G is a recovering alcoholic requiring funds to get him to and from NA meetings. G is struggling with his mental health and addiction and finds the meetings very beneficial as he is able to discuss his issues with others, the meetings are held in a town which is 15 miles away and he is struggling to pay for the transport as he has various debts and is on benefits. We would support G to get a block of train tickets to ensure the funds are spent on this. Any donations would be great. Thank You

K has a Pakistani heritage and is therefore an Urdu speaker. She came to the UK in 2007. Her spoken English is generally good but her reading and writing in English are weak, which causes many problems. K feels a call to train as a minister within the Church of England. It seems likely she has a vocation and her preaching is strong. In order to train, she requires training in written English, but she requires help with the cost of the course.
Due to A's irregular work, his benefits kept changing. There were times where his benefits were stopped. As a result of it, he struggled with rent and was dependent on the foodbank. A volunteer sensed something wasn't right as he was extremely dirty, very downcast. He also made arrangements for his dog to be look after which was rather weird. Then it brought to our attention he wanted to end his life.. He is trying to start his life again.
