I needed food for my family, I was stressed, depressed, and suffering with anxiety. So, I was worried about being able to feed my children that weekend. I am pleased that coming to One Community helped me to have peace of mind that weekend as I knew my children would be feed. Great Project to have in the community. Jodie N

I came to One Community to get assistance with getting my Disability Living Allowance re-instated as it stopped for 5 weeks. Also, housing condition was not very conducive as it had damp that aggrevated my health. I was feeling down and was ready to walk away from my life. One Community has helped to make calls to the private landlord and also to the DLA team, and to get my money reinstated and to get an inspection done by the council for my privately rented accommodation. I have now started doing some painting and decorating at my flat., and feel I can now start living a normal life again. I will be recommending One Community services to family and friend....

I was fleeing domestic violence from London with no support, and I was signposted to One Community where they gave me food voucher, clothing, and help to find a job. I am now feel that I am getting help for my needs. Thank You

I wish you all the best for the New Year 2017. When I came to Tilbury from up North, I didn't know where to turn. I found out about how you help people in the community. I came in and you were all so helpful and friendly. You helped me with my CV which helped me to get a job. I really appreciate all the work that One Community does. I will always keep in touch and never forget you all. I wish One Community all the luck in the World.

Lots of love

This is my testimonial explaining my situation and my heartfelt appreciation to Bernice Barning my first point of contact at One Community drop-in centre. A couple of weeks ago, I found myself in a scary place. Universal Credit was refusing to pay me any monies at all because I couldn't provide a tenancy or written letter.
