A is recovering from domestic violence, which left her with debts she cannot afford to repay. Could you help her and her children have a fresh start without this history holding them back?
A married couple need your help. The husband retired following a serious back accident and a year in hospital. He receives Disability Living Allowance and pension payments. His wife is not working and has poor physical and mental health, she is on medication and receives benefits to look after her husband. The wife received benefits for a number of years when suddenly DWP realised they were not entitled after they became aware of pension payments and now they have a debt of £20,000. They need £150 for the Debt Relief Order fees. They have less than £25 disposable income per month.
D is a lovely young lady working with Christians Against Poverty. She was with her ex-partner for 7 years - he was violent and controlling. He took out loans in D's name which she has not been able to pay back, so her debts have spiraled from there. The debts have contributed to her poor mental health. D has a seven year old daughter and she would love to be able to give her occasional treats. Can you help with a Debt Relief Order so D can get her and her daughter's life back on track?
G has been street homeless for a number of years and secured tenancy on his current property in November, he has now managed to furnish the property but still has no cooker. This means he is having to commute each day to the soup kitchen. It would be great to be able to buy him a cooker so he can be more independent.
T was homeless and has been provided accommodation with no cooking facilities. He is in need of a cooker in order to prepare food. He receives benefits, but is unable to save enough money to purchase this item. The provision of this would really help him to eat well and at an affordable cost. Any help you could give towards a cooker would be very much appreciated. Many thanks.
This 6 year old boy with ADHD was very upset when his treasured bike was stolen from their back garden. He is the only one of his large family without a bike. It is their main form of transport. His mum has no spare money to buy him one. It is his birthday next week and it would be lovely if he could have a bike for his birthday. Please would you help his mum to get one for him? Thank you.
R has bi-polar which means she struggles to hold down a job for long and was unable to cope with budgeting when moving constantly between work and Universal Credit. With our help she is now in receipt of disability benefits and is clear about her budget so should be able to remain out of debt. We would like to apply for a Debt Relief Order which would lift a huge weight off her.
This single mum of two children has had to flee from the area because of incidents with her ex-partner. She is living on benefits and has large debts so is struggling to meet the costs of moving home. Please would you help her to make a fresh start so that the family can settle into their new home and life? Thank you.
This mum has not received her benefits for the last 2 months. She is really struggling to buy food and pay for gas and electricity. She suffers from seizures and some other health problems including depression. Please would you help her to get through this difficult time? It will help her to take greater care of herself and improve her wellbeing. Thank you.
Miss H is a single lady who was referred to us; she is in the process of moving from a shared, fully furnished house to her own place, completely unfurnished. We are requesting support for her to get a second hand bedframe, toaster, kettle, cups, plates and cutlery to help set her up. The move is causing a great deal of anxiety and any help we can give to alleviate this would be so appreciated.
M struggles on her own with two children, one of whom is autistic. Her kitchen flooring is coming up and proving to be very dangerous with the children. As she is unable to afford this outlay herself we are hoping to be able to help her with this request.
K and P have been in their new accommodation for just a few months. They were both working part time whilst trying to get their home together. K has now lost her job and they're struggling and all hope of getting some carpet down on the concrete floor has gone. Please can you help us to purchase some carpeting?
C experienced an abusive childhood and was later in relationships where she suffered from domestic violence. Since being alone she has become very isolated and struggles to manage physically and financially. C is now disabled and housebound, suffering from chronic health conditions including a painful back. She has a bed frame but no mattress and has been sleeping on her sofa for the last 2 years. This has exacerbated her back condition. Please can you help to buy her a mattress?
D is due to have her baby in the next three weeks and has been turned down for a baby grant to get the last bits and pieces she needs for the baby in the way of clothes, changing mats and other accessories. She does not have any family to support her and it starting to get very stressed and anxious about the baby having nothing to wear when she is born, and no way of making sure she can care for her. This is not helping the baby. Any help would be amazing and would really give them both peace.
A man that we are supporting has been released from prison with no paperwork from probation, and he suffers with mental health issues. With your support, we would like to help him through into the next stage by supporting him with clothes, food and 3 nights accommodation to keep him from sleeping on the streets. He is open to our guidance and support so we are hopeful he will be successful.
Probation has not filled in the right paperwork for this man so he has nowhere to go. With your support we would like to support him with food, clothing and temporary accommodation so we can keep him off the streets. He is a very kind and caring man and is very grateful for our help and support and we are confident he will be successful in the next stage of his journey. We will provide a fresh starter pack once permanent accommodation has been found.
I has been job searching for 6 months but has not found work. He is also trying to repay debts and is struggling to make ends meet. He has been a self employed handyman and wants to do this again but needs to repair his van to make this possible. He so wants to support himself doing a job he is good at and this would also give him the satisfaction of providing a quality service for his clients. A gift of £150 so he can repair his van would make all of the difference to him being able to begin to do that again.
This household of 8 are having to move to a new home for emergency reasons. They survive on benefits so have no spare money to pay for van hire and other costs incurred when moving house. They would really appreciate some help. Please would you help them to make this necessary move? Thank you.
