This young lady is being counselled at the moment for depression and child abuse, which was physical, emotional and sexual. In addition she has suffered severe neglect in her past. Through these sessions she is starting to gain her confidence, self-worth and esteem. Her thoughts of suicide and self-harm have also been reduced. Your help to continue her wellbeing would be appreciated.
This lady's counselling is helping her get through discovering her husband of 17 years was leading a double life. Her depression, anxiety and suicidal thoughts are still being addressed. She is finding the sessions with her counsellor very beneficial, so I trust we can help her to continue with them.
This client has been housed with us after becoming homeless due to a fire in her property, this meant she lost most of her items including clothes. We have supported her to find a house and get items for her house, but she is struggling to afford to live independently and replace items she lost.
My client has been housed with us for a few months, previously to that she was struggling with mental health issues and was hospitalised due to these. Because of this, her child was looked after by someone else. Since then she has progressed a lot and now has her child a few days in the week and is looking to have them overnight with the aim of them coming home permanently. She is looking for help to decorate and furnish her child's bedroom in this house, as she is unable to do this on her income at the minute.

This young person is a looked after child in County Durham and came to us from 24 hour supported. Struggling with mental health and wanting to be closer to his Mother, he moved into our supported property. He has gone from strength to strength and rebuilt his relationship and learned basic daily living skills and managed his tenancy well. This money would enable him to move on to social housing, again close to his family, for his next steps to independent living. Thank you.
A lovely single Mum of 3 young children is in need of some counselling sessions. She fled an abusive relationship and is struggling with anxiety and the trauma she experienced. The counselling would enable her to process her past and help her move forward and grow in confidence.
We are working with a family in Dudley where mum would very much benefit from counselling. She has been subjected to physical abuse in her marriage and has had to make the decision to permanently separate from her husband. She wants to be able to have some closure on some of the issues from her past and improve her parenting. Counselling via Vital Connexions will help her to move forward.

Friends are helping her to get some items for the baby but she is worrying about how to pay for bills and living expenses. Please would you help this lady to pay some bills and prepare for the new baby. Thank you.
K is a lovely lady working with Christians Against Poverty. She has struggled with a drug addiction for a long time, as well as domestic violence, moving in and out of different refuges without a steady home and having her child taken into care. She is now working really hard to get things on track, she is on an addiction recovery program, and has a new home lined up. She is working with social care to have her son live with her again. A Debt Relief Order would help her have a fresh start.
B has been sleeping rough and last week moved into supported accommodation. He's done really well in testing clean of hard drugs when he moved in - he previously tested positive when he last applied for supported accommodation. He would really like a little fridge for his room. It would help him feel at home there and we feel that would give him extra incentive in wanting to remain in his accommodation, engaging with support and staying off the streets.
K is a young Mum with a 5 week old daughter who has just left a domestic violence refuge to move into her first flat. She was attacked again 3 weeks ago by the perpetrator after he was released from prison and is struggling with benefits delay to fund items for her daughter. She has the basics in place but nothing for her daughter going forward, we are supporting where we can but your help would provide bedding, help with a buggy, sterilising equipment and some of the essentials a new mum will need.
We have a client through Christians Against Poverty who is having to raise their own Debt Relief Order fee. This will take several months, dragging on their stress of financial issues longer than needed. A Debt Relief Order is relatively small amount and this will give our clients a clean break and fresh start. One of them struggles with mental health and anxiety and the added pressure from creditors has left her housebound and unable to work. The process is at its final stage, so financing this is the last step to debt freedom.
A young mum with a baby has fled domestic violence and is moving to a new area of Middlesbrough. The lady now has mental health problems due to the abuse and is on medication and working with services for support. She needs to pay the rent arrears off before she can move, so please can Acts 435 donors help her?
This young man was homeless and living on the streets before moving into temporary accommodation; now with support he is to move into his own tenancy and this is a completely fresh start for him. The young man has physical and mental health problems. He has no furniture for the new flat, and we would like to ask the donors of Acts 435 to help him with this please.
This request is for a young Ethiopian guy with refugee status. He has been studying English with us for 4 months. He recently asked if it would be possible to source a bike for him as he lives in a shared room and is in need of getting out. Unfortunately the projects that would normally help in London are not receiving new applications for refugees so I am hoping to partly fund the bike through this channel. Thank you very much.
This young mother has a three year old child. Sadly they have just fled from domestic violence to a safe place. She was not able to bring her phone with her and feels very vulnerable without any form of support. A telephone is needed for doctor and clinic appointments as well as counselling support. She is feeling afraid and lost, so please will you help her?
We are working with a mum who had to leave her home very quickly and move to another area of the country with her toddler. We need to arrange for some of her possessions to be transported to her. I would appreciate a donation of £150 towards the cost of a van in order to complete this removal work.
Mr R is under 25 so is receiving reduced Universal Credit. He has been struggling to pay his rent and shortfall. He is receiving help with the arrears he has accrued. Mr R is desperate for a washing machine. He has one that is leaking which cannot repaired. He initially was living with his partner and child, but the partner left him to pay rent and look after the child on his own.
A young man who is rough sleeping has had his tent damaged by a group of young people. He feels very exposed to the elements as well as worried for further possible attacks on him and his belongings. With the help of volunteers at the foodbank he was shown a tent online which would suit his needs being small enough to carry but strong enough to give him shelter again. He is a lovely chap and well known for dropping into the foodbank for a quick chat when he can.
