MWS Completes One year

27 April 2016

A health and justice service model designed to stop people losing their homes when times are tough has hit its one year anniversary having helped over 120 clients and achieved an outstanding success rate in allowing clients to decide whether they will stay in their home.

Funded by the Legal Services Board over two years the case workers have found a range of factors causing the mortgage stress that can potentially lead to people being forced from their homes because of default. Family violence, mental health issues, unemployment and injury can all send home owners on a downward path.

“We have helped people get hardship relief from mortgagees and other creditors, helped resolve complaints in our client’s favour and even won compensation and refunds for some,” said Rachna Muddogouni, CEO of Comm Unity Plus Services, one of the partners in the project.
