Maggie’s Story

We assisted single, separated from her partner and pregnant Mum, Maggie along with her two children to move from unsuitable temporary Council accommodation. We found her a lovely three bedroom house in Hersham backing onto playing fields. Maggie was on maternity leave from her job as a cashier at a High Street bank at the time of the move. Keen to get back to work after having her third child, we visited Maggie regularly, helping her with budgeting and supporting her transition back to work after her maternity leave. No longer stressed about finances and insecure housing, Maggie and her partner re-kindled their relationship. One year on and Maggie has successfully applied for a new job. Her and her partners’ income is now at a level that they no longer are eligible or require support from Housing Benefit.
