Homeless man finally gets a place to live

We were contacted about a man who had been street homeless, he'd not long since been released from hospital and then had no clothes at all to wear on his discharge from hospital.  He has been offered a caravan to live in, which will get him off the streets, which is wonderful.  However, he does not have enough money to get a gas cannister to provide heat and energy to the van, so that he can cook.  We agreed to send across £36 which would be enough to provide a filled container of gas, the deposit being overlooked by the company supplying it as they know our contact well.

Homeless man who was sofa surfing now back onto the streets

We were approached by our agent asking for help for a man she has been assisting.  He had been sofa surfing with his two friends, a husband and wife.  Sadly the husband has now died and the fact that they were all sofa surfing with friends has now been detected and this is not allowed to continue as it goes against the rules of their friend's tenancy..  Her client has been forced to leave and back on to the streets, but as he has nowhere to go she asked for enough money to be able to buy him tent.  We sent across £50 to cover the cost of a tent she'd seen on offer at a local store.  Hopefully this will provide him with some shelter at least.
