Homeless man offered the chance of work

A man who is currently living rough has been offered the opportunity of employment provided he completes a CSCS Construction Course which he is due to start next Monday.  Getting this job is so important to him and it will mean he can then get a place to live.  He is in desperate need of some suitable safety boots which he currently cannot afford to buy as his Universal Credit won't stretch that far.  We found out the cost of the boots and sent over £50, enough to buy the boots and a little extra.

Single mum of three in a fix

A single mum of three children, a young teenager and 11 year old twins has recenlty had to submit a claim for Universal Credit when she was told she had to switch over.  She was a victim of domestic abuse for a number of years and relocated to a new area with the support of the Police.  Shortly after she moved she was involved in a car accident which left her with a brain injury and she lost her job.  Following being off work for twelve months, she has now found a job but doesn't start work until later this month and will have to wait for her wages to be paid  In the meantime she is without any money to pay for food or cover her bills.  We agreed to send her £150 to help her with this.
