After a difficult few years David* had finally got himself back on his feet after the breakdown of his marriage had left him with significant debts.
Earlier this year David received the news that he had cancer, which would involve an operation and three months recovery. This left him worried about making his monthly mortgage payments alongside his other commitments. With no savings to turn to David was very anxious about how he would manage whilst on sick leave.
How the fund helped
David heard about the fund through his employer and contacted the fund to see if we could help. The fund was able to pay David's mortgage payments over the three months that he was off work, allowing him to focus on his recovery.
"This helped him focus on his recovery alone without having the additional worry of how to maintain his mortgage payments. Emotionally this assisted his well-being and I think that is actually priceless!" Employer feedback
