Our agents contacted us to ask if we would consider helping a man in his late forties that had become homeless following a relationship breakdown. They had finally been able to secure him a flat, in a location opposite to the church he attends, however, he has to raise £400 to cover the deposit. The landlord is being helpful by allowing him to pay this over a six month period, but he is on such a tight budget putting enough away each month is going to be difficult for him. We discussed the matter and decided to offer to send him £100 which could be used to cover his bills so it frees up some money for him to put towards the deposit.

We were approached about some help for a man who has been living in a hostel for the past two years. He has finally been given a place of his own, but needed £76 for the month in advance rent. We agreed to helping with this and to round the amount up to £100 as he will need to purchase items to help him set up home.
