Help with signing new tenancy

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.

Homeless man without clothes

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.
