#WeCare - Our HIA never give up helping people to live safely in their homes

Debbie came to the Home Improvement Agency in Haslingden for support last year when she had nowhere else to turn.  Debbie, who is in her 40s and owns her own home, had not been able to work since 2006 following a freak accident on holiday which caused a serious leg injury.

The injury and operation that followed triggered a multitude of illnesses and despite many more operations Debbie has been suffering immense pain on a daily basis.

Debbie was struggling financially when she approached the Home Improvement Agency as she had not qualified for help from many charities due to her young age.  Her home was in desperate need of extensive repair and she was particularly concerned about the roof.

Wendy, a Caseworker at the HIA, worked tirelessly to contact organisations and eventually raised £3200 from four different charities which helped pay for a re-roof, carried out by one of the HIA’s trusted contractors.. 

Debbie said:  ‘Wendy at Mosscare St Vincent’s worked tirelessly to get the funding for a new roof that I desperately was in need of. All the work that was carried was to a professional standard.  I am over the moon, thank you Wendy.’
