Gary, 56


I have suffered two spinal fractures and I am currently in long-term pain. I started working when I was 16 in a bakery before moving to Blackpool to work at the Blackpool Tower Ballroom. I loved working but I’ve had to stop because of my osteoporosis. After I left work I was very depressed. I feel like I have no prospects and working also has that social aspect because when you work you chat and meet good people but I don’t have that now.
