Bipolar mum needs support

A couple suffering ill health have been struggling to get income to provide for themselves and their two children. Pollyann, who has been out of work since 2010, suffers from bipolar disorder, while her partner currently has problems with his knees which is keeping him from working in his construction job. 

At the moment their benefits are being reviewed, but in the meantime they have gotten into debt and had the bailiffs round. The situation is causing much stress for Pollyann.

When Pollyann came into the Distribution Centre this week, as well as providing her with food for the family which immediately lifts some of the weight from her shoulders, we were able to spend time with her just listening to her story and ensuring she was getting the help she needed to come through this difficult time.
