J suffered Encephalitis when he was 13, leaving him with severe epilepsy. He was living in temporary accommodation until this week and has been offered his own tenancy. He is worried how he will manage to furnish the flat himself as he claims benefits. J would really benefit from a helping hand financially at this time, having home essentials will make all the difference to how he settles in and manages his tenancy. He would like to put the money towards carpets.
Z is a single male living alone and he has been rehoused in a new town after being evicted from his previous property. As the property was unfurnished, he moved in with no furniture, and we have managed to source a cooker and washing machine for him from two charities, but he still needs a fridge-freezer to store food. Following a road traffic collision Z is unable to work due to his physical disability and claims Universal Credit and Personal Independence Payment.
