J was self employed but due to Covid-19 he no longer has any work, and he does not have any savings to live on. He has applied for Universal credit but is still waiting for a phone call back. In the meantime he is using the foodbank for himself and his wife, but we would like to be able to support him to get some of his own food in.
A is homeless but has been taken in by his grandparents who are elderly and not well at the moment. He is on a list and waiting to hear from Housing about accommodation but in the meantime would like to buy food to help out while he lives with his grandparents. He is waiting for his Universal Credit payment to come through.
R is a single man with mental health issues who lives in a hostel. His benefits were incorrectly stopped and he now has to wait for five weeks for them to be reinstated. He has nothing to buy food with or to pay for his hostel accommodation. R is an ex-offender who has struggled with addictions in the past. He has become a Christian and attended a Christians Against Poverty course for help with these. Help would be such a blessing to him and also really encourage him on his path to a new life.
