£140 needed for a smartphone and a gas and electricity top-up
From Newcastle upon Tyne - 33 years old.
We got M on a CSCS (construction skills) training course with TRN Construction Skill Academy and he's required to do some e-learning due to Covid-19 restrictions, so he requires a smart phone. He will also be able to use it for emails and access his Universal Credit portal. M had a joint Universal Credit claim with his ex partner, but they recently split up and she kept his money so he has been without gas and electricity since Christmas. This will help M through this cold spell and be vital for his mental health in this tough time.
