Ex Soldier refused help with housing and other benefits and made homeless

Our agent is helping a family of five, the father an ex soldier with the British Army. He served for 14 years and was medically discharged last year due to an injury. His local council have evicted them over arrears and are now stating that they do not believe he is eligible for housing and other benefits and have currently suspended his application for assistance. The family are being temporarily housed in a local B&B, on a bed and breakfast only basis which is being paid for by another organisation supporting the family. We were asked to offer the family a grant of £100 to allow them to buy some food other than just the breakfast they currently receive. Our agent is helping them appeal their current housing situation.
