G is struggling to make ends meet after losing his stable, long term job, due to a severe mental health crisis which was triggered by his marriage breaking down. He is struggling to come to terms with not being able to live with, or provide for, his three children. His benefits do not cover even his basic costs of living. G can see some hope in the long term, now that he has been brave enough to reach out for help, but still needs some practical support in the shorter term to maintain this positivity. Please can you help him to pay for his gas bill so that he can cook and have hot water?
