This client is a young single mum aged 19 years old on benefits who has just been given a home. It is her first home and she is in need of a fridge freezer. This will help her with the cost of cooking and storing her baby’s food but she cannot afford to buy one herself. Can you help?
This young family are asylum seekers from Switzerland who have just got permanent residence. They are waiting on their Universal Credit to come through and have managed to get almost everything they need except for a couple of items, and one is a washing machine. They have no family or friends to turn to and the language is a barrier. This is a fresh start for them.
This young family of four from Switzerland have just got a private rented house, they have managed to get most of the items they need except a couple of things including a fridge freezer. They desperately need this as they are awaiting Universal Credit and the little money they have does not cover having to buy food from the shop everyday.
This 69 year old single lady lived with family for many years before finding her own property. She is waiting for a very small state pension to come through, and she has applied for pension credit and housing benefit but this is not guaranteed. Until all of this comes through she has no money and her family are doing the best to support her. She is a vulnerable pensioner. Her new home has no carpets and the flooring is cold. Any money towards the carpets would be really helpful.

This lady has been working with Christians Against Poverty for over a year to become debt free. Her circumstances have changed for the worse and she is now eligible for a Debt Relief Order which would enable her to become debt free quicker.

We are supporting an older Mum who lives alone with her 5 year old son and has no washing machine. The little boy is on the pathway for ADHD and has challenging behaviour. Mum has suffered from previous domestic abuse and has severe anxiety. Having no washing machine is causing her a great deal of extra work and is time consuming. The family have few resources and this added stress means she is struggling to manage. Please can we help the family by enabling them to get a washing machine. Many Thanks.

This Mum has 3 young children and has little support. Mum's eldest child is 8 years old and has autism, he has challenging behaviour and cannot be left alone. At present Mum is struggling to keep the children safe as she has no stair gates so cannot leave the younger children in a room safely, or her son, as he has no awareness of danger. Mum has little resources and for safety reasons would find the stair gates really helpful. Many thanks.
This client is a young mother working full time on a low wage. She is in desperate need of a cooker as hers has broken, she can raise part of the money towards one but not all of it. It would cost more money to get it fixed than it would to buy a new one. This is causing her a lot of stress as eating properly is so important to her. She will not go into debt for an oven as this would bring a lot of hardship which she does not want.
This Mum is parent to 5 children aged between 3 and 10 years old. Mum lives with her partner who is Dad to her 3 year old twins. Mum has a 6 year old son who is on the autistic spectrum and her 5 year old son has been through a very difficult time. Mum suffers with poor mental health and anxiety due to a previous domestically violent relationship and struggles with the demands of a young family.

J is a single father who is currently jobless. His tumble dryer and TV are broken and his only income is from Universal Credit. He is being helped with food from the Fareshare Food Bank at East Oldham Methodist church. Could you help him to replace these items?

These two girls are homeless, and have been living in the same homeless accommodation together. They have no extra money, but they desperately need new trainers. They already have second hand clothes so it would be lovely to give them some brand new shoes. Can you help them?
This client was made homeless after she managed to escape a relationship where she suffered domestic violence. She has just been given a flat, but she needs to pay the first two weeks' rent in order to secure the flat and move in. She cannot afford this, so can you help her to have a fresh start in life?
This young lady is a single parent moving into her first home with her baby. She is on benefits and doesn’t have a washing machine. She doesn't have any spare money at the moment, so could you help her? A washing machine would make this stressful time a little easier for them.
R has 3 children, two with severe disabilities. One son requires constant care and is going into part-time residential care. Their house is not carpeted and carpets are needed to make the house more comfortable for the whole family. The family is being supported by the Keyring charity which helps vulnerable people cope with independent living.
This young man came out of temporary accommodation and into his own flat some weeks ago. However since then, because of errors and delays in the benefit system he has been without money. The lack of furniture and more importantly cooking equipment has affected his health and he has felt very alone. A microwave would mean he could easily provide hot food for himself. His circumstances mean he is not allowed to work, but as a qualified painter and decorator he is keen to use his skills to help others voluntarily.
This young man came out of temporary accommodation some weeks ago and into his own flat. However, since then he has had no money because of errors and delays in the benefit system. He has had no furniture, his health has suffered and he has felt very lonely. We have posted a second request for help to buy him a microwave, but also needs a fridge freezer so he can store food and make warm meals. His circumstances mean he is not allowed to work, but as a qualified painter and decorator he is keen to use his skills to help others voluntarily.
C is a single mother with two dependent children. She suffers severely with her mental health and requires support to engage with others and to leave home, as she currently will not leave home unaided. She is in arrears with multiple creditors and the threats from the bailiffs and collection agents are severely exacerbating her mental condition. Any assistance you would be willing to offer would greatly improve C's mental health and allow her a fresh start and to focus on dealing with her mental health.
This Dad of 4 young children is currently in the process of moving into new accommodation. They have no flooring or carpets fitted. He has to find all items to furnish and equip their new home. Dad is working and is just about managing to make ends meet. Helping this family to lay flooring/carpets will be such a blessing to them during this stressful time.
T is single mother of 3 children under the age of 8 and is in receipt of benefits. The children's father is not helping her out and has not been for some time. She is struggling with some debt and trying to manage on her income from benefits. She was given a second-hand cooker about a year ago but that is now smoking and not safe to use. She doesn't have enough money to buy another one. She is managing using a chip pan and a microwave but is concerned that she is not able to make healthy meals for her children.
