The applicant has recently been given asylum after having to flee their own country after suffering torture for being a Christian. They now have to raise a deposit as well as a month's rent in advance in order to move into a place of their own. They currently volunteer at their church almost daily and is a joy to know.
E has had no cooker since hers was condemned 6 months ago. She has been using a camping kitchen with two gas burners trying to feed a family of 6 in relays. She will be able to get a new cooker which can be installed for this amount, she could not afford the outlay herself due to trying to sort out her debt. She is working with CAP and hopes she will be able to get a cooker in time for Christmas. Thank you.
My client has multiple health conditions and has had to move into a new more suitable home. There was a cross-over in tenancies leaving her with a small amount owing for council tax on her old property. As she is on benefits and struggling with the change to Universal Credit, it would be really helpful if we could raise the funds for this debt to be paid off. Any contributions would be much appreciate to alleviate the stress it is causing my client. Many thanks.
Debts arose when the applicant moved into a flat and later found that the landlord had not read the gas and electric meters. The first he knew of this was when he received bills for approx. £3,500. He could not avoid paying this and whilst working, paid about £600 off. However, he was ill and had to go into hospital and lost his job. He went to Citizens Advice who recommended a Debt Relief Order but he needs the fee for this. As he must have an operation he cannot look for work yet, so he would be very grateful for your help.

My client is engaging really well with our service, but having his own phone would enable him to get in touch with me when he is having a bad day with regards to his mental health and for me to get in touch to advise of appointments.
This client has just been housed with us following years of street homelessness, sofa surfing and living in a caravan. He has been awarded a grant for household items but unfortunately only has one set of clothes that are extremely worn. This money would enable him to do a supervised spend around some charity shops with his support worker and complete his new home life.
K is in need of funds for a winter coat, shoes and wellingtons for her growing teenager. She has recently come out of hospital after emergency surgery and the result of this is that she will not be able to work for at least 6 weeks which means that she will not be receiving the money she would normally expect. She was working part time and will struggle financially due to the universal credit changes.
A gentleman, previously homeless, has moved from a fully furnished home into an unfurnished property through no fault of his own, but due to his previous landlord requesting the property back. Our client has no bed, sofa or white goods. Please can you help?
C has been unable to work due to ill health and she has had to apply for benefits. She had to make a new claim for benefits recently and apply for Universal credit, when she made the application she then had to wait a month to receive the payment. As a result she has incurred rent arrears and she is becoming worried that her landlord will take legal action against her.
This lady has physical and mental health issues. She worries about providing healthy well cooked meals for her children instead of junk food. They just about manage on her benefits for normal living costs but when her cooker broke she was unable to replace it and had to rely on just a microwave. Family members used to visit for Sunday lunch each week but this is not now possible. A cooker would enable her to regain self worth as well as being able to cook meals for them all.
My client is living in supported living, he was moved due to a risk from others and is currently in need for gas electric and food due to this to make him able to live in his new property. My client was referred to our organisation as a care leaver and was homeless after needing to leave supported lodgings. Any help would be much appreciated.
The applicant was managing financially when her sister and two nieces moved in to escape a violent relationship. She was already caring for her brother with Asperger's. Her bills went up and the children damaged her TV, fridge and furniture. She borrowed money, causing interest to mount up. Her sister's family now have their own home but she still has the debts to pay off. She consulted Citizens Advice who recommended a Debt Relief Order, however she needs help with the fee for this.
J has had to spend majority of her income on transport as a close relative is at the hospital in critical condition. Also, the local authority have not agreed to pay her son's transport fees to school this term yet. She's been living on low income for a number of weeks and was referred to foodbank for help with food last week. Recently, her fridge stopped working and she's unable to replace it. With your generous donations, we hope to be able to replace this for her in time for Christmas.
