Families we've already helped

Thanks to a brilliant team effort, the Ahmed family can enjoy a comfortable home that meets the needs of their daughter Zaara who is using a wheelchair. When the family were struggling in their existing home, our teams worked together to find a more suitable home that could be adapted to meet Zaara’s needs.

The family were delighted with the outcome: “We are really pleased with our new home; everyone was very helpful and understanding throughout the whole process. The team ensured we were happy with the changes every step of the way in order to make the process as easy as possible.”

Who we've already helped

Mrs Hutchinson has been a tenant with Newark and Sherwood Homes since 2002. Following a change in her circumstances, it was established that the first floor property in which she lived was no longer suitable for her needs. It was our team’s job to find something more suitable and following consideration of her medical circumstances, an alternative flat in the same location, on the ground floor was identified. Mrs Hutchinson was successful in being allocated this property which allowed her to remain in close proximity to friends and neighbours. Mrs Hutchinson was extremely happy and grateful of the allocation especially being able to remain close to her friends and neighbours who have grown to provide a strong support network for one another.
