This single Mum of two is having her benefits changed over to Universal Credit, but will have to wait 4 weeks for her first payment. She is accessing the foodbank to help her through, but only has £6 left on her energy gas card. She would be very grateful for your help in the interim.
A has recently arrived in the UK to join her husband after fleeing Eritrea. As she has not yet received her National Insurance number, the couple have not received benefits for a month and are now in arrears with rent. We are looking for support to cover the cost of 2 weekly shops before they receive their benefits in early May.
This single mother is in debt as she is trying to live on very low benefits. She had to choose between heating and paying all the rent. She also had to rely on the Foodbank for food. She chose heating her home as the weather turned cold but then went into rent arrears. Her benefits are being reviewed but for now she needs to pay off her rent to stop her from being evicted.
The client came to us in need of support after having his benefits stopped for no reason. This has left him with unpaid bills, and struggling to pay for gas, electric and weekly food costs which has left him depressed. He has been in touch with his local councillor who is doing everything they can to help, however in the meantime he needs some support to avoid going into debt and to enable him to purchase food and pay general living expenses.
A is getting help from Christians Against Poverty to sort out his debts. Whilst we are dealing with the main ones he has a small amount of debt on his prepaid gas meter which means whenever he puts some money on it is used up by the debt almost straight away. This has caused him to just stop putting money on his meter and therefore not heating his flat. We would like to raise enough to cover the debt which is £34 and then put some credit on his meter to get him ahead.
This lady has very poor health; she struggles to keep warm and suffers from very low moods, but she is always smiling even when she is in pain. She is on a very low income and struggles to make ends meet. Friends help when they can, but she would be very grateful for your help to top up her gas and electric.
This man has been made homeless and he is temporarily living with his brother. He looks after his 9 year old daughter during the holidays. He has no money for food or living expenses as he is waiting for Universal Credit payments. Please would you help him at this difficult time. Thank you.
This man is struggling to make ends meet. He has a large credit card debt so most of his benefits are taken up by paying the interest. He has little money to pay for food and living expenses. He also has some some health issues. Please would you help him with money for food and bills? Thank you.
This couple had their grown up son living with them, but he has now left them taking money and food with him. They have to wait 4 weeks for their next universal credit payment. We have given them some food from the foodbank but they are struggling to buy more and pay bills. A donation from Acts 435 would help them greatly and be very much appreciated. Thank you.
