Esme went through a rough patch in her life, when she was forced to sell her house after being made redundant and out of work for a year. The move from her home to rented accommodation was tough on Esme, and the process left her without many basic items she had previously been able to rely upon. The Care Workers Charity was able to support Esme with some essential home furnishings.
