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.

Couple forced to leave their home and live in a tent

This is a very sad case, a vulnerable couple, she 52, him 47, both suffering with health condition, wsere forced to leave their home following threats of violence.  They literally left with what they could carry and have been living in a tent in a farmers field.  Someone took pity on them, and suggested they stay in their home while they were away on holiday.  They found a flat, and a landlord who was prepared to accept housing benefit payments, but then there was a problem in that their previous landlord was refusing to give them a reference.  They finally found a landlord who was happy to work with them, understanding and sympathetic to their plight and they move into their new place early next week.  We agreed to pay £100 towards their deposit.
