The Real Change MCR difference:
Real Change MCR made it possible for Bryan to shop around for the most appropriate home available for his child to visit and stay at.
It was furnished, and extra Real Change MCR funding covered a months’ rent and deposit, the child’s bedding and kitchen equipment needed to look after his child well.
Real Change MCR meant Bryan could bring his child to a decent home, rather than just an accommodation unit.
Without Real Change MCR, as a man on Universal Credit, Bryan had no chance of moving to his own place, which he’s held now for a whole year, with growing confidence in his own independence.
Bryan’s relationship with his child has strengthened too, and there’s no doubt that it was Real Change MCR funding that won him the home – the room he needed – to mend their lives together.
