A year ago my father-in-law was made redundant from his job where he had spent the last 15 years working. Since then he hasn’t been able to find a job – the main reason is his ability to communicate isn’t the best due to loss of hearing and English is his second language. He seems to have no sense of purpose at the moment.
I am getting worried about his mental health now as his home life has been thrown into disruption due to repairs after a storm damaged his house a few months ago.
What I would like to ask the RiotACT people is – where does someone go to get work from here on in. I am thinking of simple things like a letterbox drop etc where he can get exercise and earn a little bit of pocket money. Are there any other suggestions that people might have?
