Hey

I know in my locality we have a charity called ‘mother share’ and they help kit out basic items for people moving into properties, I think sometimes having fled from domestic violence etc with very little. There maybe something like that in your area if you google or look on Facebook. The only other thing I can think of is to contact your GP practice and ask them if they have a social prescriber. I think this may be a national thing, they help with anything social that could potentially lead to medical issues such as depression. The social prescribers are usually a knowledgeable bunch and know something about everything in the area. If not then maybe citizens advice bureau. Hopefully one of these options will be a starting point.
