This 31 year old asylum seeker from Eritrea has requested financial help to buy a new mobile phone, as he lost his old phone. He attends Open Doors charity in Hull and receives an allowance of £37 a week for all his living expenses but is not permitted to seek employment to supplement his allowance.

R had been living in a fully furnished property for around five years when the Local Authority and Fire Brigade condemned the building. He and the other tenants were given one hour to collect personal items and leave their homes. Since then he had been moved to various types of temporary accommodation, as well as sofa surfing with friends, before securing a new property. This new property is unfurnished and R needs a cooker so that he can cook and eat healthily.

A was homeless and lived in a hostel until permanent accommodation was found for him shortly before Christmas. He has had help to get much of what he needs for his new home, but doesn’t have a vacuum cleaner. His flat is nicely carpeted and he would like to be able to look after it properly. He would also benefit from some kitchen utensils as he really enjoys cooking but doesn’t have the things he needs. He is really struggling to make ends meet at the moment and help with the cost of these items would be much appreciated.

I am the manager of the Christians Against Poverty Bradford Central debt centre and I have a client who is a single Mum with three children. She is the victim of relationship breakdown and is really trying very hard to stick to her plan to become debt free. She has bare boards in her kitchen and dining room and it would be great to get her some floor covering.

J is a middle aged man who has recently been medically retired from his employment. This has made his multiple debts impossible to pay off, and everything has become too much to cope with. When I spoke to him, he was so grateful that people were willing to give money to those in need. He really needs the fresh start that a Debt Relief Order will bring. Please can you help?

L suffers with very poor mental health and was homeless, living mostly in a hostel, until she was offered a flat a few months ago. She was just getting onto an even keel when her benefits were cut, and the financial difficulty this has created is causing renewed anxiety and worry. She has built up debt on her gas and electricity accounts and has run out of money for food this month. It is over 3 weeks to her next benefits payment and help to get her energy back in credit and buy food would be a huge relief for her.
K has been without income since November when she split up with her partner and was told her benefits needed to be re-assessed. She still doesn't know when she is going to receive anything and is only managing to survive with the help of family and friends. Her cooker is broken, and in her present circumstances there is no way that she can find the money to replace it. She would love to be able to cook properly for herself again. Help to buy a new cooker would mean a lot and would be a glimmer of light for her at a very bleak time.
