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.

Young man moves into his first home

These particular agents of ours help people move into accommodation where they have been long term homeless and would struggle with the transition of living alone.  He had been living in very temporary accommodation for a long time and never really had a home of his own before.  Finally suitable accommodation was found but did not have any furniture or anything else for that matter to move into it.  Our agents managed to get a home starter pack from the local council, but they were unable to arrange for an oven for him.  The young man is keen to get settled and begin a new healthier life, hoping to start a career with the railways.  We managed to find a decent basic oven, and including delivery and fitting came to under £200.  He should be having his new oven fitted very soon.
