I was privileged to work in a high paying job, that provided me and my family with a comfortable lifestyle. We lived in America for a couple of years, but had to return to the UK when l was made redundant. We were not able to claim any benefits for a long time, and had to get by with the help of my family living in the UK. My sister is a project co-ordinator for ECE. I was able to meet the requirements of providing food for my children with out the intervention of social services. This organisation has been a life line to me and my family, and we are so grateful.
