G and her 11-month-old daughter have been granted permanent residency in the UK after fleeing G's home in Africa, but a lack of housing in London and wanting a fresh start following traumatic events led them to Bradford. G has settled well into her new community, attending a local church and registering at a children's centre. She has an unfurnished housing association home, but only a dustpan to keep it clean, which with a crawling child isn't ideal. She is sleeping on a mattress on the floor.
Our Client from the Foodbank has been relocated to our area with her two young children following repeated domestic abuse incidents. The Council have acted very quickly in finding her a suitable small house and she needs some stair carpet and lounge carpet. She has a young toddler who has just started to crawl and our Client wants to make sure the floorboards are covered and then safe. The family has been through a very emotional time and this gesture would make all the difference.

A 33-year old asylum seeking man living in Leeds has been encouraged to submit a fresh asylum claim. This will require several new pieces of evidence which he has no funds to arrange. He is currently destitute, feeling desperate, with no accommodation, but is hopeful that this will allow his claim to be made so he can remain in the UK.
