Case Study April 2022

The Emmaus team recently worked very closely with an individual who had been in temporary accommodation for quite some time after a relationship breakdown. This person called Emmaus one day recently after receiving an eviction letter stating he must leave the property the following day. This person was horrified at the thought of living on the streets saying he would never be able to cope at his age. The East Riding Team quickly called the council who kindly agreed to extend his stay so long as the team provide an in-reach service. The team quickly got to work recognising that this person would make a great tenant. After applying to all that was available, the individual received a call to view a flat nearby.  This chap was very nervous on the day of the viewing as he didn’t want to get his hopes up. However, the viewing went really well, and he was offered the property. Acquiring this property also meant that he could stay close to his family which meant the world to him. Two weeks later, and will the help of the team, he finally moved in and had a place to call his own. The team were so please that they could help him and, as this case study shows, access to private rental properties can make a huge difference to a person’s life and future
