M is a young man who has recently moved to a new flat in Liversedge with his partner A, who is 6 months pregnant. Following the breakdown of his family, when he was 4, there has been no stability for M, who moved frequently through his teenage years, spending some time in foster care and care homes. Since adulthood he has suffered with mental health issues, as is particularly anxious at the moment, as he and his partner have no money for food or bills, as they wait for universal credit.
R has a partner and four children, one of whom has medical needs due to a heart defect. Their cooker door fell off making it unsafe and unusable. Her benefits have been stopped until July so she has no available funds to buy a new cooker. Please could you help if at all possible. Thank you.
This family are struggling to manage on benefits. Mum struggles with ill health, with fits, blackouts, depression and bipolar. Due to changes in their benefits they have rent arrears and other debts. They are being supported by a number of agencies, but it would make a big difference if we were able to help provide them with a top up for their gas / electric and with some money towards food. It would mean such a lot to them - Thank You.
A is a vulnerable man, who is suffering from several chronic health conditions. He is currently waiting for a PIP appeal, in the meantime he is living on an very low income. He currently has no freezer, meaning he has no way to store good value, frozen food items. With a freezer A would be able to save money on food and also have to go shopping less frequently, relieving stress as Adrian sometimes struggles to get out due to his health. A freezer would be greatly appreciated.
a young couple have recently moved into supported living and currently struggling with finances, we are currently working on finding training, education or employment to help this couple. as these things take time I am applying for a little bit of help too secure some food gas and electric to get over a few weeks until things can look brighter for the couple.
C is a single parent trying to support 2 children, as well as visiting her grandma in hospital. She has been struggling to cope with living expenses after losing her job. She has been offered a new job and is very keen to start, but her DBS check is taking a long time. It is currently very difficult to meet basic living expenses, such as food and travel, as she waits to start her new job.
This lady is a struggling single mother with two children. She works as an agency teaching assistant but work is really intermittent and she finds it almost impossible to keep up with the bills. Consequently, she has rent and other arrears and has had to use Foodbanks to feed the family. Her saucepans and cooking equipment have worn out and she can not afford to replace them. Your donations would be one less worry and improve the family’s quality of life.
Ken has struggled through one winter with a broken boiler having not being able to afford the necessary repair, and we'd love to get him in a better place to cope with next winter. He is working with Christians Against Poverty to sort his finances and is currently on a debt repayment plan. His mental health is very poor and he is unable to work, so money is tight. Some financial help would be a real boost to this lovely client. Thanks for reading.
My client lost her best, and dearest friend a few months ago in a 'pretend' suicide pact that went tragically wrong. Since then my client has been receiving counselling and support to continue with her life. Through this, she has returned to her love of baking, and especially baking for others, finding it therapeutic, distracting, and healing. Unfortunately, her oven is very old and the parts are not available any more so she needs a newer one to be able to be on some path of improvement.
B was working part time and the business took a downturn and she was let go. She has transferred to Universal Credit and is waiting for payment. She is unable to buy electricity and basic food needs. She helps us in our community cafe and is a hard worker. We can supply some short term food needs but B needs to be able to buy electricity and her own things.
Norwich lady, aged 60 is needing financial help due to a number of issues leading to the loss of her home and employment, following domestic abuse over several years. She is being supported to claim welfare benefits but due to the time scale of this process she is needing some temporary financial support to buy food and to pay for her heating costs.
B is a leaving care child and following some bad relationships and depression he'd got into debt. We have supported him through a debt relief order but unfortunately he's been in touch as his winter bill arrived and he hasn't any money to pay it. He is anxious that this may be the slippery slope of his debts getting bad again, inspite of our reassurrance. B has no family to support him - he really has no-one else to ask for help so thank you for providing support and care for this young man.
P is a young adult, having left her mother's custody and fending for herself she has amassed rent debt while waiting for her papers to be approved for financial assistance. She needs help to top up her travel card for job search and some money for food items not available at Foodbank.
