For those of you that read our post last week about supporting a young man facing the threat of imminent eviction, we’re delighted to say that this has been prevented – for now. Alex worked tirelessly with him for one week and he also attended our Tenancy & Independent Living Skills (TILS) course at The Training Flat. At his review with his landlord he proudly presented everything he had done with us to put things right and to be regarded as a trusted and reliable tenant going forward. One of things he cited was our ‘Peer Expert’ who was part of the TILS delivery on Wednesday. As a tenant herself she shared powerful messages about her experiences and the importance of taking the initiative to sort things out and to take back control. We’re naturally thrilled that James gets to keep his home. This will be reviewed again in January. However, for all the other ‘James’ that don’t have support in an austerity-hit sector, we fear for their tenancies and futures. Social enterprises like us hold part of the answer and we hope to grow to meet an un-met need for life-changing support.
