Why I do what I do
This project often leaves you with a lot of sadness when you hear people’s stories and come to understand more about their circumstances. However, this week, we have received some lovely news which has strengthened our resolve to keep on keeping on.
A client who has suffered homelessness and ill health for much of his life and has never really had a penny to his name has finally been awarded his Personal Independence Payment. Thanks to our friends at Rainbow of Hope, he won his tribunal and is now in a much more secure position than he has ever been in before.
And what’s the first thing he’s going to do with his back payment, you say? Book a holiday to Torremolinos? Some new clothes? No. He is going to finally buy headstones for his parents’ graves. How lovely.
