When Pauline was struck down by a condition called Guillain-Barre syndrome (GB) her whole world fell apart. GB left Pauline paralysed and unable to talk or move. She spent five months in hospital and a further four in specialist rehabilitation with no idea of what her future now held.
On discharge and with her mobility severely affected she found she could no longer live in her former home and was moved into temporary accommodation. Aster stepped in and offered her a level access bungalow. Unfortunately, because of her change in circumstances she could no longer work and was forced to claim universal credit (UC).
Our Financial Wellbeing team helped Pauline navigate the processes and applications for grants and the additional financial support she was entitled to.
Pauline was over the moon: ‘I couldn’t have done this without all your help and support, and I am very grateful’Contact us
