Work place support
Izzy had two children to support single-handedly. The financial and emotional impact of having to set up home away from her partner, who had become manipulative and abusive, impacted on her personal and professional life. She was struggling to complete her ICE professional review and confided in her ICE mentor, Peter Glass, that she was in financial difficulty and needed to put the professional development on hold until things settled down. Peter immediately recommended the Ben Fund to her and encouraged her to apply.
