T has been working really well with Christians Against Poverty for debt help for three years now. She is on a very tight budget, but is managing to pay off her debts. She has also stopped drinking in the last year and is looking so much better. Her whole quality of life has improved. She does need some new clothes however and would appreciate a gift towards clothing.
K is a Service user at Refugee Action York. She is a single Mum to 2 young children having fled domestic violence.

NB came to us after being made homeless. He has struggled with his weight for a long while, but he is now making headway and has lost a lot of weight in the last few months by exercising and eating healthy food. This is great of course but means that none of his clothes fit him anymore, and he does not have the extra funds to pay for new ones. He would be very grateful for some money towards a few new tops and trousers that fit him well.
This single lady is destitute because her asylum case has been refused. She has no form of financial/ housing support from the Home Office. She is living with one of her friends who has very basic things. She is requesting your support for daily essentials such as food and clothes.
