The tenant who came to us in need of accomodation, who we where able to house is now in need of funding to help pay for some clothes and a new haircut and shave. He came with absolutely no belongings and is in desprate need of fuinding to buy clothes so he has something more than just what he is wearing. Any support would be massively appreciated.
Ben's been struggling with alcohol use for some years. He's now getting the support he's needed for so long and things may be improving. He feels ready to try for a job but has only the clothes he stands up in and this would make a bad impression at an interview. Ben would like to try charity shops for a jacket, trousers and a shirt but he needs serviceable shoes and new underwear as well. £100 would help kit Ben out decently and he'd be very grateful for the help.
This family have 3 children and manage on a very low income as the father is on minimum wage and a zero hours contract. The mother, Nela, has lost her zero hours job.They have recently opened their home to Nela's sister and her 4 children who have been evicted because they were found to have been using drugs. This family will be rehoused if they stay off drugs which they appear to be doing with help and support from Nela and a drug worker. 2 of the children need shoes fairly urgently.
Applicant, who is on job seekers allowance, and is unlikely to be able to leave it, needs new footwear to allow him to continue acting fully as handyman and gardener at St Hildas Church. He works hard as a valued member of the church, and has grown in faith since he started coming here about a year ago. This has helped him cope with life issues also. He needs a strong pair of shoes particularly for gardening, and a smarter pair for general matters.
