Miss M lives with 8 year old daughter and is getting Universal Credit. She was moved due to an emergency as there were concerns for her safety. She was witness against a suspect that is due in court. She has been able to get most necessities but she is struggling for wardrobes and drawers. These items will help her make a home and to start again.
C suffers from agoraphobia, anxiety and depression. She hardly leaves her home. She relies on her adult son to help her with shopping, etc. C claims Employment and Support Allowance and has put in a claim for Personal Independence Payment but has not yet heard anything. Her fridge/freezer has totally broken which meant that she had to throw out all her frozen food. She is now living on canned and dried food. This is bad for her budget and for her diet. She is quite a vulnerable lady.
Miss C is 4 years old and is now sleeping in a child's bed. She has an old bed were the bed base and the springs are broken. This is unsafe for the child. The local council has been approached who do not help with broken beds. The child will need a good night's sleep to aid her development in life. She is sharing a bed with her mother and this is also broken.
Miss C is single parent and has a son aged two. Unfortunately she lives in a property with no radiators only small heaters which would cost a lot to keep on to dry clothes. Her tumble dryer has broken and now she has no easy way to dry clothes. Miss C is in receipt of benefits and wouldn't have the income to purchase a new dryer for a long time. With a small child in the house the amount of washing is high, can you please help?
S is a single mother living in rented accommodation, currently claiming Employment & Support Allowance, Personal Independence Payment, Child Tax Credits and Child Benefit. S suffers from multiple physical health problems especially with her back.

This has been recommended by her GP but she is unable to afford this on her own and needs some help. Thank You.

This family of three were referred to me by their social worker. Fleeing domestic violence, the family have nothing except what they had on when they left as they had to leave quickly. They have moved to a new location many miles from family and friends, and they have been staying in a safe house. They have very little income as they are waiting for benefits to be sorted out. Please could you help to buy them a fridge freezer as well as some pots and pans?

J lives in Lancaster and needs £120 to buy school clothes for her 6 year old son who attends a local school. She separated from her partner after domestic violence and he refuses to help with money. This will probably be sorted out in the long term, but she needs money now because the boy has outgrown his previous clothes, including shoes. She lives on Universal Credit and has no savings. Please can you help with the £120 needed? Thanks.

F is on univesal credit and her husband has health problems which don't allow him to be very mobile. They have twins aged 10. The family are currently sitting on an old mattress in the living room as they have no furniture. The house they live in is not in great condition and they're sharing 1 bedroom between the 4 of them. The children currently have nowhere to play games and do their homework on. A coffee table and a sofa set would give the family comfort and bring some normalcy to the home

V is an assylum seeker with no recourse to public funds. She has underlying traumas she's faced which have led to her having to fled her country of origin. Since she arrived she has struggled to get registered with health providers such as dentists due to lack of support and language barriers. V currently relies on the foodbank for the provision of her foods, which held as regular due to lack of funding. V desperately needs a dental procedure to stop the pain and transport and food supplement.
P has recently been rehoused after being homeless and living in a hostel with children. Although very grateful to finally have a permanent place of residence, she is struggling to furnish it as she's currently unemployed and awaiting for her benefits. The house is completely empty and even needs flooring but P has chosen to prioritize getting it furnished first so her children have somewhere to sit and have meals on. Step by step with the support offered she hopes to make the house a home.
P and her children currently use duvets and sleeping bags to sleep on which were donated when she left the hostel. P would appreciate 2 double bedsshe would share with her chidlren giving them a comfortable dignified good night sleep. Considering the home hasn't got any flooring, they are prone to catching colds sleeping on the floor on duvets and sleeping bags. Being able to get these 2 beds and kettle would mean so much to the family. They will also be able to use hotwater bottles.
Family of 6 recently moved home due to overcrowding. Finding money for basics in house been difficult. They struggle financially as Dad is unable to work due to serious mental health issues made worse in Covid. They have been able to carpet one child's bedroom but are unable to find the finances for the others. The floors are unsafe and need covering for warmth as well. This family have been supported for a long time with us and are engaging really well, would love to bless them with a carpet!
As a single mum struggling with her 3 children P has prioritised the health and wellbeing of her children before anything else. The final thing she would request in order to make her home suitable for living is a fridge freezer and microwave. This is the most cost effective and accessible route she sees reachable to enable her to provide her family with the basic necessities. Having a place to sleep, eat and pray together would bring tremendous balance to her constantly shifting life.

After breakdown of relationships in her family, M has had to leave the home that she has been living in and since then has been living in temporary accommodation in a hostel. She now has been given the keys to a flat, but until it can be furnished and made ready she is having to make the journey on public transport between the two locations. This is costly and is currently being paid for on credit card which will lead to a later debt to be paid. She would be very grateful for your help to buy a washer/ dryer for her new flat. Thank you.
