Changing Futures 2


CF Candidate-2 was referred by her GP following the premature death of her husband from Covid-19 in October 2020. Her husband was the sole breadwinner for the household and she is now unable to meet her financial needs. She was distraught, suicidal and suffering from grief and acute anxiety when we first met her. We were able to get immediate bereavement counselling support and we have funded an ongoing course of grief management. In addition, we referred her to Shelter with her financial management, helped her make a CV and discussed self-employment opportunities as she would like to offer a home ironing service. She is being visited by our transformational coach every week and her self-employment is being fully supported. Following our interventions, she has made tremendous progress and her anxiety is being managed without the need for antidepressants which were originally discussed with her GP.


When she was referred to a social prescriber who introduced her to the Changing Futures project.
