Our client has been found street homeless and was referred to us by Bradford Homeless Outreach team. He needs to make an application to the EU settlement scheme and this will have a profound effect on his ability to gain employment and access housing and other services. In order to apply to the scheme he needs to have a valid ID document. Our client needs support to pay for travel from Bradford to an appointment at the Slovakian embassy in London.
A married couple need your help. The husband retired following a serious back accident and a year in hospital. He receives Disability Living Allowance and pension payments. His wife is not working and has poor physical and mental health, she is on medication and receives benefits to look after her husband. The wife received benefits for a number of years when suddenly DWP realised they were not entitled after they became aware of pension payments and now they have a debt of £20,000. They need £150 for the Debt Relief Order fees. They have less than £25 disposable income per month.
H, a lady who is in dispute with the DWP regarding her benefits, needs to pay her water rates bill urgently. Her sister in law has given her £300 and she has £10, so she needs £90 to pay this bill as soon as possible. She suffers from mental health challenges for which she receives medication. She and her partner currently live on handouts from a charity in order to exist and her partner suffers from ill health as well. Please help this lady who is doing her best under difficult circumstances.
Our client is a pensioner and extremely vulnerable. She hadn't realised she had to apply for her pension so when her Employment Seeker's Allowance stopped, she was without money for a few months before she could find someone to help. We sorted her money out but we have come to realise that she has very little in her flat so we are trying to help her where we can. Could you help get her a lightweight hoover as she doesn't have one at all. Many thanks.
D has multiple health problems and has not been able to work since February. It took some time for her Universal Credit claim to go through, there have been constant problems related to it, and her benefits have now been stopped altogether. She is receiving support to try and get this sorted out but is at the end of her tether and has now used up all her savings. She has built up rent arrears and needs to try and make a payment of £150 by the end of the month to ensure her tenancy is secure. She would really appreciate your help.
This young single mum on a low income is in need of three children’s bike helmets. Mum has managed to save and buy bikes for the kids but just cannot afford the helmets as well. The children want to go on bike rides but the amount of traffic where they live is too busy so safety is a big need.
This mum has not received her benefits for the last 2 months. She is really struggling to buy food and pay for gas and electricity. She suffers from seizures and some other health problems including depression. Please would you help her to get through this difficult time? It will help her to take greater care of herself and improve her wellbeing. Thank you.
Can you please help this family with money for carpets for their home? This is a family of 6 (4 children) who have been living in their current property for almost 2 years but have never been able to afford carpet. Only the husband is entitled to benefits, and there is just not enough money to carpet the house. It would be great to be able to bless them with some carpet and make life more comfortable for them all. The church supporting them has a quote for carpets for £200 and will be making up the balance payment themselves.
We are working with a family where the parents have recently separated and dad has moved into his own accommodation. He suffers from poor physical and mental health and struggles with finances. He does not have his benefits sorted out yet and does not have sufficient funds to purchase additional furniture. This storage will give dad a space to store his children’s belongings (they will be visiting him regularly and staying overnight).
