Scott, a Freemason, is father to Katie aged 9 and Stephanie aged 5. Scott was made redundant in 2009, and the financial hardship and desperate search to find a job exacerbated his existing depression and anxiety until it became so severe he could no longer work. When Scott’s wife had a serious back operation that made it difficult for her to continue working as a childminder, the family faced losing their home.
We have provided a termly maintenance allowance for Katie and Stephanie, and have paid for gymnastics and swimming lessons and a laptop for them to use for school work. Scott says: “I can’t thank the Trust enough for the help and assistance. Thanks to you, we are happy, settled and the future is looking bright.”
