Linked in to support agencies to keep him in his house

Paul was on the verge of being evicted from his home of 30 years due to debts built up on his rent after a difficult time for him with his health. A pensioner with few family or friends who could provide support, he was looking at ending up on the street.

At a point of crisis, Paul went down to the nearby Brentwood Day Centre to see if they could help. He was told by his landlord he will be evicted if in 1 week he didn’t pay rent arrears in full. With limited friends and family network, he was looking at ending up at the Bed Every Night emergency night shelter or worse - rough sleeping. Fortunately John, the manager at Brentwood, referred the case to the Real Change.
