Framework changes and, it is no exaggeration to say, saves people's lives. Everything we do is centered around the needs of the people we exist to support.
We hope that you find inspiration from the following case studies, which detail the lives of service users and the work of our staff.
Adam, a former drug user who spent more than three years in jail, has completely turned his life around with Framework's help. He now helps other vulnerable people to change their lives.
Chammack, 36, is one of many migrant workers from Poland to fall on hard times. He explains his descent into rough sleeping and how, with Framework’s help, he is rebuilding his life.
Jade, 27, who spent more than nine months sleeping rough and begging on the streets of Nottingham, thought that homelessness was something that happened to other people...until it happened to her.
Steven, who lived rough along the East Coast for more than ten years, had grown so used to life on the streets that he had started to abandon all hope of a return to mainstream society.
Pensioner Joan came within a whisker of losing her home after a dispute with a sub-prime lender.
Mary was referred to Last Orders after visiting her GP in June 2012. She is not an alcoholic, nor is she ever likely to be. Instead she is one of a growing number of people proactively seeking help to control their drinking.
Rebecca moved into Framework’s Elizabeth House accommodation after she was asked to leave the family home by her mum when still a teenager.
Charlotte faced a highly uncertain future when her relationship with her mother broke down and she was forced to leave the family home.
