Dave has mental health and alcohol problems, and OCD. Despite being a good budgeter, he couldn’t afford to keep his flat warm. Last summer, he was walking with a friend in the countryside and fell, becoming house bound. Church, family and friends rallied round, but he experienced major benefit problems. He couldn’t afford to get to the physiotherapist, and loss of benefits, debt and other problems piled up. In the end he was admitted into the mental health system. Dave is out now, but is frightened about his future. He feels he is just surviving.
