This is the hardest group for agencies to source funding for, they are so far down the chain of needing help, with almost everyone coming before them. He had recently been housed, after a long time waiting, and temporaily houses in a hostel. We were asked to help them with purchasing some white goods, and they had a list of things they needed, as where he'd been moved to there was nothing there at all. We all agreed that we would send across £100 so that this young man with the help of his support worker, could try to source second hand items in the area that he lives so that he could get more for his money, plus it keeps things that are already in circulation out of landfill, so everyone wins.
