Young expectant mum offered a home for her and her baby

This young mum is a 22 year old care leaver.  She is currently pregnant and her baby is due in less than a couple of months.  She has been offered a home at a supported living facility and has been successful in securing a grant to purchase some of the items she needs, such as a bed and a fridge.  Other grants have helped with baby things, such as a cot, blankets, clothes, etc, but she still needs money for bedding, quilt and pillows.  We agreed to send £100 to help her to be able to buy these things in readiness for her move.

Man off the streets and into a home of his own

Our client is a young man who has been street homeless for sometime.  He has now been offered a permanent place of his own, but obviously has nothing to his name in terms of furniture or white goods.  Our agents have applied to his local council for a welfare grant and they have supplied a fridge, kettle and a toaster.  A cooker and a washing machine have been applied to one grant for, and for a freezer to another grant.  This means he still needs a bed and a chair or sofa of some kind and we were asked to help with this.  We agreed to send him £100 so that he can access his local Emmamus to get both of these from them second hand.  Any left over money can be used to purchase some bedding.
