Working with Portsmouth Football Club

ECASS, provided an amazing experience for a couple of smashing young Ukrainian lads and their family, who have chosen Portsmouth as their new home.

We were told to go and see ECASS because we had a housing issue which was very worrying and we thought we was going to lose our home . Upon arrival to their offices last week ,,we was made a cup of tea and made to feel really comfortable . The gentleman that helped us then went through our paper work and helped us organise it in a better fashion and then we went through potential options that we had . We felt very confident about what decision to make after our visit and have now resolved the issue . Thankyou to the ECASS team for their support in our time of need
