Bill, a retired veteran, contacted ASAP on his release from prison. He had originally been given a place in a care home, but as he wanted his independence back he had since been awarded a local authority house. He’d ended up in a town he’d never lived in before, with very few possessions. ASAP helped him to claim all the benefits to which he was entitled, and contacted SSAFA who helped him furnish his home. ASAP also liaised with the local social services department to obtain aids and equipment to help with Bill’s mobility issues. With the support he’s received, Bill has his independence back.
“The help provided by ASAP has made me feel much less alone, and more optimistic for my future.”
