No carpets, curtains, cooker or white goods. This request is to cover carpets for as much of the flat as is possible. This most important parts will be covered first, bedroom and living room.

A gentleman in Middlesbrough who has a brain injury is moving to a new ground floor adapted property for a fresh start, now that he is receiving support. He also has physical disabilities and would be so grateful if Acts 435 could help him.
"A" has suffered domestic abuse and is in a refuge. The benefits have stopped due to a review of this situation. Because of this there is no money for rent and so may be evicted if the rent is not paid as soon as possible. There is loss of hope and despair. Please will you help in this very difficult situation.
A has very severe dyslexia, unfortunately a group of people took advantage of this and sold him a property with negative equity. He lost all his savings, which he had built up over several years of hard work and a modest lifestyle. A has a low paid job and works very hard, but cannot afford a bankruptcy as he is supporting his children who live abroad. A donation towards this fee would enable him to have a fresh start.
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.
Fiona is working with Christians Against Poverty to sort her debts and they have recommended bankruptcy as her way forward. For this a fee of £680 is required, and Helen has started saving the money needed. It would be great to help her with this sum, and any donations would be gratefully received. Thank you

We are supporting a Mum and her young son who have recently been rehoused after a serious incident with her ex-partner. They have had to leave lots of their belongings behind but Mum is really down as there is no carpet in the house. She is particularly anxious to sort her son’s room as priority and make it homely for him.
Help is requested for A who has recently moved into her own rented flat, furnished only with a bed. Having no savings and living only on benefits, she is seeking a grant to equip her apartment with various kitchen items. During the last year, she has lived in several different 'safe houses' having suffered abuse from within her family.
This family moved to the North East to find cheaper housing and closer proximity to hospitals for both their daughters aged 13 &14yrs who require ongoing medical support. They have engaged well with their family worker and now, after several weeks, they have been given a place in the local secondary school. The family is on a very low income and are unable to afford the regulation items of blazers, PE kits and ties. It will really help these girls settle in if they have the correct uniform.
A young man in Middlesbrough has just moved into his own property with the local authority, he has very poor mental health and is on basic benefits Would Acts 435 be able to help him to purchase a washing machine and a fridge please? This is a fresh start for the young man.

I was heartbroken to hear the story of a couple who describe themselves as 'white refugees.' W and G are UK citizens who have recently returned to the UK after living in South Africa. They had to leave because there was no employment and they simply couldn't survive. They are living with W's brother in Cornwall; it is a difficult situation because the brother is self employed and not getting much work. They are desperate for money just to live and their benefits will take 3 months to come.
I was contacted by a nurse from the Family Nurse Partnership to see if we could help her client. C spent a year in a local Women's Centre and has recently been placed in semi supported accommodation. There is a mattress in the property but it is filthy and she would really like to buy a replacement before her baby arrives in June. C is in receipt of Income Support and cannot afford to help herself. Would you be able to make a donation and help this young pregnant woman?
S moved to York following a break up with her children's father. She was given council accommodation but it needs many things to make it a home. Some items have been donated by other charities but the floors in the house are bare and this grant request is to help towards carpets and floor-covering. Although S has rheumatoid arthritis she was working before the move and is looking for employment. Leaving his father has had an adverse effect on her son and we are trying to help her with that also.
L is a single parent of 2 teenage sons. She worked hard setting up her own business, which was successful, but due to the financial climate has failed. She has found work but is now in debt. She had to have an accountant to wind up her business. Can you please help her clear this bill and give her peace of mind?
C has just had a relationship breakdown and had to find alternative accommodation. He has successfully found some shared housing but has only the clothes he stands in. His new job hasn't properly started so he won't be receiving any pay wages yet. He needs a bed & mattress.
