We were approached to help a single man who has been off work because of a broken wrist. While he has been waiting for his Universal Benefit payments to begin he has been relying on friends, family and foodbanks, but he has exhausted these now. His first Universal Credit payment is not due for at least another week. He is in arrears with his rent and has other debts mounting up. Our agents are assisting him to deal with the debt, but he needed money in the meantime to be able to purchase food and put some money on his energy meters. We agreed to send him £70 to help him out.
