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!
A was released from prison two weeks ago. He has been in and out of jail since he was eighteen and just spent his thirtieth birthday inside. Realising this isn't the life he wants to live, he is determined to turn his life around. He now has stable housing and is working with us to get himself into a paid job, but needs his Right to Work documents in order to start applying for jobs. We have requested everything else he needs, and built a CV, so this is the last piece of the jigsaw that will enable him to move on.

S is twenty seven years of age and has found it hard to progress into long term employment, with progression opportunities, due to his single spent conviction of being drunk and disorderly. This travel ticket will assist him for the first week of a fully paid apprenticeship with a well known Asian food chain, which will see him qualify as a fully trained chef.

D was sofa surfing from the age of twelve. By the age of seventeen, he had earned enough money to have his own flat from dealing drugs . However, his life of crime meant time in prison and when he came out, he came with no ID whatsoever. He needed a Right to Work document so we felt it best to get him a Birth Certificate, for which he was grateful.
