G has requested help through the local probation service. He is married with a young son in reception. The family are in desperate need of carpet and it has been discovered that £100 at a local carpet shop would be enough to provide this. Help to give this family a fresh start would be greatly appreciated.
J is a single Mum of 2. Her youngest daughter has learning difficulties and diabetes. In order that she doesn’t need finger blood tests she has a scanner which is permanently in her arm and they use a device to send all the blood results to the doctor. In order to use the scanner she has to have a windows computer. If she does not get one she won’t qualify for the scanner. Because of her learning difficulties any less stress for her is really beneficial.
H is from a Gypsy family but wants to attend college to complete a hairdressing course so that she can get a job. H has recently lost her Nan to cancer, who had been a huge support for her. The costs of the funeral have meant that the family have been unable to purchase the uniform and equipment that H needs at this time.
JC has recently managed to get a property for himself and his 5 year old daughter after spending many months in temporary accommodation. He has no white goods to move in with and needs a fridge freezer to manage his food budget and shopping. He is being supported by the Ancora 'Help through crisis ' project.
I am working with a family in Dudley. Mum has 8 children living at home and is in need of a freezer. She has made huge steps forward and, following a house move, has created a lovely home for her family. A freezer is quite important for her busy family and she would very much appreciate some support in buying what she needs.
K & J both have mental health issues which prevent them from working, and mean that their 3 children have to be in care. They receive the basic level of Universal Credit which just meets their basic needs, and they have no other money to replace their washing machine which has irreparably broken down. Your support in being able to replace this washing machine and help provide some stability in this family would be greatly appreciated.
C needs a cooker as her abusive partner sold her old one when she left him, and she has now been without one for 9 months. She was in a violent relationship with him and has now set up a new home, and it would be wonderful to be able to support her in this fresh start.
Please can I request your help to purchase a bed for a child, whose Mum is leaving the abusive father? They have had to flee the family home with no essentials, and they must now try to start afresh elsewhere. They would be very grateful for your help.
We are working with a family where Mum is due to have her 4th child in mid-September. Dad is serving a fairly lengthy prison term and this has had a huge impact on mum and the children. She has bought a new bed for her daughter but cannot afford the mattress. I would very much appreciate a donation to meet the cost of this and alleviate some of the stress for this mum as her daughter is currently sleeping on the sofa.
This pregnant mum's 4 children have witnessed domestic violence and her partner is currently in prison. He is due to be released early Sept. Mum has found another property and hopes to move there before he is released so that he will not know their address. However, the new property has floorboards throughout and is very dusty. The 6 month old suffers with asthma so Mum is worried about moving before she can put carpets down. She is struggling financially as she is now paying rent on 2 properties, so she would be very grateful for your help.
Dad is a single parent with two boys at primary school. He is receiving benefits which during the school holidays do not cover the basics and he has had to use the foodbank to get food for the boys. He has no money for new school uniforms and shoes, particularly for his eldest son. Your support for this dad would be greatly appreciated.
S has urgent bills that he needs to pay, particularly a water bill which has been passed on to a debt enforcement agency and which is causing considerable stress. He has health problems which prevent him from working and he is in receipt of Universal Credit. Your support in clearing these debts will help S get on an even keel and take pressure off him.
