Framework changes and, it is no exaggeration to say, saves people's lives. Everything we do is centered around the needs of the people we exist to support.
We hope that you find inspiration from the following case studies, which detail the lives of service users and the work of our staff.
'Russell House' case studies:
Michelle was in “total despair” when she was first helped by Framework. She was homeless, addicted to alcohol and drugs, estranged from her family and tired with life. With the help of Framework’s Potter Street service she is now living independently.
Michelle felt like “the bottom had dropped out of her world” when her relationship broke down and she became homeless. Framework’s Russell House emergency accommodation service in Newark helped her to rebuild her life. This is her remarkable story…
Thomas was homeless. He was deep in debt, sofa surfing and his life was going nowhere. Without the help of Russell House in Newark he believes he would have become street homeless.
Alex* was trapped in an unhealthy cycle of drug, alcohol abuse and jail. His relationship with his family was broken and he was on a down ward spiral towards street homelessness and oblivion. Russell House in Newark has changed his life.
Shaun was depressed and facing homelessness. He was at a low point in his life. Framework gave him a place to live. They supported him...they worked with him to live independently and get his life back on track.
Stevie was "a mess." She was homeless and staying on friends’ sofas. She did not see a future for herself until she was helped by Framework in Newark.
