Give to someone in need

Can you help a specific person in need?

S is currently sofa surfing, due to homelessness since fleeing domestic violence. She has been run over by a car and sustained a foot injury which has caused three bouts of infections, and makes walking very difficult. She suffers with mental health and is unemployed. Due to the difficulty in walking, a mobile phone would help to enable S to reach out to the services required for the correct support, and to contact her GP for medical support. Ill health and debt are also at the forefront.

P is a single dad of four children who is receiving benefits and unable to work, as cares for his youngest child who has ongoing health issues. P's phone is very basic and the sound quality is poor. It would be extremely helpful for him to have a smart phone on which he can manage his Universal Credit application and access support via apps, and the internet.
