Grace’s Story: A Big Change
Now, let us introduce you to Grace. She had a tough time. Her husband had to go abroad for work, and things got even harder when he got sick with COVID-19 and passed away. Grace had to look after her mum, who was not well. She lost her job, and it was tricky to keep her home warm without much money.
Grace found out about Better Housing Better Health, and things started looking up. Our team put in a new boiler in her home, which made a huge difference. It didn’t just make her home warmer; it made life better for Grace and her mum.
Better Housing Better Health didn’t just help with practical stuff; they were also great at talking with Grace and solving problems.
Helping One Home at a Time
At Better Housing Better Health, we think everyone should have a warm and safe home. Grace’s story is just one example of how we can help when things get tough.
As winter is here, we want to help even more people. We don’t want anyone to be cold in their own home. If you or someone you know is struggling to pay energy bills or keep their home warm, BHBH is here to help.
