Working, but on a zero hours contract

This young man had managed to secure employment but it was a zero hours contract.  Added to that because he had started work in the middle of the month he was going to be without any money for six weeks.  He didn't have any money to catch a bus to work and was walking the several miles there and back each day.  Estranged from his partner he couldn't have his young daughter to visit as he was unable to feed her when she visited as he didn't have any food to feed himself or give her.  We agreed a sum of £150 to help him and to hopefully keep his head above water until he could be paid.
