G has been relocated to Derby from London and housed by Action Housing in a studio flat with just a kettle in the entire flat. He is on benefits so having to furnish a new flat is very difficult. We have approached local providers for help with furniture and furnishings and have managed to get many items for him but cannot source a cooker and he has no money to buy one. Please could you help?
