She is moving into an unfurnished flat after living in a Women's Refuge for 3 weeks and they do not have any belongings at all. The family are currently living on a Universal Credit Advance as the claim is being processed so they are unable to provide beds for themselves.

This young woman has recently given birth to her first child. Prior to the birth she fled an abusive relationship and since then she has been living in a mother and baby unit. A parenting assessment has just been carried out so she has now moved into an unfurnished council property.

I hope you can consider helping. Many thanks.
A gentleman has recently lost his father, and he has been struggling financially for a while. He didn't get the chance to say goodbye to his father, and wants to look smart for his funeral.

He would be very grateful for this donation at this moment of struggling and hurt.

N is a gentleman who is unable to work. He needs a new washing machine as his present one has broken down and cannot be mended. He is struggling to take clothes to the launderette and a washing machine of his own would help him significantly. Any help would be appreciated.
B is a young mother whose daughter is almost one year old. She is on Universal Credit which means that her income is very low. B is moving into a council flat with her daughter where there is only a fridge/freezer and a sofa. She has very little in the way of appliances. Buying meals from take away shops is very expensive and not at all as nutritious as home made food. It is really important that B obtains a cooker as soon as possible and any help you can give would be greatly appreciated.
K is a mother of 4 who has just lost her mum. She is on benefits and has a small amount of debt which means she has little spare money. Her washing machine broke 3 months ago and she has been relying upon the help of a neighbour for her washing. Her children are not able to go through the night as yet and so washing mounts up very quickly. Please could you help K to get a new washing machine of her own.
S is a pensioner whose washing machine has broken. She is relying upon neighbours to help with her washing. S is laid up with a bad back at present which is exacerbating her problems. She cannot afford to buy another washing machine herself so any help towards a new one would be appreciated very much.
This client recently moved into an unfurnished property after fleeing a domestic abuse relationship along with her 17 year old. She has anxiety and depression as well as sciatica in her back, all of which are linked to the trauma of severe domestic abuse. The client is on a low income, in receipt of Universal Credit and child benefit and has very little income spare after essential costs. The client cared for her mother for 15 years until her death recently, this has caused her to have a breakdown. Can you help her to get a fridge freezer?
This foodbank client has been a carer for her disabled daughter for 23 years. Her daughter has now moved to 24 hour residential care and this lady has no income until her Universal Credit application is assessed and agreed. She is working with StepChange and needs £90 for a Debt Relief Order. She is 63 and desperate.
This 62 year old woman lives alone in a council property. She has been diagnosed with Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease and often has difficulty breathing. She is also being assessed for learning disabilities. Her white goods are in an appalling state. The fridge freezer is 40 years old and the door is falling off. The others no longer work. A local charity has agreed to supply a washing machine and a tumble dryer. Money for a reconditioned washing machine would really help her.
