V is a new immigrant from Spain with 3 children all under 10 years old. She is a single mum and cannot work or access benefits. At the moment she is having to either cook her children's meals in a microwave which is very limiting, or use her friend's home which is very far away and V does not drive. She needs a cooker to be able to cook her food at home.
E is fleeing domestic violence and has nothing for her new flat which is completely empty. We have managed to give her basic furniture but she now requires a fridge freezer to store her food so she can get enough for the week from the food bank. E is single and has no family and has no job at the moment. Please donate to help make her life easier through this difficult time.

This young mum of 3 has had to leave her home because of domestic violence. Her service charges at the refuge have reached £400 and she is struggling to manage her finances. She is also suffering from depression and self harm. £120 towards this £400 arrears would reduce the amount significantly, would allow her to set up a manageable weekly payment plan, and on the way to a fresh start with her children. Any donation would be a real blessing.
E has just moved to the area with her three children. They need a sofa, a bed, and a table and chairs for their new home. Any donation to help this family to buy a basic furniture pack would make a huge difference to them as they start their new life in a different area.
This gentleman was rendered homeless after he became ill and was unable to continue working at the job he had had for 10 years. Unable to pay his rent, he lost his home. For a while he was sofa surfing but eventually ended up on the streets. He was referred to a night shelter this year from where, after 7 months, he was able to move into his flat. He is so excited to have his own place again and has been busy painting it to make it homely. Now he would just love some carpet to finish it off.
This lady's washing machine has broken but she has no spare money to buy a new one. She has a 9 year old daughter and a 12 year old son and is finding it difficult washing their clothes without a washer. She has some mental concentration issues, so a washing machine makes it easier to keep on top of things. She is quite isolated, with no friends or family around to help and struggles to speak English. Money for a new washing machine would make a great difference to her.
P is a single woman living alone and she works part-time at a local hospital. She claims Universal Credit to top-up her low income. It costs her £60 per month to travel to work and she is struggling financially as she is receiving several deductions from benefits. We have contacted Universal Credit to get the deductions reduced but this will take one month. P has multiple health problems but felt forced to return to work to survive and would be grateful for any help you can provide.
K is a single person living alone in rented accommodation, since her parents passed away. She finished work six months ago due to ill health and is currently housebound and receiving regular visits from a mental health team. As K is now claiming Universal Credit, she is on a low income and is struggling to afford to top up her pay-as-you-go gas and electricity meters, especially with the weather getting colder and nights getting darker.
This young couple have a three year old child and have gotten into debt. They are really struggling with bills, and their child wets the bedding every night. This means they are spending money that they don't really have on washing bedding. All of this is affecting their relationship and we just want to help them to take the pressure off. Can you contribute to some of their electricity and gas bills?
C is a single parent with four children. She does all she can to work part-time, but she is still dependent on benefits to enable her and her children to live. The two older children have a school residential which will cost £244 each to attend. C is desperate for her children not to miss out on this experience, but cannot afford the cost. Raising half the amount will go a long way to enabling the children to go with their classmates, as the school have agreed to cover the shortfall. This request is for a contribution towards the cost for her first child.
This young mum of 2 has had to flee her home town because of domestic violence. They have left everything behind and are now living in a refuge. She has one teenager and one junior, and is struggling to pay for their uniforms. Any donation would be a huge help.
C is a single parent with four children. She has a part-time job which enables her to support her children, but only with the bare essentials. Her two older children have a school residential which will cost £244 each to attend. C would love for her children to be able to take part in this trip, but simply cannot afford the cost. Raising half the amount will go a long way towards enabling the children to go with their classmates, as the school have agreed to cover the shortfall. This request is for a contribution towards the cost for her second child.
R is a single-parent living with her 5-year-old daughter in rented accommodation and she claims Universal Credit and Child Benefit. R is spending £100 per month in public travel costs to take her daughter to school, which is leaving her with little money for food and housekeeping. We have helped R apply to a charity for a regular allowance but it can take a month for the application to be processed, so a bus pass will be so useful for the time being.
A had a mental breakdown and stayed in hospital for 7 months. She is living in a supported accommodation but there is no cooker or wardrobe. Our project helped her with a food voucher, but if Acts 435 could help her to settle in to her new living place that would be wonderful. Many thanks.
