In 2016-17, we supported 392 people, and we've highlighted 4 of their stories. These include Arthur, who was at risk of homelessness, and Livinia who was struggling to settle into her new home. We were really proud of our volunteer Joginder who really blossomed. Mo was one of the many people who lost out in the transfer of DLA to PIP, while Edwina made a film talking about her experience of social care. You can find out more here:
