Claire wants to start a support group for parents with Autistic children. As a mother of a now grown up Autistic child, she felt she had no support. She wants to change this for others. In order to do this she needs to do some training with the National Autistic Society. She can't afford to pay for this, and it would be a shame for such a good project not to happen.
C has just moved into a new flat and has very little in the way of furniture etc. He is currently on benefits and is finding it difficult to obtain a sofa, crockery etc. We are trying to support him in this new phase of his life.

This lady has struggled on a tiny income for years and when she came to CAP we met in her living room which simply has a concrete floor. She has been buying packs of laminate flooring from B&M when she can afford it and it is creeping across the floor very slowly. Due to her asthma she cannot have carpeting. After years of depriving herself of something as basic as a floor it would be wonderful to bless her with a properly laid floor which will last her and bring her such joy.
C +D are both on benefits with multiple underlying health conditions. C started coming to a local community breakfast recently with D. She had not left the house for a very long time. They have 7 children with 5 under 18 living at home. 2 are in primary school aged 10 and 7. C+ D struggle to meet their basic needs regularly. Their tumble dryer has recently broken making life tougher. Drying their large volume of weekly washing is now very very difficult. £110 requested to replace tumble dryer.
The client has been coming to church for a few weeks and it has been made known that she is currently struggling meeting her monthly bill payments and paying her rent.

The client came to us to use our Foodbank and is in need of support as he has just moved into new accomodation. We have been able to help with various items but he desperately needs a cooker and fridge freezer to enable him to cook and store food. This funding would help us to source the right equipment and also arrange delivery of the items.
The client came to us for advice after finding himself in a lot of debt, he currently has a job but is unable to pay his monthly bills on time. He has recently been harrassed by bailiffs who constantly knock on his door looking for money. This funding would help him to clear his main debt off for good.
The client came in asking about debt advice as he has been trying to manage all of his outgoings and debts over the past few months, he has recently got to the point where they have become overwhelming and he is unable to proeprly manage them now. This funding would pay off a large portion of his debt for the month and give him space to get back on track and arrange a proper budget plan.
The client who came to use one of our projects is in need of help with fixing her car. She currently uses it for her transport to work and because she is in quite a lot of debt she has not been able to fix it yet. The cost of commuting is alot more than if she had her car so this would help her put the finances back into paying off her debt.
Kim is single and living with her 19 year old daughter (full time student) and she is trying to obtain joint custody of her other two children aged 5 and 10. Kim claims Employment and Support Allowance as she suffers from Depression and alcohol problems and she was receiving treatment from a local charity which specialises in addiction problems but has missed appointments as she cannot afford the bus fare to attend. Having a bus pass would enable Kim to attend treatment.
