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.
'Womens Services' case studies:
Julie 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.
Andy* found it difficult to get through each day. He was homeless and had no confidence in himself. He saw no future at all. Framework's Potter Street emergency accommodation at Potter Street, Worksop, helped him.
Kerry's life was out of control. She was hooked on cannabis and had attempted suicide. She was homeless and had no future. Framework helped her to get back into education and discover a future.
Darren was homeless,abusing drugs and alcohol and committing crime. He was estranged from his family and, by his own admission, heading back to prison. Framework is helping him take the right path.
Chris was struggling to make a fresh start after leaving prison. He was homeless and living a chaotic life-style. With support from Framework’s Targets service he is now living happily in his own flat – away from crime and closet to the support he needs.
Isobel, 54, cannot read or write. When letters started arriving about her benefit entitlements and threatening her with eviction she had no idea where to turn for help. Framework helped her stay in her home and end what she described as a "nightmare."
Chris was struggling to cope with issues of depression, mental illness and alcohol addiction when he was faced with eviction. Framework’s Solutions service helped him to remain in his home and get stable again.
Rebecca’s relationship with her mum had broken down. She had nowhere to go and a lot to learn about life. Elizabeth House put a roof over her head and gave her sense of independence and self-respect.
Mr & Mrs Wesley
Mrs Wesley has been a full-time carer to her husband since he suffered a debilitating stroke. As a result she suffered financially and emotionally and almost lost her home to debt and mortgage arrears. Framework helped her to stay in her home.
