thrive logoTCC's partner organisation Thrive is campaigning this autumn to challenge the Financial Conduct Authority to stop people becoming over-indebted, together with Durham University, Church Action on Poverty, and other national charities. 
In order to do this we need to hear from people who have been in debt to the point where it impacted upon them being able to pay for essentials like food, gas and electric
If you would be willing to do this, please get in touch with Kay Polley, TCC's lead organiser on 01978 262588 or email This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it .

Brenda"Hi, my name is Brenda.  Are you like me frustrated with the respite care for the under 65s?  Well let’s do something about it.  This is my story, perhaps you can relate to it. 

My husband John who is 52 has had a neurodegenerative condition for the past 22 years.  I have cared for him during this time, with regular respite once a month for a week.  Recently, he has been assessed as needing nursing care rather than residential, and I am struggling to get him the care he needs, especially where he can be with people of a similar age. 

I have brought this issue to TCC, and now we would like to know is there anyone out there in a similar situation.  If so please get in touch, and let’s do something about this together.”

Brenda is a member of St. Margaret’s Church, which is a member group of TCC.  Brenda is now working together with leaders from other TCC groups to research this issue.  They would like to hear about your experiences of respite for people under 65, whether this is good or bad.

You can contact the group through TCC’s lead organiser Kay Polley by phoning 01978 262588 / 07528525872, or emailing This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it .  Just by sharing your story you could help make a difference.
