L has been homeless for a while after an abusive relationship broke down. She has been offered accommodation but has nothing to go in it. She would be so grateful for help toward a bed and settee as she lost absolutely everything. Somewhere to sit and sleep would go so far toward restoring her dignity and getting a fresh start. Thank you so much!
F has to move quickly due to mental health issues being made worse in his flat with people playing loud music all night. They also let anyone in and people intimidate him and bang on his door. He needs to move somewhere quiet with older people in order to recover. He has been offered a place but he needs help with the first week rent as he only gets a small amount in benefits & uses his money to get buses anywhere he can away from the noise and cruelty of people. Thank you!
B had to flee her home with a young child due to domestic abuse. She has been re-housed but still requires curtains/blinds for the windows. She would be really grateful if you could help. The last year has been considerably difficult for her but she is an amazingly strong woman, moving forward with her life to ensure that she is a positive role model for her child.
Please could you help this gentleman- he has moved into new accommodation and is on a low income. He is trying to make it liveable with what little money he has, but can't afford any floor covering for any of the rooms. Could you please help him to sort the lounge and bedroom please? Any amount would be much appreciated, thank you.
T is a single parent who is struggling to provide for her small family because of depression and anxiety. She says she's scared there's no moving on in her life and that she daren't spend any money, even on important things, as she doesn't know when the next bailiff will come. Getting a debt relief order would remove this anxiety immediately and allow her to try and pick up the pieces of her young life.
R was homeless and sleeping rough in London. He has been relocated to an unfurnished flat in Bradford with only the clothes he owns. He knows nobody in Bradford and has no savings to purchase any furniture, or any income yet. He would really like a wardrobe and drawers as his clothes are his only possession at the moment.
L has been homeless for the past three years, but has recently been supported into long-term social housing. The flat is unfurnished, L has been donated a starter pack with basic kitchen items, crockery and bedding, but would really value a cooker so that he can start his journey to becoming independent and to learning how to live and blossom as a person.
T has left an abusive relationship and is having to start life again at the age of 54. She has been left in debt and is getting help from citizens advice. They have suggested a debt relief order to help her get a fresh start and take control of her debt.
C is a single parent with 4 young children. Her former partner was both financially and physically abusive. She has been left with debts she cannot pay. She is depressed, worried, upset and an emotional wreck (her words). One of the debts is being aggressively pursued by bailiffs. A Debt Relief Order with stop this and allow her to start again financially. Please help.
J's husband has recently passed away. He had worked full time and J did not work. She has now been forced to claim Universal Credit. J receives a widows pension of £300 p/m but all of this is offset against her benefits meaning she effectively receives nothing. Deductions for various debt repayments mean her monthly income is £190. J cannot afford to feed herself and is visiting food banks. A Debt Relief Order will restore her benefit income to £317 p/m. Any help will be greatly appreciated.
G is a mother of 2 young children and married for 20 years, however she is subject to domestic abuse and mental cruelty. G has been advised to leave and move into priority housing with her children. This money would help make the house more comfortable for them by buying her carpet for one of the rooms in the new house. The amount requested would help give the family a new start in a new home.
We have a young single mother of three (children aged 6, 2 and 6 weeks) who is struggling to make ends meet in her accommodation. The apartment has very little furniture and minimal carpeting. She has requested help with carpeting the main bedroom where she and the baby sleep. We hope that Acts 435 donors can help this young woman.
L is a 21 year old mum of two boys and their father was violent. He is now serving a prison sentence and the family have been moved away from the area where his friends and family live and where he will be expected to return on his release. L is expecting a baby in September and needs a fresh start with baby things as the few things she had were old and have been left behind when she was moved. She has gathered some things together but needs a pram.
S is a single mum with three children under the age of 9. She is going through a difficult time as she has suffered from domestic violence a short while ago. The children are all sleeping in one room with mum at the moment and they have no storage for their clothes - some of the family clothes are in boxes and some are on the floor. Having some storage for the children would be fantastic for the whole family and mum has prioritised a large chest of drawers as the most helpful.
A lovely 52yr old lady needs help quickly. She has physical & mental health problems due to years of horrible domestic abuse. She has found the courage to ask for help. A worker has found a property for her to move to but it all has to be done quickly & quietly so that she won't be followed. Can you help her raise £80 to pay for a van & man to move her things please? Any amount would be so appreciated. Thank you for reading.
Our Client from our Foodbank is in urgent need of a pushchair with a rain hood and some clothing for their one-year-old child. A change in circumstances due to unacceptable behaviour from their spouse meant our Client has had to totally start again in a new area. She has very few resources of her own and mobility with her child is of great importance. Your help will really help the Client and child concerned. Thank you.
A has been mostly unemployed for many years. He tries very hard to get a job and regularly gets interviews but with no success. A got into debt several years ago after a benefit mix up that was not his fault. He is proud and independent and tried to sort everything out himself but the debts have just got bigger. After working with our Citizen's Advice Worker, A has agreed to apply for a Debt Relief Order to give himself a new start. He is still always optimistic about getting a job soon.
