A family from Iraq have been users of CLEAR services for several years, periodically calling for advice.

Unfortunately, the mother contracted a serious illness and remained in hospital for four months. It was a stressful time for Mr K, looking after their children, getting the older ones to school, whilst also being fearful of leaving his wife who needed constant care.

This meant that his 14 year old daughter was staying off school to look after their year old baby. CLEAR assisted the family liaising with the school, Social Services and a health visitor to arrange funding for a child minder and supported Mrs K to ensure that she got the practical help needed to live at home.
