Coronavirus hardship – Story

The Coronavirus pandemic has brought not only sickness but hardship too and in many different ways. This is Rob’s story:

Rob was self employed. He had always provided for his family and was very proud of this and the fact that he had never been in a difficult financial position before. But, all this changed when coronavirus came along with lockdown and all work dried up for Rob. He found it so hard to ask for help but thankfully he contacted Rachel at Catholic Care’s Community Response Service. Rob was pleasantly surprised at the help available and how Rachel put him at his ease.

“This has been a very trying time for us all and not just my family. To have someone like Rachel who puts such effort into helping people as she has for us is exceptional” Rob ended by saying “Thank you for all your help”
