Mr Muir, a resilient father, and his two children, Aanya (age 10) and Arjun (age 7), faced a challenging situation as Mr Muir awaited deportation to India after his release from prison. Recognizing the importance of supporting the family during this difficult period, Mr Muir sought assistance from Nellie Supports to navigate the deportation process and rebuild their lives.

Mr Muir and his children, Nellie Supports, initiated a comprehensive assessment process to provide tailored support and recommendations.
