C was housed by our charity in an emergency situation when she fled a relationship breakdown, with the first week’s rent covered. She currently lives in Hampshire but has to commute to London. The extra travel costs have meant she is again struggling for rent, as a care leaver with no family network to help her out. It has been very positive she could keep her job through all this, but we want to support her back to a fully stable home situation.
The client is a single mum with 2 children who is enthusiastically studying and trying to find work in the construction industry. She is currently in temporary accommodation and unfortunately had a small fire that started in her oven. The London fire brigade have advised her not to use the oven so she only has a hob for the time being. Having chatted to F she said she would be so grateful for help in this area as finance is very tight at the moment. Thank you for reading this.
