After a really tough year, S is moving on from her temporary accommodation to a permanent tenancy. She is so excited to have her own place and to be able to put her own stamp on it and be able to say that it's hers. S is currently on the lowest rate of Universal Credit and cannot afford carpets for her new place as she is only just able to make ends meet. She would be really grateful for any help and would love to make her new flat feel like a home.
Mr A has been rehomed as an emergency due to being a victim of domestic abuse which was both physical, financial and psychological from other members of his family. The abuse was so bad that he has left without any items of clothing or any furniture. He is afraid of what may happen should he return to collect anything. We are assisting with furniture but he literally has no clothing other than what he is wearing. We ask for assistance with a change of clothing, sleepwear, underwear and shoes.
As a Christians Against Poverty client this lady is working hard to address problems within her family that have lead to significant debt. Managing a household and working full time is a considerable challenge and resolving the historic debt through a bankruptcy will greatly ease the burden. She is saving up the majority of the fee but this application will provide an invaluable contribution towards the overall cost of £680 and help get her over the line.
We are looking for help to pay our client's Debt Relief Order fee. R has been trying to get herself out of debt for some time having split from her partner who wasn't paying any of their bills - unbeknown to her. She has tried really hard and can keep up with her bills now but the debt is causing so much stress and uncertainty. She is a single mum with 2 children at home and would really appreciate the help.
This client came to us feeling extremely stressed with their financial situation. They had been in £5,000 worth of debt over the past few years and finally 6 months ago they managed to pay it off. However due to an unexpected bill they are fully back into their overdraft. This has brought back stress and anxiety and with a large amount of interest they cannot see the end. This support would allow them to pay a lump some and get their finances in order, bringing some peace and hope to them.
This young family arrived in the UK last year after being forced to leave Iran as they had become Christians. Their baby was born in December. They have been granted asylum and been moved into a council flat. The council have provided a bed, a travel cot, a cooker and a washer but they need basic furniture including a proper cot. They both had good jobs in Iran and are actively seeking work but this is difficult in lockdown.
This is the second time posting for a fridge for this family due to them moving house and needing a bigger one now. (The original donation will be added to this one.) They have had an extremely difficult time so we are hoping this new move will enable them to settle well and the 3 children and the grandson will benefit from some good meals. The mum suffers with her mental health so the older children often need to step into a caring role to help out with younger two.
My client has done so well with CAP and is now debt free but now her Fridge freezer has broken. She has saved up half of the money but doesn't wish for a credit card to restart so your help to replace her FF, would be wonderful.
Can you help this disabled lady to become debt-free? Due to health issues, she is unable to work and unable to pay back her debts. A debt relief order would wipe away her debts and give her a fresh start, freeing her of the crushing worry of debt and being chased by creditors. This lady would be incredibly grateful if you can possibly help her. Once free of financial worries she wants to concentrate on her health and volunteering to give back to her community. Thank you for your generosity.
Parents of a 1-year-old boy have moved into their own property and are doing their best to make the house a home and a safe environment for their son. They have done well to furnish the home with most of the basics however, they would love some help to purchase some smaller items. Dad is seeking employment so they are focusing their funds on paying the bills. They would love to be able to purchase a clothes airer, ironing board, iron, chopping board, utensils, shower mat, towels, and bedding.
T is a single woman and has been homeless in the past. She has been through a lot and as a result, suffers from poor mental health. She is now living in a hostel. Over the years she has build up debts and is unable to pay this money back. Help towards the £90 fee would mean that T could have a fresh start, move out the hostel and rebuild her life.
We are working with a mum in Tipton who has recently moved into a larger home which more appropriately meets the needs of her children. This means that she is in need of some furniture. She would love to have a dining table and chairs set so that she and the children can sit together for meals, especially now that her twin toddlers are out of highchairs. I would like to ask for a donation of £120 towards this cost please.
We are working with a family in the Tipton area. Mum has made some great progress with her parenting and her relationship with her children. She has also been able to secure a promotion at work and this has raised her self esteem. However, she really struggles with anxiety and would appreciate some counselling to help her to try to get to the root of this and move forward. I would like to ask for a donation of £80 to cover the cost of Vital Connexions
