C is a parent who has recently fled from her partner after domestic abuse. Her original mobile phone was broken by her partner and as she is financially challenged she is unable to purchase another. Without the mobile she considers herself very venerable, which in turn makes her anxious about her family. Can we help her get a cheap one so she can feel secure again? Thank you.
This single mother caring for her two school aged children has struggled with sudden job loss at the start of the pandemic leaving her with mounting debts and rising levels of stress and anxiety. A Debt Relief Order would clear her debts and give her the peace of mind and renewed confidence to start rebuilding and reorganising her family life, to look again for new work, whilst enabling her to adjust her family budgeting to the benefits she currently receives, without significant debt repayment demands.
G has not left his flat in over 8 years. He was severely injured and is housebound and uses an electric bed to help give him more movement and to allow him to get in and out easily. The bed has become damaged and the cost to repair it is beyond what he can afford. This help would make the world of difference to him.
This mother has struggled after losing her job at the beginning of the pandemic. She is caring for her four children on her own but her debts have now become overwhelming with debt repayments making it very difficult to provide for her family properly. A Debt Relief Order would help her to clear her debts and give her the peace and stability to start rebuilding her life, looking for work again and budgeting on the benefits she currently receives.
This gentleman’s benefits have been stopped and he won't be paid again for another 6 weeks. During this time he has lost his accommodation due to non payment of rent. He is now sleeping rough. Our charity Warming up the Homeless can assist him for four days with temporary accommodation but he needs one more night's accommodation until his appeal is heard and he can hopefully be housed. The accommodation is very basic.
This lady lost both of her parents last year within 4 months of each other. Her partner has left her and she is alone with a toddler. The local authority have housed her in a flat. She has few resources. They have beds but nothing else that belongs to her, no carpet no clothes storage and no additional furniture. She has been struggling with her mental health and is now on a diagnostic pathway for ADHD. We are requesting £150 to enable her to get carpet/rugs and furniture to store clothing.

This gentleman is the new partner of a lady who has escaped domestic violence with 5 children and they have no savings and low income, so have been unable to afford to insure him to drive. This is creating a huge barrier for them as they have numerous appointments to attend and she is struggling with the pressure of doing it all. She has been diagnosed with kidney stones and is in increasing pain. They cannot afford taxis to the hospital. The funds are to insure him to drive (quoted at £148).
M is a young person who is currently living in supported accommodation and being helped to get her life back on track by her mentor. She has a difficult background and now suffers with mental health problems and the burden of unmanageable debt as a result.

Mrs X has two young children and lives remotely. She is in need of some transport as she doesn't drive and would like to be able to take her children to school more safely than the hour long walk she currently does along a busy country road with no pavements. She has her own bicycle which she could use with the trailer. One of her children has special needs so this transport would be vital to keep them safe on the journey.
This gentleman moved into his own flat after the breakdown of a relationship. He had no furniture. He was donated a single bed but it has a child's mattress on which affects his sleep and he has since been diagnosed with a form of dementia. To enable his sleep to be more comfortable and restful he needs a mattress more suitable for an adult. This would benefit him greatly. Thank you very much.

Since having counselling she is finding both school and home life better, however she is worried about joining Senior school in September and self-harming has developed.

Can we support this child with some further counselling sessions? Thank you.

E is a single parent with two children. The youngest has learning difficulties and medical problems and she therefore receives the higher rate of Disability Living Allowance. E is also on income support and child tax credits. Her washing machine has broken, and there are no spare savings to buy a replacement. She is currently having to isolate whilst awaiting Covid-19 test results and a second hand machine would make her life so much easier.
