£150 needed for pans and drawers

W was living in a furnished private rented property. The rent increased by a third, after a commercial landlord took over, and she was also on a zero hour contract. She has now moved to a social landlord but is struggling to get household items, such as pans and bedroom drawers. She now has a regular morning job as a Social Worker, which is improving her mental state. She has a few debts that she couldn't pay from her old property which means she is unable to save.

£150 needed for a fridge freezer

T has been homeless and sleeping rough for a number years. She has most recently been sofa surfing for a short while, but has just secured her own tenancy. The property is unfurnished and T doesn't have any savings or sufficient income to afford to buy any furniture. She would really benefit from a fridge freezer, which would allow her to shop and eat more cheaply and healthily, improving her physical and mental health.

£50 needed for a clothes airer and bookshelf

R was recently released from prison and has secured a tenancy for himself; however, he has very low income and, after paying bills and food, he has nothing remaining. He reads a lot of books to keep himself occupied and out of trouble. A bookshelf would mean that he can keep his books organised. He also has nowhere to dry his clothes so a clothes airer would help to prevent the condensation which is causing damp in his property.
