C is a single mum of 2 children. She has a full time job but is struggling to pay anything but her essential bills. She came to us because of years of debt which she's "burrowed her head in the sand about " following an abusive childhood, depression and anxiety and then her youngest child being diagnosed with autism. She really is at the end of her tether and any help you can give to this hard working caring mum would mean the world to her and her family.
This man was illegally evicted from his home. He is French and is not eligible to apply for benefits in the UK. He has been homeless on and off for a few years. He is now being accommodated by a housing charity. He has no income at all and needs £10 per week to pay towards food and £10 to pay towards energy bills. We have been working with solicitors and he will get some money from the illegal eviction, but needs help while he is waiting for this to be processed.
Needed urgently please. Single young man, just been diagnosed with bipolar disorder, missed his job seekers appointment through needing to sleep with his new medication. The benefits stopped because of this and will not be reinstated until mid August. He is desperate as he has no electricity or money for food. He had his own business but went bankrupt, loosing his fiancee and flat and was made homeless. He has really tried to help himself but illness last straw.
Darren has recently had a major operation and is unable to work while recovering. He is on a zero/8 hours contract at work meaning that some weeks he is only able to work 8 hours. Therefore he is not entitled to sick pay. He has received no income whilst ill. Please help Darren through this difficult time. Thank you.
Ann has profound depression and suffers frequent panic attacks. She's mostly unable to get out of the house and has been relying on her Mum to buy most of her food. Even with help from Citizens Advice, Ann hasn't yet been able to get the full benefits to which she's entitled and is therefore struggling to afford the basic necessities. A donation to help Ann stock up her food cupboard would be extremely helpful while Citizens Advice keep trying to get Ann's benefits resolved.
John has been unable to work for three years due to ill health including back surgery and three mini-strokes. He is trying to improve his general health by eating more healthily but does not have a cooker so is surviving mainly on microwave meals ( not very healthy!)
This lady has her 13-year-old son staying with her for the school holidays but has no money to cover the extra costs. She is battling alcohol addiction and has been dry for 3 months. She has also suffered abuse by a former partner who has left her with debt for bills he said he’d paid. We’d like to top up her gas and electricity and to give her some shopping to help ends meet while awaiting revised benefits money coming through.
