£80 needed for a home starter pack, wardrobe and chest of drawers

This single dad hit rock bottom, lost his job, and his partner walked out, taking his five year old daughter. While he was out, his ex removed items from the house. He is under the GP for anxiety, depression and debt management, as he is now in rent arrears. He needs the basics of a home start pack and some furniture so that he has storage for clothes, rather than the floor. He begs to have staying contact with his daughter, but needs drawers for clothes, pots and pans and kitchen equipment so he can cook healthy meals for his daughter.