Mr G was working and living in a hotel but he had to give this up and go into rehab for alcohol addiction. He completed rehab and has moved into a new property. He has very little money left at the end of the week so saving for a washing machine would not be an option. He would probably only be given credit on somewhere with very high interest, which could put his new tenancy in jeopardy as he would struggle to pay it back. He has been kindly gifted a cooker by a homeless charity.
A mum who is working really hard with her social worker and solicitor is trying to achieve their requirements to be considered for her baby to be returned. Part of this requirement is to attend Alcohol Support meetings daily. She also needs to wear a SCRAM bracelet. We are requesting £150 to pay for 4 weeks of bus passes to attend the meetings and also some money to contribute to new trousers as her current ones will not fit over the SCRAM.
A Dad to 7 children has been turning their new house into a home. The children are aged 6 months, up to 16 years old. The blinds in the children's bedrooms need replacing. Would you be able to help to fund towards replacing the broken blinds? It would make a huge difference to the younger children, particularly with the sun rising earlier at this time of year.
A Mum and her 4 year old daughter have been living in temporary accommodation and are preparing to move to a new house. They have very little to move with them. Would you be able to help fund these items that they urgently need: a kettle, a toaster, a microwave, and a high backed chair, as mum has curvature of the spine and is in lot pain. Thank you.
S has had a difficult time as her partner has been on long term sick from work due to mental health problems. This has caused debts to pile up and she hasn't known where to turn. We have been supporting from the foodbank and have now taken them on as debt clients. A Debt Relief Order will make a world of difference to their mental well being.
Mr C has been homeless for years. He has been given a new property with an armchair and a bed. He has no funds to get bedding and kitchen basics such as utensils, baking trays etc. He is learning how to budget, but funds to help him start a new life would make a difference. He has made a claim for Universal Credit which will help with rent and food.
This client has to move back to the local area and was homeless. Although we housed him, he has struggled to get furniture and housing items for his property after being told he was not entitled to a goverment grant he applied for. We have managed to provide a bed and some other essentials but he still needs help to get other household items.
This young man is struggling financially. He has recently moved into a new flat and has accrued some debts. He receives Universal Credit monthly but finds it hard to make ends meet. Please would you help him to make a fresh start and pay off his debts and bills. Thank you.
The lady was found on the street and she was very weak and her mental health was poor. We have picked her up and offered 3 nights temporary accommodation whilst the council sorts out her paperwork and determines her eligibility. Tonight we were able to give her food and this really helped to bring a smile to her face. She was very thankful for what we did for her and she is looking forward to sleeping in a safe, comfy bed. Thank you for your support as this lady's smile was very real.
This young man has mental health issues and finds it difficult to hold down accommodation. He was kicked out and we have provided him with temporary accommodation whilst they reassess his situation. We have been able to get one of our counsellors to talk to him so that he can get to the core on why he keeps getting kicked out. We hope this will be effective. Once completed we will work with the council to get him back into permanent accommodation.
B is a lovely man working with Christians Against Poverty. He got into debt as a result of unemployment, which was caused by mental health problems. He suffered abuse as a child from his stepfather, and because he never dealt with it his mental health was getting worse and worse. He has now decided to report the crime to the police and is receiving support to get through the court case. He is working hard to pay back his debts, a Debt Relief Order would allow him to have a fresh start.
H had a long time off work after a badly broken pelvis - this was when she first started accruing debt. Her debts grew when she had to leave her partner because of domestic violence but he still retained the child benefit. She did her best to try to clear her debts but while Citizens Advice were helping her recover child benefit they advised that a Debt Relief Order was her best option. H and her children are recovering emotionally after the abuse but your donation would give them a complete new start.
S is a Christian lady who has fled from an abusive situation. She has been in emergency temporary accommodation, but feels very fortunate to have been rehoused in a new area. As she fled with nothing and is on Job Seeker's Allowance, S is in great need. An electric cooker would help her situation enormously and she would be very grateful for help.
N has fled an abusive relationship, she had to leave without any belongings. She is safe but has nothing. Sadly she cannot apply for benefits yet as she has no ID (her ex-partner has it all). It will take weeks, if not months to get new ID (or access to the old ID). In the meantime she is being supported with food parcels, but please help if you can so that we can help her to get some essential clothes, underwear, shoes and toiletries. The police are involved with the case.
R is a single mother of three teenagers who fled domestic abuse in April. R has come out of a safe house now, needs to start afresh and needs everything. R is on benefits and being supported by her local foodbank but is unable to afford to buy a washing machine. Any help you could give R would be very much appreciated.
D has been in prison but is now a practising Christian and has turned his life around. He is in supported housing and is also receiving help from Konnect Cornwall. He has himself obtained work on a construction site and desperately needs to buy work boots, site trousers, Hi vis jacket and hard hat totalling £59.96. Please can you help this man with his fresh start
A mum and her young child would greatly appreciate being able to have some drawers to put their clothes in, rather than the boxes they have a present. But providing this gift would not just be about having a place to put clothes neatly, more importantly it would mark a fresh start and be a sign of new hope following months of anguish about overwhelming financial debt. It would also be an answer to prayer for those receiving it.
