The client came to us over a year ago when he was rough sleeping, from there we offered him a place in our supported accomodation. Over the last year we have worked with him providing him with support and various skills to enable him to live independently. He is now at a point where he has been given keys to his own flat and needs help furnishing it. This money would help us purchase a new oven and some furnishings to go into the property.
