£100 needed for an emergency food and utilities top-up

T's benefits recently got stopped due to a mistake in the system as he transferred to Personal Independence Payment as he has recently overcome cancer. However, this meant that he was without money for over 4 weeks. Additionally, he had taken in his nephew and his partner as they had been homeless, who were also without money due to delays in Universal Credit application. Please give to support these 3 in feeding themselves for a few weeks, including the 2 dogs, and for topping up the utilities.

£120 needed for food and utilities

R is struggling to cope and finds himself under an extreme pressure due his financial situation. He is not long out of hospital after a suicide attempt in January this year. R explained that the reason he wanted to end his life was because he felt ‘the pressure was too high’ and he did not have any relatives or friends to support him financially or emotionally. Your donation would give R a little breathing space while he waits for his benefits to be re-assessed.

£120 needed for food, gas and electricity

J is disabled and has been homeless for the last 5 months. He managed to get a flat around a week ago, but his benefits have been stopped, he is unable to establish why, and he doesn’t know when he can expect his next payment. He has not been able to afford to get credit on the gas and electric in his new flat so has been without power all week, and he has no money for food. He would appreciate help to get him through this very difficult and anxious time while his benefits are sorted out.

£100 needed for gas and electric costs

A has been referred by a local housing charity. He's been sanctioned by Universal Credit and since January has only received £26! He's 62 years of age with a physical health problem as a result of being knocked down last November. He has been receiving food parcels but has nothing to warm up meals and no electric meant he's been unable to logon to his Universal Credit journal and get back on track.
