£120 needed for a cooker

B is a young mother whose daughter is almost one year old. She is on Universal Credit which means that her income is very low. B is moving into a council flat with her daughter where there is only a fridge/freezer and a sofa. She has very little in the way of appliances. Buying meals from take away shops is very expensive and not at all as nutritious as home made food. It is really important that B obtains a cooker as soon as possible and any help you can give would be greatly appreciated.

£100 needed for a passport ID

M is a polish national who has fallen on hard times; she's been homeless for a year. When her national ID expired, she was fired. With no money to renew her ID, she used up her savings to keep a roof over her head. Eventually she became street homeless. M got mixed with the wrong crowd and is now trying to get her life back on track but she needs to renew her ID to be able to move on. £100 will allow her to apply for a passport from the Polish embassy and seek employment.
