£100 needed for clothes and a hoover

Our client was housed by us shortly before Christmas after his current home was in a bad state of repair and overcrowded. He had returned to stay with relatives after leaving care but this didn't work out and he left with just a bag of clothes. Although we have helped to get the furniture for his house and some household items, he needs help to buy clothes after leaving his last house with only two outfits and also needs some items like a bin, mop etc to keep his house clean.

£130 needed for carpets

P has just moved into a new flat. He has been homeless for a while and has no money or any way to fund getting everything for his new house. He moved in yesterday and the property is very much an empty shell. Having some money to get the bare essentials would really help him to settle in to his new flat. P is grateful he has a roof over his head, but it would restore his dignity massively if he had the essentials which everyone should have access to e.g. carpets.

£130 needed for emergency supplies

O has spent the majority of the lockdown homeless and living in his car. He has been living in the UK for 11 years, but a complex immigration situation has left him legally resident in the UK, but unable to access Universal Credit or housing support, nor able to prove his right to work. While working hard to resolve this situation, O has spent months relying on friends and local charities for food and other handouts, but this has taken a toll on him. Extra financial support is vitally needed so he can afford to buy food, toiletries and phone credit.
