RA is a refugee from Eritrea who arrived in the UK last month with her 4 children to join her husband. The family have been unable to apply for Universal Credit yet, and are struggling to make ends meet off her husband's pay cheques. They are moving into their new house tomorrow, but it has no furniture at all. They urgently need the basics such as beds and bedding for the children, fridge freezer and cooker so they can buy and cook healthy food on a budget. Any help would be gratefully received
MB and his family have recently arrived as refugees from Pakistan. His wife has just given birth to their 4th child, however the baby has some digestive difficulties and requires medication and special formula which isn't all covered by the NHS. He is struggling to make ends meet and provide for his family and as a result is suffering from anxiety. Any help would be gratefully received.
D is one of our volunteers. He lost his wife, and his sister is bringing up the children with his support. M just left school and was so upset that her Mum wasn't at the leaving assembly. Her Auntie has a caravan she can go to for a break but needs £120 toward getting there. She is struggling and so is D - he needs his own help. This would help her massively and take pressure of D. Thank you!
Sadly PG's ex-wife died and his children have now moved back in with him. He is pleased to have his daughters, but needs help to make his home suitable for the children who are 6 and 8 years old. He would like to buy them new mattresses for their beds as the old ones are in poor condition. Please help if you can- thank you.
SG came to the UK with her child through family reunion to join her husband. She has left her husband recently due to domestic abuse and has been rehoused with her child. However, she is now destitute and unable to claim benefits due to legal matters with the Home Office. As a result, they are struggling to feed themselves and pay bills while she waits to be able to claim benefits. She is now desperate and needs your support to feed her child and pay those outstanding bills.
A mum with an 8 year old daughter has been homeless. She is from Uganda and has finally got a flat. However, the daughter's school is a long way from home and they have had to spend £100 per month on travel costs. They are on Universal Credit and this is making things very difficult. She will have a nearer school in September but until then the family needs help to make ends meet.
G is a mother of 2 young children and married for 20 years, however she is subject to domestic abuse and mental cruelty. G has been advised to leave and move into priority housing with her children. This money would help make the house more comfortable for them by buying her carpet for one of the rooms in the new house. The amount requested would help give the family a new start in a new home.

L is a 21 year old mum of two boys and their father was violent. He is now serving a prison sentence and the family have been moved away from the area where his friends and family live and where he will be expected to return on his release. L is expecting a baby in September and needs a fresh start with baby things as the few things she had were old and have been left behind when she was moved. She has gathered some things together but needs a pram.
SF has paid over £200 in repairs for her sons laptop as it has broken 3 times in the last 2 years. Sadly it is now beyond repair and SF realises that she probably should have replaced it rather than keep having it repaired, but her son uses it for his school work. He is dyslexic and changing the font and colour of the text on the screen helps him to be able to read and understand the work on the computer. Please can you help his Mum towards the cost of a replacement computer? Thank you.
Our Client from our Foodbank needs your help. The Grandparent has just taken on the very necessary legal guardianship of their grandchild who has moved into the household from another area. The grandchild will be starting secondary education this September and they are in real need of a full school uniform, with logos, from a specific supplier, shoes, trainers and PE/Games sportswear. Your generosity will relieve some much-related stress for this newly formed family. Thank you.
Our Client from our Foodbank is in urgent need of a pushchair with a rain hood and some clothing for their one-year-old child. A change in circumstances due to unacceptable behaviour from their spouse meant our Client has had to totally start again in a new area. She has very few resources of her own and mobility with her child is of great importance. Your help will really help the Client and child concerned. Thank you.
