This is a family of two adults, two boys aged 1 and 3 years, and a baby girl on the way. They have been in temporary emergency accommodation for almost 1 year but have finally got a home of their own. Unfortunately they have very little money (Dad has been trying to get a job but due to Covid-19 has so far been unsuccessful) and the house has no carpets at all and they don’t have a cooker either. Please will you consider donating so they can get at least a second hand cooker and some carpet for at least 1 or 2 rooms. Thank you.
B has been sleeping rough and last week moved into supported accommodation. He's done really well in testing clean of hard drugs when he moved in - he previously tested positive when he last applied for supported accommodation. He would really like a little fridge for his room. It would help him feel at home there and we feel that would give him extra incentive in wanting to remain in his accommodation, engaging with support and staying off the streets.

This older gentleman had been homeless and has now been rehoused. He is on benefits and is trying very hard to make a new start. He had broken his glasses and went to the opticians to mend them but he needed a new pair. They have them now ready at the shop but he cannot afford to pay for them. He hopes to be starting a job next week but without his glasses it would be impossible to work. He is very stressed as he really wants to get into employment again.
This family are expecting a new baby in September. Their mattress has worn out and has several areas of damage. This is causing Dad back pain as he already has an old spinal injury. This family have been through a lot in their country and are starting a new life in the UK. Dad has lost his job due to Covid-19 and they are struggling financially. They have a new baby to look forward to and it would be great to help get them a new mattress to allow them as good a night's sleep as they can get.
