Improving lives with help from Live Well

“We visited the tenant and noticed a lack of furniture and asked where the tenant slept, and how they cooked as he had no bed, cooker or fridge. He told us that he bought takeaway food and slept on a sofa as he could not afford more as his energy bill was very high and there was no money left over.”
