The client, who is an ex-care leaver, has been living in hostels for the last few years. Now he has been given a new flat but has no furnishings or finances for decoration. The local council have helped with various items but are unable to support him with decoration. After the many moves this client has had we would love to be able to help him decorate his new flat and help make it a home.
This is for a lady who recently lost her job, was then unable to pay her rent and lost her tenancy. She has now moved into another rented accommodation, and has sold most of her belongings to make ends meet. We are trying to support this lady as much as possible to help her to make a fresh start and improve her mental health, which has been severely affected by her situation. A cooker will enable her to make nutritious meals for herself, and give her back some of her self confidence.
C is in a bad place with low benefit income. They are trying to get their life back on track with support from Christians Against Poverty's help. A Debt Relief Order would free them financially but as they are on Universal Credit they cannot afford the fee whilst trying to pay towards the debts. Their income has gone down due to the recent reduction in Universal Credit. The local church have been regularly supporting them with food parcels but any help with the DRO fee would be wonderful.
This man has sought help with his debts after a prolonged time of homelessness. He has now secured accommodation and he is looking for a fresh start. He is working with Citizens Advice and they are looking at applying for a debt relief order as a form of insolvency. Would you be able to help by giving towards the £90 fee in order for this man to gain his fresh start?
Our Christian's Against Poverty client has moved out of damp, unsatisfactory housing into a first floor Housing Association flat. She has very few possessions and the flat is without any carpets. It would really help this house to feel like a home by providing this lady with a carpet for the lounge room. She will soon be debt free and this will be a wonderful fresh start for her. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
The Justice and Care Service have asked us for help for a washing machine for S, who has fled severe domestic violence and has been resettled in the area. She arrived with just a few belongings. Many household items are being donated, but no washing machine. She has complex health problems, which make it difficult for her to wash clothes and bedding by hand and there is no launderette nearby. A washing machine would make things so much easier for her as she begins to build her life back.
Our client is a single person living in a housing association property. They are currently on a very low income and have moved to a new property. The client does not have any money to buy a cooker- they have approached the council for help but have not been successful. They are currently living off takeaways and very low nutritional meals. Any help towards a cooker for their property would be much appreciated.
