This single mum of three young children had to flee domestic violence during her pregnancy and is now receiving support. Her belongings are still in another town and in order to be rehoused she needs to empty her old residence and cancel the tenancy. She has been ill so will need help to do this and also somewhere to store her belongings safely while all this goes though the system. She could rent a garage but cannot afford to. Your help would mean so much and give her some peace of mind.
This family have a child due to start secondary school and are desperately worried about the high costs of the uniform required. The family have faced difficulties over the last couple of years as father has suffered serious illness and although he has recovered he has since been made redundant due to the pandemic. They are currently relying on benefits whilst looking for work and have had to use their local foodbank. They are already struggling to meet day to day costs and the added costs of a uniform is a worry. Can you help them?
We are supporting this person to apply for Personal Independence Payment. He is currently in receipt of Universal Credit. This has deductions at source to pay council tax and rent arrears which were incurred due to benefit delays following the loss of the gentleman's job due to ill health. After deductions, he struggles to meet his needs on the money left available to him. The sum requested would help reduce the debt owing, reducing the person's stress which impacts on his health. Thank you.
L is a single mum who suffers from PTSD and struggles with anxiety when leaving her home. She currently has a small fridge with freezer box but consequently has to shop every 2-3 days as she is unable to store more. The fridge is also not maintaining the correct temperature. It would make a massive difference to have a bigger fridge/freezer. £150 should enable L to buy a reconditioned one.
N has just come out of a very violent marriage, in which the ex-partner before he left smashed all the furniture in every room of the house and ruined the carpets by bodily means, meaning they had to be thrown away on health grounds. She then found out that in the damage he had broken the radiator which caused a slow leak and that then damaged the flooring boards which the council have replaced, but she has no carpet in the bedroom used by her son. She is slowly rebuilding their lives. Can you help her to get some more carpet?
D and his brother have recently moved house following the death of their father whom they lived with, the circumstances around their father's death has caused D to have ongoing anxiety. D has some health issues which are limiting his mobility at present. They moved flat at short notice and brought little with them. They had been sleeping on blow up beds for a couple of weeks, we have supplied most of the furniture they require. They would be very grateful for a cooker so they can cook again.
This lady has had a hugely difficult few months. She had to be rehoused following a period of serious mental health problems which resulted in significant debts and benefit delays. She is now working with the local church's debt advice team and receiving appropriate benefits but her outstanding bills and rent leave her no money to replace her old fridge/freezer. She feels everything has gone wrong for her over the last year and having no way to keep her food fresh seems like the last straw.
This young woman had a troubled childhood, struggled with drug addiction, and spent time in prison. She is now working hard to rebuild her life and is thrilled to have been offered a flat - her first ever home of her own. She is trying hard to find employment but her criminal record is not making this an easy task. She is currently just about managing on Universal Credit but cannot afford to buy anything new. She is so grateful for offers of help and would hugely appreciate your support. Thank you.
