Lady needs first weeks rent in order to be able to move

A lady who had previously been renting from a private landlord, has been struggling because the landlord is refusing to carry out essential repairs.  A social housing place has been found for her, but in order to be able to move in she needs the first weeks rent of £95.  We agreed to send her this, plus an extra amount to take the total up to £150, as she will have additional costs due to moving.

A fresh start

Our agents contacted us today about a man in his forties they've been helping who has recently been released from prison.  He wants to avoid getting into trouble again and going back to jail so he has been doing all he can to engage with the service our agents are providing, as well as the Job Centre.  He has been offered permanent accommodation but needed to find £100 to cover a necessary fee to be able to do this.  We agreed that we would send across £150 to allow him some money to buy some essentials that he'll need when moving into a new place.

Help with moving costs

We were approached about a lady who had been getting into financial trouble as the property she was housed in with a private landlord was too expensive for her to manage.  Alternative accommodation was found for her, which would be within her financial means but she did not have any available money to pay for someone to move her furniture and belongings.  We agreed to send across £100 to help her with that.
