Andy, an Army veteran, has an illness which makes it difficult to look after himself. Sadly, his wife had passed away, and his financial situation was such that he couldn’t afford the costs of her funeral or carry out home repairs.
The ASAP adviser contacted SSAFA who were able to provide financial assistance for both the funeral and home repairs. He also arranged for the social services to carry out a community care assessment, resulting in Andy receiving a care package which enables him to stay in his home.
Andy can’t thank ASAP, SSAFA and the social services enough for the help he has received. For the first time in years he is looking forward to the future.
