R is working well with Christians Against Poverty to sort out his finances. He has been offered the opportunity to go on a 3 day CAP Discovery break for which there is no charge. However R is disabled and can only go if a full time carer goes with him and he has been told he must pay her wages himself. Help towards this will enable him to accept this opportunity to take a well deserved break.

M has chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, rheumatoid arthritis and is having tests for suspected cancer. She is on employment and support allowance and a low total income. The grant is to buy a sofa for her flat. £120 would get M a second hand one from a local shop. She has an armchair but has nowhere to offer her son or brother to sit when they visit. Family support is vital and it is important to M that she can spend time comfortably with them.
This severely disabled man, on benefits and struggling with bills, can only go outside in his electric wheelchair with someone. He has lost his confidence outside so is bed-bound. His wife looks after him and their children, with help of carers. A lightweight camera would give him reason to be outside and follow his love of nature and hopefully help him with his confidence. It would really make a difference to his quality of life.
Single mum lives with her 2 children aged 6 years and 1 year. She has been living in the property for a while which has a very thin basic carpet in the living room. The carpet is ripped and has no underlay laid down. The youngest son has delayed development and needs to spend a lot of time on the floor to ensure he has opportunities to further encourage his physical development, money for a new carpet would ensure the living room is a positive environment for the whole family.
