£80 needed for carpet

This elderly gentleman has recently been housed by the council after a time of homelessness. He became homeless after his retirement from the NHS where he was living in hospital accommodation. His new flat is unfurnished and our Church is sourcing household items to equip him with the essentials. The floors are bare and would benefit from some carpet to keep the flat warm. It's estimated that £300 would cover the cost of new carpets. Our Church would match fund the extra £150. Thank you.

£100 needed for bereavement counselling

J has had a traumatic life, having been a victim of sexual assault, held at gunpoint with her two young sons during an armed raid, and suffering violent relationships. Her mental health has suffered greatly due to this. Both her parents have passed away and, more recently, her best friend was killed following a vicious attack. Jane understandably suffers with Post Traumatic Stress Disorder, which has only been exasperated by all of this. We believe that bereavement counselling will hugely benefit her wellbeing.

£90 needed for a Debt Relief Order

S and S are a lovely couple, working with Christians Against Poverty (CAP), who met when they were quite young and lived with parents. In their words they were careless with money and took out payday loans, but this quickly spiralled out of control. They then moved into a home together, had children, saw their debts grow and become overwhelming, and they buried their head in the sand. They finally reached out for help to CAP and since then they already feel life has turned around. Can you help them with a fresh start?

This gentleman was released from prison and is homeless. He is vulnerable and unstable, due to mental health issues, and has medication to ensure he is stable. He also has physical pain all the time which is physically and emotionally draining.

£140 needed for driving lessons

My client, who is a care leaver, has got a job working as a Landscape Gardener. His boss is asking that he learns to drive so he can drive the work van and have more responsibility. He is on quite a low wage at the moment so is struggling to afford driving lessons. He would really benefit with some money for a starter package so he can begin the lessons. He really enjoys the job, and it has been brilliant for his mental health, so this would give him more freedom and confidence.
