R had been living in a fully furnished property for around five years when the Local Authority and Fire Brigade condemned the building. He and the other tenants were given one hour to collect personal items and leave their homes. Since then he had been moved to various types of temporary accommodation, as well as sofa surfing with friends, before securing a new property. This new property is unfurnished and R needs a cooker so that he can cook and eat healthily.

A was homeless and lived in a hostel until permanent accommodation was found for him shortly before Christmas. He has had help to get much of what he needs for his new home, but doesn’t have a vacuum cleaner. His flat is nicely carpeted and he would like to be able to look after it properly. He would also benefit from some kitchen utensils as he really enjoys cooking but doesn’t have the things he needs. He is really struggling to make ends meet at the moment and help with the cost of these items would be much appreciated.
