Help with energy costs

Our help was needed for a man who is currently undergoing treatment for cancer in his head and neck.  He lives alone, and his current housing situation is not ideal for him.  Our agents have assisted him in applying for more suitable accommodation, as well as applying for housing benefit and putting in an application for Personal Independence Payment.  Currently his outgoings are in excess of the money he has coming in and it is friends and family that are stepping up to help him where they can.  As his treatment is quite challenging one of the crucial things is for him to avoid infection of any kind and this increases his energy costs.  We agreed to send him £100 to hep him out with this.
