This young mum is doing very well adjusting to life with her 5 month old baby. With help from volunteers she has moved to a new house and is creating a loving and happy home. Now the sun has appeared she would like to be able to spend time, with the baby, in her garden. To do this she needs to be able to maintain the space. We have separately requested help to purchase a lawn mower for her, but she will also need a lockable storage unit in which to store the equipment and keep it safe.
We are supporting a family where Mum and Dad are both struggling with physical and mental health problems. They have a busy home with 3 young children and a teenage nephew living with them! Due to their physical limitations, they sometimes find it hard to keep on top of their home conditions. At the moment they are working really hard to rectify this but are struggling to afford the costs involved in cleaning and refurbishing their kitchen. We'd like to help raise £120 to buy them a new fridge.
We would like to raise £120 to help this family redecorate their house. Their 10 year old daughter has a life limiting illness and her condition is deteriorating. A couple of their friends are helping them to redecorate their house; it is in real need of updating as they have not been able to focus on anything other than caring for their daughter.
This 40 year old man has severe mental health problems, including depression and mood swings. He has not worked for 17 years and is on a disability benefit. He lives alone in a Housing Association property. He struggles to manage on a low income and his cooker only has one hob working. A local charity has agreed to provide a new cooker, but his bed is broken and he needs a replacement. £120 to buy one from a local supplier would be of enormous help to him.
This young man has been homeless for many months but has just secured an unfurnished council tenancy. He is in receipt of Universal Credit but this barely covers his essential outgoings so he is struggling to purchase the essential items that he needs for his new home. I would be grateful if you could, therefore, consider providing him with a donation for a bed. Many thanks.
This single mother of two children works as a cleaner in a school for which she receives a low wage topped up by tax credits. Her problems with debt began when she lived with her ex partner who was an alcoholic. He accrued debt in her name, failed to pay bills and could not keep a job. If she questioned him about this he would hit her. She finally left him but cannot repay the debt, which is causing her extreme anxiety. A debt relief order would help her start afresh but she cannot afford the fee.
