Needed urgently please. Single young man, just been diagnosed with bipolar disorder, missed his job seekers appointment through needing to sleep with his new medication. The benefits stopped because of this and will not be reinstated until mid August. He is desperate as he has no electricity or money for food. He had his own business but went bankrupt, loosing his fiancee and flat and was made homeless. He has really tried to help himself but illness last straw.
John has been unable to work for three years due to ill health including back surgery and three mini-strokes. He is trying to improve his general health by eating more healthily but does not have a cooker so is surviving mainly on microwave meals ( not very healthy!)
This lady has her 13-year-old son staying with her for the school holidays but has no money to cover the extra costs. She is battling alcohol addiction and has been dry for 3 months. She has also suffered abuse by a former partner who has left her with debt for bills he said he’d paid. We’d like to top up her gas and electricity and to give her some shopping to help ends meet while awaiting revised benefits money coming through.
