£100 needed for food and heating
From Brighton and Hove - 56 years old.
N has suffered a serious back injury and has been unable to work for several months. His savings have now been spent and his current only income is Universal Credit, whilst he awaits a decision on whether he qualifies for Personal Independence Payment. He is now in arrears with his Council Tax and fears that they will soon be deducting this from his benefits, causing yet more anxiety and stress over his weekly bills. In the medium term, a grant to help with food, and the increased costs in heating, would be gratefully received.
