During Covid-19, Mr Newman lost his full-time employment and became reliant on Hackney food bank and therefore, Tanya referred him to LESS. During a phone consultation, Danny expressed he had applied to over 100 job applications and with the rising cost of his energy bills, this started to have an affect his mental health.

Finally, Mr Newman gained full-time employment in November 2020 and contacted LESS to assess his bills again. He had saved £200 on his energy bills and as a result, is no longer dependent on food bank.
