WHAT OUR COMMUNITY SAYS ABOUT US
"So grateful for all your support with online form filling and telephone calls. I could never have managed this on my own. My physical health is very poor, and all this was playing havoc with me mentally. Without your help and support I was getting nowhere and just going round in circles. I really appreciated your calm and friendly manner which did not make me feel stupid or silly which was how I felt when dealing with most people on the phone. You were so patient and took so much time to explain it all to me. Financially it has made a big difference. I was not aware of these entitlements, worked all my days and never got a penny back until now and I cried when I got that huge cheque. Once again I don't know how to thank you enough."
"You have been huge to support to me and my family during these very bad times. My English is very poor and I cannot understand computer things. With 5 children in a small flat, I was very stressed. After this please be invited to my house for tea and dinner, this how we do things in Syria and my wife is a good cook".
" (The One Stop Shop Advisor) helped me greatly financially and made me feel self empowered and confident in myself again. Service she gave was excellent and I have every confidence in all her advice. She always keeps in touch and I feel much better for speaking with her."
"Since I moved into the flat the help I have had from WC has been fantastic, I can't thank you enough for what you have done for my money and my health. I don't know what would have happened to me, I was so down and lonely, full of anxiety and stressed out about my eyesight and everything that was going on. Didnae know about things I could claim for. You have become a good friend to me."
