£120 needed for glasses
From Bradford - 47 years old.
N has lived and worked in the UK for 11 years, but has been refused benefits as it was not considered that he showed a 'settled intention' to remain. He is being supported to appeal, but revealed to the support worker that he has poor eyesight and gets really bad headaches. The optician subsequently confirmed that he should have been wearing glasses for 30 years or so. N has no savings to purchase glasses and until the appeal is processed, has no benefits. Glasses would transform his health.
