A man in his late 50s is currently living in private rented accommodation where he is surrounded by people much younger than him that are very loud and play music constantly which disturbs him. He has complained to his landlord about this, and because the landlord feels he is being unreasonable with his request has given him notice to quit. Finding himself at risk of homelessness he approached his local authority for help and sheltered accommodation has been found for him in a more appropriate area where he would be living in an area with people his own age. He suffers with an underlying mental health condition and high anxiety, and has been subjected to anti-semetic abuse, which has now meant he feels unable to leave his home safely. Due to the quickness of accommodation being found he has to accept it immediately or this accommodation will be lost. Being only in receipt of job seekers allowance though, he does no savings to afford a man with a van for a couple of hours to move his belongings and furniture. Our agents are very concerned that he does not miss this vital opportunity or he could end up in temporary accommodation which would only be worse for his mental health. We agreed to send him £150.
