"I felt completed disconnected and that I was going to die alone there. I decided to move back to Merseyside so if I was found dead at least somebody would know me.”
‘I got invaluable support from the bond scheme as I hadn’t paid a bill in 23 years and it was the first time I had lived on my own. Julie met me when I was at a low point, in a fearful place, a bit erratic and not knowing what’s going on and she supported me through it all. I was worried about dealing with letters about benefits and bills and of talking to my landlord but Julie helped me develop the confidence to deal with issues myself. I have also learnt to trust people from services and no longer feel like it is ‘us and them’.
