This gentleman was homeless for twelve years until he was provided with a flat. He has had help with white goods, painting etc. and has had the flat for two years, but has had no carpets. His flat doesn't look very different to how it was when he first moved in, due to lack of funds. He has been very low in mood and having carpets will make it feel more homely and will lift his spirits. The flat is cold in the winter months and carpets will make a huge difference in keeping his heating bills down.
