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.
Leanne is a lovely lady working with Christians Against Poverty.She got into debt when her marriage broke down and she was left to manage her money on her own. The stress of debt mounted and she became unwell. Her job then moved to Kent and she sent six months doing a four hour round commute, which has exhausted her and she has become very mentally unwell. She has been caught in a spiral of debt and poor health. A donation to insolvency fees would help her to break this. 3rd request.
Keith is a lovely young man working with Christians Against Poverty. Keith was abused as a child and six years ago was involved in a court case to convict the perpetrator. Going through this was too much for him - it brought everything to the fore, he took an overdose and the case was dropped. Keith has struggled with mental health ever since and has got into debt as a result. A donation to his insolvency fees will be a huge message of blessing to Keith and allow him to make a fresh start.

Our client is having to move from a furnished flat to an unfurnished flat and has very little furniture and no spare funds to buy any. She is unable to work due to illness and relies purely on benefits. We would love to be able to help buy a bed, sofa and fridge freezer and any other furniture such as wardrobes and drawers. She will receive a small grant from the local authority, but this will not cover all the items needed, Please could you help make a difference here.
M.M, 32 years had a brain injury in 2004. Had been on Employment Support Allowance (ESA), changed to Job Seekers Allowance (JSA). With the recent medical review, his condition had worsened and JobCentre plus closed his JSA to open a new ESA. Now he is without financial support, sustained on ambient Foodbank stuff. He needs help to get fresh food for balanced nutrition and offset some of his bills as well as transport money for hospital check-ups and visit to keep him connected in support groups.
Jack has a damaged spine following two accidents. He's on job seekers allowance but can't get work and has been refused employment and support allowance. Consequently, his income is in a poor way and he is currently sleeping on a futon which gives no support to his back. Sleep is difficult and it doesn't help his overall health. A firm mattress to go on top of the futon, would be a real boon for Jack and he hopes that the money can be found to help him.
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.
Miss S is 26 years old and lives on her own; and is struggling to pay her bills, rent and food. She suffers with EUPD - Emotionally unstable personality disorder and suffers chronic suicidal thoughts. Miss S feels that if she finds employment her mood will improve, but is still struggling to find the hours needed. Citizens Advice are helping her manage her debts and bills; but she is in desperate need for food and electric. Any donations will help Miss S. Thank you.
Couple and teenage daughter have been working their way out of debt with CAP. Mum has been through a year of cancer treatment and is currently unable to work. Dad had a serious brain injury as a young man and has been able to work since the late 80's/early 90’s). However he has recently been assessed as fit for work and so PIP (Personal Independence Payments), Carers Allowance & council tax support have been stopped. The teenage daughter also has special needs.
S is a young man who struggles with mental health problems. Due to being homeless for a while and now being given accommodation, he has nothing apart from the clothes he stands in. He needs a bed.
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.
S has 3 children, is a nurse but had to take time off work through mental stress. Statutory Sick Pay and lack of Tax Credits mean that she has not been able to afford gas & electricity.
