I is self employed, on a very low wage and has recently moved into a rented property with his partner and young son after a difficult time in their previous property. Due to such a low income, the family are struggling to pay their rent and are slowly falling behind on payments. A housing benefit application has been completed and he is awaiting a reply.

I require the requested money to purchase furniture / white goods. I have been in supported housing and with the support of Developing Initiatives for Support in the Community (DISC) have secured my own accommodation. The supported accommodation I am in is furnished and I am unable to take any furniture or white goods with me when I move out. I would be grateful of any support that you may be able to provide.
