GUEST JOURNEY - “Garnet Kennedy*”

Garnet came to us via the mustard tree who suggested that they visit us. They had recently been released from prison and were fleeing violence in Ireland.

Garnet had two children who were currently in foster care and was working with the children's social

worker. We placed them in a hotel for a few nights.

During this time we worked with The Mustard Tree and on the out to help Garnet get replacements for their ID documents and claim benefits. This meant that they were able to claim housing benefits and were placed in an ABEN accommodation. Due to this work, Garnet was able to get help from their children's social worker and they were placed in their own accommodation and their children were allowed to return home to their care.
