This young couple had been sofa surfing for around two years before they contacted Housing Solutions. Their living situation had contributed to mental health issues and they were struggling to survive. I met with them to show them a property, which they accepted. They have been given lots of items from the community, family, friends and charity, but are struggling to buy curtains and blinds to give them privacy and security. They have also got behind with their gas and electric bills. Please can you help them? Thank you!
Still £150 left to donateTotal needed £150
Our client is currently living in temporary accommodation with partner and children aged three years old and eighteen months. A conflict with neighbours threatening to burn their family home has; unfortunately, put them in this situation. Terrified, they have had to flee, and have left their possessions behind. As a charity, we have helped with a food parcel, but would further like to help with enabling them to get some gas and electric on at the property.
