A man who has lived at the same address for over 20 years is being made homeless by his landlord. He struggles with his mental health which he has been unable to receive treatment for, this means he cannot cope with taking good care of himself, such as washing or personal care. He is in receipt of Universal Credit, but after loans he repays to the DWP he is left with £50 per week. He is not due another benefit payment until the 16th of May and is currently completely out of money. In fact when we were told about him he hadn't eaten anything in 4 days. We immediately sent him £20 to get some food. He has no money for gas or electric which means he is unable to have any lighting on or cook any food, nor does he have any food either. We agreed to send him a further £80 to help him with this.
