£130 needed for food, energy costs and a smartphone

D has 2 young children and recently moved into her own flat after spending time living in a women’s refuge. Her benefits are being changed to Universal Credit and the delay in receiving her first payment has meant that she has run out of money. She would appreciate help with food and energy costs but she is also in need of a smartphone as she currently has no internet access and is unable to monitor her Universal Credit account. If she cannot access her account on-line this could lead to further delays in payment and further hardship.

£150 needed for a living room carpet

In June 2020 this lady was struck down with peripheral nerve disease affecting her mobility and causing almost constant pain. She was housebound in the flat she shared with her partner. The relationship has broken down, so she has moved into an assisted living facility. The flat is bare and she has no income due to benefit delays. Her sister is helping with food and household items, but cannot afford a fitted living room carpet, which would make such a difference to her comfort in the flat.
