Please help her with a new washing machine so that she has the basic items to set up her new home.
S is a vulnerable adult who has previously suffered financial abuse. Due to this S is paying back fines at a high rate which has resulted in her income being reduced by quite a large amount.

S is in desperate need of both a cooker and a freezer so she can feed herself. Please help S buy a cooker.

Safe Families are supporting a single mum of a toddler and a baby. The family have just been relocated seeking domestic refuge and are in need of carpets to make their flat safe for the children.

This young man is now opening up fully to his counsellor and is moving forward in a positive way, however, there is still some unchartered territory to investigate so if you could help with this he would be very grateful. Thank you.
This lady is benefitting greatly from the counselling she has received thus far. She is regaining her self-worth and esteem since the discovery that her ex-husband was having an affair of 1½ years standing. The discovery left her mortified and she is slowly becoming used to a single status again. If we can help her complete her counselling she feels that she can start again in a better from of mind.
This lady is seeing progress as she deals with 50 years of an abusive marriage. She had to relocate because of the abuse to her and her 2 children.

Thank you for the help you have already given, and I pray we can help her to continue her treatment.
Counselling for this woman is ongoing as she addresses her past. She had a very abusive partner which led to her children being placed into a foster home, however, progress is being made and further sessions are recommended to delve deeper into her traumatic past. Her goal through all of this is to have her children returned to her, and this goal is spurring her on with her counsellor.
This lady is 34 and is a client of Sue Lambert Trust in Norfolk.

G has been looking after his daughter whilst her mother recovers from cancer. While away, his flat was subject to a robbery and trashed.

S is a single mum to four children. Her ex-partner was abusive to her and the children and they have been through a very difficult time. They have a very small home and some of the children currently have to share beds. A bunk bed would give the children their own sleeping space in the limited space available which would help the family rebuild their lives.
Mrs B has several health problems and has suffered from domestic violence. Due to her situation, she is facing substantial debt problems. She cannot afford in her current position to repay her debts, so we have helped her arrange a Debt Relief Order to write off her debt and give her a fresh start.

This lady has recently been made homeless and the council has provided a council house for her and her children. Unfortunately, the house is quite run down and needs brightening up with a lick of paint. This would really help with the well-being of the family if you can help.
Safe Families is supporting a mum in Cumbria with 2 young children under 3, who would really appreciate support. They are on Universal Credit. Mum has recently fled domestic abuse and is staying in temporary accommodation.

Mum would really appreciate this as she is already buying a lot of basic essentials for her new home.
J has removed herself from an abusive relationship with her ex-partner. Her property has been damaged whilst she was in the relationship and therefore she would like to repair as much as she can.

With winter approaching she would be so grateful for help to buy these.

N and her 4 children have a new home after they were targeted by racists in their previous area. They started again with nothing and managed to settle well with the help of their family support worker, but leaving so quickly and new claims for benefits has left N with debts she cannot clear and this is making her very anxious. N doesn’t want the kids to know about the debt in case they worry. They have been through enough. Any help with this fee will be greatly appreciated.
J has been homeless for a number of years and sleeping on the streets. He is now being supported into his own accommodation, but it is unfurnished and he has no possessions or savings to purchase anything. We are helping him with some bedding and basic kitchen items, but a fridge, microwave or washing machine would really help him to begin to rebuild a normal life, establishing a routine for himself and helping him to be independent.
We are working with a lovely mum who has various health issues and her children are experiencing emotional problems. She was a victim of domestic abuse, which left her in hospital.

A financial contribution of £130 will enable us to hire a skip for mum and ensure the house is clear of dangerous clutter for her and her young children.

E is unemployed and uses her mobile phone to connect to the internet, to apply for jobs and also to speak to the Job Centre on her Universal Credit journal. This is essential to prevent a sanction and her benefits being stopped. Sadly she has been mugged and her mobile stolen. She doesn't have the money to replace it and she didn't have the phone insured. £80 would get her a replacement phone, a pay as you go SIM card and £20 credit, which is what she had on the stolen phone. Thank you.

L is working at two different jobs. She has had several jobs before and due to the number of changes in her income and benefit entitlement she has struggled to keep up with her finances. Due to the difficulties with this in the past, she has considerable debts. She would like to apply for a Debt Relief Order giving her the option to have her debt written off so she can start afresh financially. It would be incredible if she could get help with the Debt Relief Order fee for this as she is unable to afford it alone.
This young student is suffering with anxiety and depression and has had to move out of her housing in November as she started to go to university in September to study. She was made redundant from her part-time job in November, and she is now caught in a trap where she cannot access benefits because she is a student, and she cannot have accommodation of her own because she doesn't have a job, so she is staying with a friend temporarily. Please can we help contribute to her living costs with her friend? We are working on a solution to this.
We have a mum of 3 who has had a really challenging time. Her children would really benefit from having some fun during half term and we would love to apply for a bursary from the YMCA for the children to access their wonderful holiday club.

This lovely lady is struggling to meet her basic expenditure and has found herself unable to pay her debts. She has asked Christians Against Poverty for help.

This single lady has run up quite a few debts in the past. She is now working with Christians Against Poverty to devise a plan to pay off the debts and become debt free.

She requires new glasses for long distance and driving which she cannot afford. Any support will be greatly appreciated as this will make her life much better.

S is a single mum who escaped her home due to domestic violence. Until recently S has been living in a refuge with her children. S has suffered from mental health issues due to the traumatic experiences endured from her previous relationships. For her fresh start in her new home S hasn't got any furniture or white goods. S would like to prioritize getting beds for the children and a fridge/freezer to store food in for her family.
The counselling this lady is receiving is making a big difference in her life as she addresses her traumas. She fled an abusive marriage, and this coupled with being severely abused as a child has led her to seek help. Her other diagnoses of PTSD and OCD only exacerbate her problems. Further sessions are required so can we help her fully recover? Thank you.
