L is socially isolated and has no family support near the area in which she is living. Her historic mental and physical conditions are only exacerbated by her inability to leave her property to carry out necessary and essential trips. The replacing of her scooter batteries, due to the originals being depleted to the point of no return, would allow her independence, freedom, her own right to go shopping, take her dog for a walk, attend medical appointments etc.
K has cancer for the second time after fourteen years of being clear, cannot sleep very well and is on chemotherapy. Her mattress is digging into her back, where she has developed more lumps due to her cancer spreading. Please can you provide for a mattress to ease some of the pressure?
This lady is a single mother to her adult daughter, both of whom suffer from severe complex mental health needs. Due to not having a cooker, both mother and daughter are only able to eat food that has been cooked with boiling water poured onto it, such as pot noodles. They had been living in appalling living conditions and and have now moved into better accommodation, but are desperate to eat nutritious meals. They would be very grateful for your assistance. Thank you.
This lady has moved to our area after fleeing domestic violence from her ex partner. She has three children aged nine, six and nine weeks old. The lady has moved to a house which has no carpets. She is living on Universal Credit and, due to the increase in gas, electric, and fuel for her car to take the children to school, is unable to save any money to purchase a lounge carpet. She is concerned about the baby not being able to crawl about in a few months.
This gentleman is really struggling financially. He is waiting to go into rehabilitation and this may take several weeks so he is trying to stay inside to stop the temptation of the drugs, and is doing really well. He doesn't have a working fridge, as it has stopped working, and he cannot afford to replace it. This means that he is needing to go out each day for food, or come to the Foodbank when he has no money. Please can you help this man to buy a fridge? Thank you.
C has recently had his children back to stay with him several times a week. His washing machine has broken and it is unable to be repaired. He is currently looking to get back into work which will fit around childcare. Any help would be hugely appreciated. Thank you!
This lady has already been helped by you very kind people, she is just so very very grateful and cries when she talks about the support she has been given. She has very poor health and had to give up work due to this. Her oven broke 2 weeks ago and she has been eating ready meals which she has to go out for every day (due to having no fridge) and they are expensive. She is awaiting an interview re incapacity to work. I suggested a table top cooker as this is cheaper. Thank you
