Here’s how Foundations helped Simon to get back on his feet…
I first came into service with Foundation in 2014 when I was released from prison, they helped me with my benefits and I went to live with my mother.
She had recently moved from a first-floor flat down to a ground floor flat because she had trouble with her legs. At first the flat was nice, clean and had recently been painted. But after a few months damp began to appear, and before long the place was covered in it. I told Phil, my Foundations worker, about this and he came out to have a look. He contacted Flintshire County Council and requested that we be moved on health grounds. Phil created a report, along with support letters from our GPs, and helped my mother and I move to a two bedroom house in Holywell. Phil helped us with the council tax reduction, water rates reduction, and any other benefits we were entitled to.
If ever we got stuck with anything, bills or benefits, Phil was always willing to help out.
