This 40 year old man recently moved housing association tenancies and both his second hand fridge freezer and electric cooker are neither working nor repairable. He is being treated for epilepsy and depression and relies on the occasional food bank parcel arranged by his support network. A local charity has supplied him with a cooker and he has seen a second hand fridge freezer for £120. Any contribution towards this would be of a great help to him at this time.
This young woman is a lone parent of a three month old child who suffers from a club foot. He wears bars to try and correct the issue and needs a sturdy pushchair which is wide enough at the bottom to accommodate the bars. She is in receipt of benefits and is struggling financially so she cannot afford to purchase one. This is becoming more of an issue as he grows and is heavier to carry, so I am hoping that you may be able to help. Many thanks.
C is a single mother on a low income who is struggling with debt. She has two children requiring shoes and uniform for the new school term in September. She would like to buy these in the school holidays before term starts.
A single Mum with two children aged 10 and 16 have been cooking with a broken oven for sometime now, 3 of the 4 hobs do not work which really limits what they can prepare and cook. We would love to get them a new oven so they can cook healthy nutritious meals with ease.
This 42 year old single man has been diagnosed with chronic depression, recurrent back pain and pain from a previous blood clot. He is awaiting an MRI scan. He is receiving minimum disability benefit and is struggling to cope financially. He is sleeping on a mattress, which is old and uncomfortable, and occasionally in a chair. A single bed would allow him to make up on lost sleep but he can't afford it. £120 for the item would make such a difference to his circumstances.
This is a single young lady who wants to work, but who has been unable to get regular employment. She has had large amounts deducted from her benefits and is struggling to pay her bills. She has rent arrears and has attempted suicide on two occasions. This money should sort out the rent arrears and give her a breathing space until she can find regular employment.
'J' has just been given a flat and needs to furnish it with the basic necessities. She is on a very low income and an electric cooker would help her to start her life in this flat. Any help would be gratefully received.
'J' is a single mother with a family and is on benefits. Her washing machine has broken and cannot be repaired. It would be so helpful to have a new washing machine to help with daily chores. Thank you.
We have a client who's wife is terminally ill and receiving treament in Birmingham hospital which is over 28 miles away. He is having to travel back and forth and also having to stay in accommodation whilst he is over there because of his wifes condition (Very unlikely she will be returning home) Any amount donated will go a long way to ease the financial pressure he is under at the moment. God Bless
This 20 year old woman is about to move into her first independent council tenancy and is due to give birth in a month's time. Her family has helped her with smaller household items, but they are not in a financial position to assist with white goods. She hopes to be able to have some items in place for the arrival of the baby and a local charity has helped her with a gas cooker. She has seen a reconditioned washing machine for £100 and any help with this amount would be greatly appreciated.
This client was referred to us by her housing officer seeking assistance towards two single beds for her daughters. Her eldest daughter is sleeping on a bed that is broken and her younger daughter has outgrown her cot. She is in receipt of income support, she also has some debt and finds it difficult to manage her daily living and these debts. She is therefore unable to afford to buy these essential items herself and really wants to provide a secure environment for her daughters to sleep safely.
Joy is an asylum seeker with two children, aged 2 and 4 and another baby due next month. She is accommodated with her children in a shared house. Her fridge has is not working properly which has made it difficult to keep food from spoiling for her and her children. A new fridge would make a huge difference to their well being, especially with a new baby due imminently.
