My project works with young people who have experienced homelessness and are working towards their own independence. This request is for a young lady who is getting her first tenancy and is hoping to make it a home. We are requesting help with flooring to help her to achieve this aim. She is currently applying for work in social care. I feel that any assistance provided will help to give her a firm base from which to launch herself towards her goals.
The applicant moved into a flat after the breakup of a relationship but both his fridge and washer broke down.

S lives alone and is in receipt of a low income. He is actively seeking work however is finding it difficult due to lack of public transport links in the town where he lives.

Please help this gentleman with a small amount to enable him to store his clothes in his new home neatly.
Our client has an offer of his first independent tenancy following an 8 month period of homelessness. He does not yet have the necessary items to make this sustainable therefore I am making this request to buy household items such as bedding (including duvets, cover and pillows), bath towels, kitchen towels, cutlery, crockery, pans, cooking utensils, microwave and cleaning materials. Any remaining funds will be used to buy small furniture/ electrical items i.e. bedside cabinet, lamp or table.
M has been working with us for a number of years after being released from prison but currently has a lot of debt from unpaid utility bills which she is unable to pay as she is out of work.

Please support her in this journey of helping others break the prison cycle!
