L is disabled and has a memory problem. He has been advised that for his own safety he needs to buy a replacement gas cooker that has a glass lid and an automatic burner cut off when the lid is closed, having had a small fire caused by leaving the cooker on. He cannot afford to buy this due to his limited income and debts. He wants to remain in his own home and with support live independently, however he will need additional safety equipment, including this cooker. Please help - thank you.
