S was working in London through a construction agency, but had to stop when Covid-19 hit. He returned to his flat, but his friends in the industry were scattered across the UK. He struggled with isolation - his mental health deteriorated and his savings were soon swallowed up in living expenses. He applied for Universal Credit and his financial situation reached rock bottom. He contacted Christians Against Poverty and we identified his cooker had stopped working some time ago. He cannot afford to replace it, could you help? Thank you.
N has recently moved into a flat after an extremely chaotic few months. She is just using a microwave at the moment. N has struggled with severe mental health problems for many years, leading to alcohol addiction issues. Since working with Junction 42 she is accessing the correct support and mental health care for the first time, consistently, in her life. She moved into her own flat after leaving an abusive relationship. It's great to see her gaining greater confidence and belief that she can make a new life for herself. Any help to get a cooker would be really appreciated.
