Pay it Forward - Help an individual to access much needed specialist employment support and guidance when they most need it.

by Suzanne Eusman in Sheffield, England, United Kingdom

Covid-19 has impacted on so many people, so many people have lots their jobs, struggled financially, struggled with isolation and not sure where to turn for help. 

Adults with additional needs have been hit harder than many, support services are closed, community places are closed and they many with little to no support. 

Our service provides completely person centred support, helping people overcome barriers, feel understood, reducing isolation and helping people to believe in themselves again. Supporting individuals to stay connected and have hope for their future. 

We offer one to one support to individuals who just dont know where to go for help. Our challenge is that this support is not funded, those accessing this support need to come with some form of social care budget to access this or self fund our support. 

Self funding is not an option for everyone, some people are struggling on basic benefits, unemployed and paying for support just is not something they can even consider. 

We want to make this support available for everyone. People are contacting us in tears, desperate for help and we know we can help them - but the funding gets in the way. We do what we can but as a charity it is not possible to help everyone. 

We are asking you to help us, give someone hope and help people who are most at need to access help, right when they need it without the worry about additional financial pressure. 

We are asking for small contributions to help change someones live and give them a little hope that someone cares. 

Any help counts, we will use any funds to go into a Pay It Forward pot to help those most in need of help and no other options. 

This week proved to us how much this was needed when a young lady called us and told us that she was about to made homeless, could not afford her rent anymore but had a CV that was outstanding. She just needed someone to give her help to get back into work, someone to believe in her. With your help we can support so many people like this young lady.

Any help you can give helps towards changing a life!
