Clara was abused as a child and has needed long term psychiatric care as an adult. She recently received support to more into an independent tenancy, but had no way to afford all the items she needed…
Clara was referred to us by a Community Psychiatric Nurse. Clara suffered sexual and physical abuse as a child and spent periods of time in care. As an adult, due to mental health issues and a history of serious self-harm, she has been admitted to hospital on many occasions. With the support of her care team she moved to supported accommodation to learn the skills she needed to live independently. More recently, as her mental and physical health improved further, she has been allocated with her own independent tenancy. Whilst daunting, with continued help, this is a positive step towards a more stable and happy future. However, as she is currently unable to work, Clara had no way to afford all the items she needed to help make her first real home. Thanks to your support we have been able to provide Clara with a fridge freezer and washing machine that were essential for her wellbeing going forward.
On behalf of Clara and the thousands of others we are able to help each year with your support, thank you!
