Our contact had been contacted to say that someone she was working with had sustained a knife attack, leaving him with a slashed face. She arranged to meet him in a public place and when she got there, he had just been attacked again, which she assisted the Police with.
He has been living on the streets, accompanied by his very well behaved dog. Our contact has been working with this man's local authority to get him off the streets and into housing, even if temporary housing to begin with, an appointment has been booked for this weekend. She had found somewhere for him in the next town to go to for a few nights, to get off the streets and be able to feel safe for the first time in ages. We agreed we would cover the cost for four nights in bed and breakfast accommodation, at a location that would allow him to take his dog along with him.
In the end it was possible to pay for him to stay in safe accommodation for four nights and also to have some spare money to buy some shoes as well.
