Our case, a single man, previously homeless has been offered a permanent home, however although he has managed to secure most of the items he needs, he has not been able to get hold of a bed. We agreed to send him £100 to go towards the cost of that, or maybe cover the cost of a second hand one and have money left over to buy some bedding.

We were asked to help a man currently living in a homeless shelter, he has been offered a place to live but needs help with the first weeks rent so that he is able to sign the tenancy, he will be able to handle this going forward though. We agreed to pay this for him, and sent across £82.62 directly to the housing association, then a further £30 to the gentlemen to help him out get settled in.

Our case was a man who had been street homeless for several months, with very little clothing and no way to claim any benefits as he didn't have an address to give to the DWP. An agency had offered to provide him with the support necessary to assist him with his benefits claim. They contacted us though, as he has very limited clothing and is in desperate need of some funds to purchase replacements. We agreed to send across to the agency £70 as digital vouchers to be used in a High Street Discount store, as he doesn't have a bank account either to receive the money.
