Disabled lady without an oven

A disabled lady came to our attention because her oven had broken and was in need of being replaced.  Her disability benefits payments are all used up trying to stay afloat with bills and food, etc. so she does not have the means to be able to replace the oven.  Cooking in a microwave isn't a suitable option for her.  We agreed to send her £80 so that she could put that towards a new oven, or buy a reconditioned oven.  We know our agents are in touch with a local organisation that offers reconditioned electrical goods, so they will make sure she gets what she needs.

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.
