O lives in Lancaster and needs £120 for supported housing over the Christmas period. After a bad accident at work in 2011 he suffered severe anxiety and depression and an alcohol addiction. He receives Universal Credit, and a Discretionary Housing payment has partially met his needs, but this ends next month. He has a place in supported housing with therapy, but needs £120 to pay the rent over the Christmas period, after which he expects to be housed by the Council. Can you help him with the £120 he needs?
