Julie,41, was struggling to cope. She had no money and was worried for the future of her five-year-old son. Without the help of the Homelessness Prevention Service it is likely she would have lost her home as well.
“I was at the point where I had not got any money. I had to go to Framework for help with a food hamper... If I had not got their help I really don’t know where I would have gone. This made me feel very down and I was not myself for about five weeks. As I had a five-year-old son I felt like I had let him down.
How I was helped
“They helped me to get on top of my bills and were there as somebody to talk to…as I could not get my head around what was going on.”
The difference it has made
“They helped me to deal with the stress of it all.”
“If they were not there to help I dread to think about what would have happened…I have a young son and there was just no money coming in."
Why Framework is so important...
“Because there is nowhere else you can go for help.”
