£150 needed for house repairs
From York - 61 years old.
F, a single father with two sons, 'lost the plot' 5 years ago, turned to drugs and neglected his family. He's now off drugs, but is a victim of vandalism, and is also working with Social Services to keep his 13 year old son away from criminal gangs. His house needs a lot of work - repairs, cleaning, decorating - and he is getting some help from the Housing Officer, but he doesn't qualify for housing benefit. He needs help to get his house back in order and to give his son a good place to live.
