F is a single parent with a 12 year old son. She has been thrown out of her flat as the landlord wanted the property for his family members. F has found a temporary flat, but it is unfurnished and her previous property had the basics supplied. She really needs help to get a replacement kettle, toaster and microwave so she can cook a meal. She isn't due her benefits for another 3 weeks and she has already spent her savings on moving to this new property. Can you help her and her son please?
