Positive Social Impact
Personal – Mr E can now support his family, without the stress and burden of the impending legal action and he is able to get help and support on future matters where his understanding of the English language may limit him. Health is primarily driven by social factors and this entire family can now work together in a positive way for one another and as member of the locality.
Financial – Mr E is able to work free from debt and bankruptcy. He and his family are now receiving financial support to further the quality of theirs and their sons lives and they have access to the Motability scheme.
Community – Shared lessons rather than having to learn from your own mistakes or successes you can reach out to the community and ask if anyone has had an experience that could be valuable to your situation.
Without SO Support
Mr E would have been facing a huge sum of money to pay the insurance company with no understanding of why, or how to deal with it. He would have suffered a possible criminal conviction and bankruptcy. He would have been leaving a severely disabled child and his wife with no financial support and no means of transport.
Without support language and cultural barriers lead to the exclusion of individuals in communities and without all members being active participants be to the detriment of the community as a whole.
