“He seems to be sat in darkness - the lights are off all the time”

A Resident Approached Us With Concerns For A Neighbour. He'd Been Asking To Borrow Money From Them. Here's What Happened

When a resident told Sharon, one of our money advisors, that they were concerned for their neighbour, she found a gentleman in need of a lot of help.

This person had found themselves struggling with money, debt, mental and physical health problems and issues with his energy supply. But things had spiralled out of control and he just couldn’t cope.

After Sharon reached out to this gentleman, she teamed up with Steve, one of our keyworkers, and together they’ve helped get things sorted for him. They’ve championed his cause when he’s not been able speak up for himself.

It’s a perfect example of how Northwards staff help people in ways that a lot of people may not even be aware of.

Watch Sharon and Steve tell the story in their own words:
