No money for energy

Our contacts asked us to help a single formerly homeless man who has been offered a permanent home, but although he can move into it, does not have any money to put on to the prepaid electricity meter, so that he can have an electricity supply.  We agreed to send over £40 to allow him to do this and be able to occupy his new home.

Young man found home after living homeless on the streets

The man we helped is a young man who following being kicked out of the house by a family member had found himself homeless and on the streets.  He has been with a homeless shelter for a few months, but has now been offered a permanent place to live.  He has a learning disability, and struggles to communicate.  His parents were killed in an accident when he was a young child, so he has no one else to look out for him.  He was recently attacked and his attacker is now serving a prison sentence for this, so he is very vulnerable.  He needs some things for his flat, so we agreed to send him £70 so that he could buy some items second hand from his local selling sites and pages.
