Throwing a lifeline

We were approached about a young man, who had previously been street homeless but was now in accommodation, safe and dry.  However, his crippling depression and anxiety moved in with him and things have got on top of him.  His finances had got out of control and after paying his bills, his remaining money was sucked up by his bank overdraft, leaving him and his dog without food, or any money for the gas and electricity meters.  We agreed to send across a sum of £80 to allow him to top up his meters and buy some much needed food.  Also, he was supposed to have been previously supported in terms of financial budgeting, but this will now be taken over by a new agency that will fully support him going forward.
