This client is a self-employed painter so he has been unable to work since March due to the pandemic. He has 4 young children and a partner so he is now claiming Universal Credit. His eldest child is in need of a new bed as the base is broken and the mattress is very uncomfortable. He cannot afford to purchase one from his limited benefit income, so I am hoping that you may be able to help. Many thanks.
A single mum of two asked for a food bag at the weekend and admitted she was in debt. Her job went during the first lockdown and she fell into rent arrears. Yesterday she was given the threat of eviction, however she also had a positive job interview. With the aid of Wirral Debt Advice and our Church accessing two other charitable donations, plus this requested £150, we could pay off a lump sum to the Housing Association and set up a manageable arrangement on the arrears balance to avoid the family's eviction.

This middle aged gentleman has been referred to the charity. He has recently moved into sheltered housing and is feeling very isolated, largely as a result of the pandemic. He has requested a laptop so he can join a community group, which is currently meeting online. In addition, it is hoped that this social contact will help him gain confidence to use the device for online learning and to help him gain qualifications. It will also make budgeting easier, and allow him to make video calls.

This client has recently fled a severe and violent domestic abuse situation which she endured for over 17 years. She has been supported into an unfurnished tenancy and is being supported to make a new life, however she has no belongings and is on a low income (she receives Universal Credit) so cannot afford to buy the basics. Lack of resources and access to charity shops due to Covid-19 means that she is struggling to afford to buy a fridge/freezer.
