Meet Lee

Lee says that working with the Foundation means that the local authority can get instant access to people in crisis and start unpicking the problems that people are having before they get even worse.

“It gives me a bit of hope because if the service wasn’t there we wouldn’t get to see these people and their problems may not be sorted out. It’d certainly be a lot further down the line.”

He says that working with First Love Foundation alongside the Council’s local authority benefits service works really well for everyone involved.

“This may be partly due to the fact that their benefits have been stopped and they are being chased for money.

Hopefully it demonstrates that we may be able to help them to sort out their current benefit problems and once this trust has been established they are more likely to contact us in future to prevent the problems re-occurring.
