KW up until recently was a street sleeper for many years. He has now secured his first tenancy. I have been through KW's income and expenditure and sadly he cannot afford to buy a fridge. KW has been donated a cooker from his new neighbour and is keen to learn how to cook. Ideally he would like to batch cook and freeze the extra items, so that he saves money and eats healthily. Thank you
SB was made homeless when his private landlord sold the house he was living in. He slept rough for a few months and was then offered a hostel place. He has now been given a new tenancy for a flat but he has no furniture for the property. He has been given a sofa and some curtains but really needs a bed before he can move in. Could you help him?
This single mum of two had been managing on benefits until last year when both her cooker and fridge freezer broke down. She paid call out and repair bills but eventually had to replace both items. Unfortunately this pushed her into debt. The debts have accumulated over several months and she now feels desperate and afraid of the threat of eviction. A Debt Relief Order would enable her to make a fresh start. She is determined not to make the same mistake again.
This request is from a single mum of a 2 year old, who can’t work due to disability. She has recently left a long abusive marriage and wants to give her and her son a fresh start. The relationship left her in debt and she needs money to cover bills. She has described asking Acts 435 as her last option.
R came to us for help with his debts which started when he moved to Scotland to try and start a life of his own. Unfortunately he got in with a wrong crowd and the dreams he had disappeared and his health took a bad turn following addiction. He came back home and is currently in rehab but he knows the debts will still be there on his return. It took a lot of courage to ask for help and we really want to show him our support by making this dream come true. Please can you help?
LH is a 30 year old single parent with 2 dependent children. LH works and tries to give a good life to her children. The children's father has left LH and makes no payment towards their keep.

Please help us to remove this threat to this vulnerable family.
CS is a 33 year old separated man with debts from his marriage that were taken out by his wife who then left him with the debts. He tries very hard to repay but the amounts are too great for him. We are assisting him to remove this debt burden on his life. Please if you could help us to assist him he would be very grateful.
P has been in hospital for 6 months suffering from complex mental health problems. He has been offered a furnished flat in supported accommodation, where he will continue to receive the support he needs to live independently and maintain stable mental health. Having been evicted from previous accommodation after struggling to keep it in good order, he really wants to ensure he keeps his new flat clean and tidy, and a vacuum cleaner would really help with that.
A has been coming to church for six months. He has been on an Alpha course and is now in a weekly bible study. He has a low income, some debt issues and is currently being helped by Christians Against Poverty. A would love to go to Spring Harvest for a few days with people from his local Church. He is not able to afford this, so any gift towards this ticket would be fantastic.
A is currently losing 40% of her Universal Credit (the legal maximum) to debt repayments meaning her entitlement is reduced from £317 p/m to £190 - she simply cannot manage to live on this and she is very depressed about her situation. Her debts are qualifying debts that could be placed in a Debt Relief Order meaning her Universal Credit would be reinstated to the full amount. Please help A restore a little hope and faith in her life.
J is a single mum with a young baby. We recently applied for money to help with bills and rent. She moved into a new property and has very little furniture and needs money for pots and pans and new furniture.
SA was granted asylum in January 2019 having arrived in the UK in August 2018 from Syria. He now has a tenancy for a flat but he has no furniture. He has applied for benefits but will not get his first payment for 5 weeks. He is asking for help to buy a single bed and mattress so that he doesn't have to sleep on the floor. He has been given some bedding and a small hob, so he feels with your help he will get by until he can afford to buy the other items he will need. Thank you.
NB came to us after being made homeless. He has struggled with his weight for a long while, but he is now making headway and has lost a lot of weight in the last few months by exercising and eating healthy food. This is great of course but means that none of his clothes fit him anymore, and he does not have the extra funds to pay for new ones. He would be very grateful for some money towards a few new tops and trousers that fit him well.
I have a gentleman who needs to move due to severe anti social behaviour and harassment from other people on the block, he suffers with severe anxiety and depression and has no means to pay for removals. His housing support worker has managed to get him a new flat in a safe environment. This was literally sorted today and requires £120 for removals as soon as possible please. He really doesn't feel safe. Can you help him please? Thank you.
