B came to us with his partner who is expecting a baby early next year. When they moved their benefits changed and they no longer had support from a disability worker. Their debts are out of control and whilst we can help with budgeting and support, getting a Debt Relief Order will give them massive relief. They have been left to get on with their lives but at the moment this doesn't seem possible with debts hanging over them.
A father with two children had to sell his home after his marriage failed and he had to quit his job to look after his children. Christians Against Poverty (CAP) have been helping him with his debts, and have also helped him find a new home to rent while the money from the sale is used to clear his debts. But he still needs a few final bits of furniture. This request is for a white wardrobe for his children's clothes as they are currently in black bags and it would be nice to sort this for them before Christmas.
A is a single mum with a disabled child, her washing machine has broken and she cannot afford to purchase a new one. She is having to use a local foodbank at the moment as money is so tight, when she can afford it she uses a local launderette but this is very difficult when she is looking after her son so any help would be really appreciated.
C is married with two children and the family have recently suffered a house fire. They will have to move out of the property for a minimum of 6 months. Although they had buildings insurance they still have to buy clothing and toys etc for their young children so that they can try to keep things as normal as possible. £120 would be gratefully received towards buying toys, clothing and shoes for the children to replace what was lost.
A 25 year old asylum seeking single mum of a 1 year old is trying to manage on the very limited National Asylum Support Service. She receives some help from Meeting Point in Leeds, but we don't have the chest of drawers she needs or the clothing for her son. She has found a used chest of drawers and needs warm clothes for him. Please help her to have what she needs at this stressful time as she awaits the decision on her asylum claim.
S is a single mum who also cares for her sister's two children much of the time. Her sister is also single and often unfit to care for her children responsibly. S takes the children in with no financial support and provides them with a more stable home, food and clothes. She sleeps on the sofa whilst the children share her single bed. We have received an offer of a double mattress and a double duvet. Your help to purchase a base for the mattress would provide some normality in this home.
