S lives with her husband and seven children. Her husband has been diagnosed with kidney failure and is no longer able to work. The household income has been reduced significantly and, until the available benefits have been sorted out, they are unable to pay for clothing for the children.
You have helped this family to continue to earn wages with 2 other requests for car repairs and tyres. S's wife is trying very hard to continue to work but has health issues and more recently has has a very poor back. Since the children returned to school they have both outgrown their uniforms and shoes. The family are concerned that the children will be bullied at school because their uniforms are too small and faded and their shoes have holes. Please can you help?
C is 50 years old and has a 13 year old son. Her husband left because of the stress of losing his job and excessive debts; she is now the sole earner and supporter for the family. She works full-time as a carer and is struggling to make ends meet; we have needed to give her a foodbank voucher. A Tesco voucher would enable her to buy clothes and shoes for her son, who has outgrown what he has currently, as well as some additional food.
We are supporting a 50 year old man who is currently homeless and sleeping in a church. He is struggling with his mental health and has no access to any income to cover basic expenses. While we try to resolve some of the root causes, it would be great if he was enabled to buy some new clothes, buy basic toiletries and be able to pay for his bus fares to access essential health and legal services.
S is a single parent of four children. She has come to the Foodbank as she is struggling with fuel bills and buying her weekly shopping. She is on Universal Credit and the money does not stretch very far. S would like to take her 12 year old shopping for clothes and shoes, but cannot afford to do so. Her daughter is growing and does not have many clothes which fit. It would be such a blessing to this family if we could help with clothes shopping.
S is a single parent with two children. She is working, but also paying debts and caring for her sister who is disabled. S is working with Christians Against Poverty for debt help and is beginning to see a future without the financial stress she is currently experiencing. Her two children really need new school shoes and trainers. S would only buy these from a supermarket, but still does not have the extra money to afford them currently. She has been using a food bank for support with food costs. Thank you.
This request is for a family who are on a low income and are very much living week by week. They can usually manage bills but they don’t always have enough money. Their two young boys are desperate for clothes and they currently cannot afford to purchase any. Some help towards the boys clothing would be wonderful.
This lady in our supported accommodation suffers with severe mental health issues, and has come with only two sets of clothes. She is currently washing her clothes regularly to keep clean, and is in desperate need to purchase more clothes. She would like to volunteer but feels shame not to have change of clothes. Volunteering will really build her self-esteem and confidence, and in the long term improve her mental health and enable to live independently.
Our client is living on basic benefits, and has recently found a home after being homeless for a while. He is struggling with his fuel cost on his limited income, and he is also in need of clothing after being homeless. He would appreciate any help you might be able to provide.
This lady is 65 years old and has her three grand daughters staying with her temporarily, but the three grand daughters do not have sufficient clothing. We have agreed to purchase One For All Vouchers to cover the cost of these clothes and would very much appreciate help towards them.
S suffers from psychosis, depression, hormonal imbalance, partial blindness and deafness. She has also had Covid which has greatly worsened her hearing. She has three children, one of whom suffers from severe eczema and needs special clothing and bedsheets. S needs to washes her daughter's clothes and bedsheets frequently because they get so greasy. It would be of great help to her if she could get some more clothes and bedsheets, as those she has are quickly wearing out.

M had to flee her abusive partner with her 4 month old premature baby and the clothes on her back. They have no access to public funds and are couch surfing with friends. They have been asked to move on soon. M has now contacted welfare and housing advise organisations and is hoping to turn her situation around. She is receiving support from other charities with special items for her premature baby. Can you please help this mum buy a change of clothes, shoes and personal items like toiletries?
