Mr C has recently moved house and had to give 4 weeks’ notice on his current property. Therefore, he had to cover the full rent himself on the new social housing property for 4 weeks as Universal Credit will only pay for one property. He needed to move to this supported housing association's property, as it is better suited to his health conditions. He has ankylosis spondylitis and arthralgia of the knee. With all these costs he is unable to afford to purchase a fridge freezer for his new property, and would be grateful for your help.
Miss M has recently moved from a larger property where she was subject to the spare room subsidy. She successfully bid on a smaller property and has moved everything over but she has no funding for carpets which is causing an issue. Miss M is a vulnerable adult who is receiving support to sort all her bills out and debts. She has done really well moving with her limited funds but she has exhausted all available money. She has been quoted £120 for a carpet to be supplied and fitted.
This client has had to relocate from Wales to Greater Manchester due to a relationship breakdown with her partner and experiencing violence from him. She is living with her 1 year old son. Children in Need have provided him with a cot and mattress and we are awaiting a response from the local authority in regards to a grant for carpet. We have helped with white goods for the client, but she doesn't have a bed and mattress for herself and she would really appreciate your help.

L is a single-parent living with her 2-year-old daughter in rented accommodation and she claims Universal Credit and Child Benefit. L's daughter is currently being assessed for speech and language and she is due to start nursery, and L needs help purchasing new clothes for her daughter. L had to finish work to look after her daughter and she has been referred to our money advice team for debt advice as she has several debts, and doesn't have enough income coming in to cover expenses.
Christians Against Poverty are supporting this family on a debt repayment plan. They are nearly 2 years into the plan on their way to becoming debt free, and they have made numerous sacrifices to regularly pay in. They have just had a new baby, which has meant a reduction in income and they want to pay as much of their debts as well. We are looking to bless them with some help for the new baby. They need clothes, nappies, wipes, and other such baby items. Thank you so much.
M is a single-parent with two daughters aged 12 and 14 and she has been unemployed for the long-term due to mental health problems as a result of an abusive relationship. Due to the financial difficulties caused, M had to go bankrupt and she is currently claiming Universal Credit and disability benefits. St. Helen's Council has cut the funding for school uniforms so M would appreciate any help you can provide in raising this large expense.
P is a single-parent living with her two daughters in rented accommodation. She works part-time as a carer and claims Tax Credits to top-up her low income. P is currently receiving debt advice from Citizens Advice as she has fallen behind with her rent and council tax bill and needs to prioritise payments to them to avoid enforcement action, so she is struggling to purchase a school uniform for her daughter.
P is an aspiring student, though she has had her educational journey in the past cut short through health issues. She is currently experiencing hardship through various debts which have spiralled out of control. A debt relief order would regain control and a sense of normality in P's life and enable her to reapply for further education and get back on track to self improvement.
G is a single person who is living with severe mental health issues. In 2018 G had a severe mental breakdown which resulted in her being made homeless and accruing a considerable amount of debt. She has since sought help for her mental health and has been re-homed. The debts she accrued have become an issue since she was re-homed with several of her creditors taking enforcement action. We have reviewed her options and a Debt Relief Order is the best solution, however she is unable to afford the fee.

This family of four have been transferred to universal credit, and hit by the subsequent delay in receiving their first payment, after sudden illness. L has always worked but she is now struggling now to make ends meet. She is being supported by the church and also the police, as she was stabbed and badly hurt while protecting her mother from angry neighbours. She has spent a lot of time off work because of this and suffers from panic attacks, but is now back in work even if only a few hours a week. She would be very grateful for your help with her gas and electric bill at this difficult time.
This client has been living in her current rented accommodation for 25 years now and has never really had any issues, however a new owner has taken over. The client came to us after living with black mould in her property for 6 months, which has started to have an adverse affect on her health. The landlord refused to do anything and the council can't help. This funding would pay for a damp course and a repaint in her living room and help her get back to good health.
This client has been living in our supported accommodation for the last few months, and has been making massive steps towards independence. Now his last step before he has his own place is attending detox for the next few months. The client is in need of support with funding to help him get to the new accommodation as well as paying for some of his belongings to get moved there as well. This funding would help him make that next big step into getting his life back on track.
The client came after finding himself in significant debt with the council tax department. He had been in touch with them for a few months prior to leaving his home and tried to set up a new account. When he left they failed to cancel his bill and start the new bill from his property. The council tax was higher in his new property but he did not realise until 6 months later when he received the bill. He is struggling financially and this would help pay off the debt and help him move on.
The client had been living in our supported accommodation for the past 12 months. After working with us with various issues and moving forward into independence, the client has now moved on to his new accommodation. He is in need of funding to help him with the deposit and first months bills. This funding would enable him to secure the property and ensure he has a good start with his new place.
The client has been a volunteer with our projects for the last few years and is also responsible for helping her elderly neighbours with washing and drying clothes. She lives on a retired accommodation site and volunteers to help her neighbours who need that level of support do all their washing. Unfortunately the washing machine and dryer were recently stolen and she has been unable to carry on helping. The funding would buy a new dryer and enable her to continue helping her elderly neighbours.
Ms K has seven children - she is lucky enough to have 2 sets of twins but this has meant that she has had to give up work. The wait for Universal Credit has meant that she has got into debt and is struggling to feed her family and pay bills.
