Our agent who does a lot of work with homeless people had been assisting another couple with trying to secure them accommodation. The couple had an urgent need however as one of them was very unwell with epilepsy. Because of their health their JSA had been stopped and an ESA claim had been started, but it meant they were left with very little to survive on in the interim. They were in absolutely desperate need of some new clothes and socks, so we sent £100 over to ensure they were at least warm and clean until the situation could be resolved. We wish we had enough funds to get people into secure housing, and it's always very sad for us when we are forced to make life more bearable on the streets rather than being able to get them into their own accommodation, but luckily our amazing agent continues to fight for those who have nowhere to live.
