£40 needed for a phone
From Brighton - 37 years old.
This gentleman has been placed into emergency accommodation. He is away from his normal support circle, isolated in an unfamiliar place as he is Clinically Extremely Vulnerable. He cannot access his Universal Credit (UC) account as he has no means of logging onto the system. He therefore has no benefits as the new UC stipulates contact via the app. A phone is the only option, and will also enable him to keep in touch with his family and friends.
