Young female who has lived in supported housing for 3 years is now moving into her own rented property. She has no kitchen items, and is in need of a cooker, microwave, fridge and kitchen essentials. This money will go towards this. This is a fresh start for her and would be great to see her set up well after working her way out of debt with our help.
C and her partner and young child are really struggling financially and living in an unfit, privately rented property, with heating costing a fortune. They have just been issued a Section 21 notice to leave the property so have come in for advice on housing options. They are also expecting twins which has further added to their issues. At present they are renting a washing machine and ideally we would like to be able to purchase one for them.
This is our 1st request of 2 on behalf of K. K is having support from Christians Against Poverty and is likely, to be shortly undergoing insolvency process. K has long term health conditions which are increasingly debilitating her and she is now partially sighted. We would like to replace her rented fridge/ freezer which is due to be collected, with a purchased one, ideally of the same dimensions to assist her poor sight. This amount will significantly help with the purchase and give her peace of mind for the foreseeable future.
This is our 2nd request on behalf of K. K has been working through a debt repayment plan with Christians Against Poverty for some time and is living on a tight budget. She has long term health conditions and her sight is failing significantly. We are trying to replace her current rented TV with the purchase of a second hand one with a screen of adequate size for her needs. A suitable set has been found and reserved for her. We hope to raise the further balance needed via a local grant. Can we help secure this purchase?
A lady who has to be rehoused due to divorce has no money for removals or mail redirection and would greatly appreciate a surprise gift towards her moving costs. She has very low income and is unable to make ends meet and feed herself properly even before moving costs. Any gift would be a great blessing to her. Currently, her partner is 'borrowing' the work van between jobs but money for a small van hire would solve this problem.
W is a lovely lady who fled a domestic violence relationship following an assault in 2016. She left with two young children and had to start again. Her partner had stopped her working to make her dependent on him, so she got into debt. She is now working well with Christians Against Poverty. The lock on her front door has broken and needs repairing urgently to keep her home secure. She is especially worried that her ex partner's restraining order finishes in March.
A really lovely family at their wits end. Catastrophic health issues caused the loss of a job and their transport. They desperately need to buy new clothes and shoes for their fast growing family. They have so many needs but this would make such a difference to them.
Please would you help this lady and her family. They are struggling to pay bills especially a gas bill. She receives Universal credit benefits but finds it difficult to make the money last for a month partly because of bank charges due to an overdraft. They are beginning to work with Christians Against Poverty to reduce the debt but need help in the meantime. Please would you help them with a donation? Thank you.

C is a lovely lady who has been through a very difficult time. She was in a controlling relationship. Her dad died, and then she had her third child. After the birth she became ill with a condition paralysing her in one arm. Her relationship broke down, leaving her with three children and unable to work due to illness. She was unable to cope and her debts spiralled. She is now working with Christians Against Poverty. A debt relief order would wipe her debt and allow her to start fresh
This young lady is just 14 and is in need of a new mattress and if possible a new bed frame due to her current one needing renewal. She is moving house with her family and making a fresh start and will need a new bed as her other one is no longer suitable.
A&M are a lovely couple working with Christians Against Poverty. They both got into debt as a result of difficult circumstances, especially A who was struggling as a single mum. They are working really hard to stick to an incredibly tight budget. They have a baby on the way and are struggling to cope with a broken cooker. Can you help us to provide this and lift the burden of worry for this couple?
