Meet HAB’s new support worker - Carol Wilson.

Carol, whose post is funded by Eighth Rung, a Finchley Reform Synagogue Homelessness project, joined the team in March. She had previously spent more than 30 years in the NHS working on mental health issues in the community from mother-and-baby to geriatrics.

Carol is delighted to have transferred her skills to helping HAB’s clients avoid eviction, manage debt, stay well and access benefits they are entitled to.

She says: “The current climate has brought a lot of hardship for people already under pressure. My role is to care, support and enable so that people can make the right choices. Where they haven’t got a voice, I can help them move forward.”
