A young woman who has recently overcome her mental health problems has been able to get into work and move into a new property, from a shared house. She is wanting a fresh start, her new property doesn't have a fridge, or house hold items. This would really help a fresh start and new beginning for this young mother.
H, her husband and three children live in a basement, rented flat which was recently flooded from the unoccupied flat above. She had no contents insurance, and through hard work has managed to clean and reuse furniture. However their bedding was saturated, contaminated with fibres from the ceiling boards and quickly developed mould spores. This money will replace the bedding that was destroyed, the beds and mattresses have been replaced via a local scheme as have the carpets.
L has recently moved many miles from his home due to racial abuse in his home town. This caused him severe mental health problems and a feeling of isolation. He has been unable to deal with his financial situation, due to his mental health, and his finances have become out of control. He is seeking a Debt Relief Order so that he can make a new start with his finances, now that his mental health is starting to improve.
D. was homeless and was moved by a council in London into a bedsit in Bradford. This accommodation was unsuitable and is having a negative effect on her health. She is moving to a council flat soon but has no money for removal costs, and very little furniture to move in with. Any support would help her on this fresh start.
This gentleman from Iran has failed his asylum claim, he became homeless and is not allowed to work in the UK. He has been living in unsuitable accommodation at a car wash. He urgently needs help to pay for temporary accommodation, and we are also working with others to help resolve his destitute situation and immigration problem.
My client has recently moved to a new property after her previous tenancy had severe issues with damp which had permeated all her furniture and clothes destroying them. Particularly effected was her son's bedroom, and these are the items we are requesting funds to replace. This has been a particularly stressful period for the family which has impacted upon their physical and mental health. I hope this contribution will help make their new house a home and put the experiences they had behind them.
M. is a failed asylum seeker from Pakistan. He does not have a work permit and is destitute. We are trying to find him suitable accommodation but at the moment he is staying at his friend and he needs £80 towards his £120 rent for a month.
My client has recently moved into supported housing and has little to no furniture. I am looking to purchase a sofa and TV stand for him. This move is following a period of youth homelessness and anything will help to settle him into his home.
This previously homeless woman was made so in fleeing from an abusive relationship. She has just recently moved into new, but unfurnished, accommodation. She really needs help to purchase basic cooking utensils and kitchenware, as she sets up her new home and life from scratch.
We are working with a hearing impaired client who lives alone in private rented accommodation. His landlord has fitted smoke detectors, as required, but as these are alarms he would not be able to hear it if there was a fire due to his hearing impairment. We are seeking funding to purchase for him a suitable fire alarm with strobe light and vibrating pads and a carbon monoxide alarm similar. Any help towards ensuring this vulnerable gentleman is safe in his home would be much appreciated. Many thanks.
This mum of three children has recently fled domestic violence. Some of the walls in their home are bare, and mum is suffering from low mood. We would like to purchase decorating materials incl paint, wallpaper, brushes, rollers and paste to help improve this family's living conditions. We then have volunteers who will be helping Mum to decorate. This would make a huge difference to this family and help create a homely environment.
We have a young mother moving into one of our properties and she is not eligible for a grant from the local authority. She has no access to any other funds to get the essentials she needs to move in. The items she is needing are a sofa, pans, plates, cutlery, toaster and kettle. Please can you help?
Dad is trying to prioritise making his home a cleaner and nicer place to live for himself and his teenage daughter. Their washing machine has recently broken which is not helping with their efforts to maintain their home. Can you help towards the cost of a washing machine?
This lady has a joint tenancy with her partner who has now left. She works but is unable to afford the rent herself, and cannot downsize as she is already in a very small property. Until she can take her ex-partner off the lease she is unable to apply for housing benefit. It costs £50 to amend the lease which she cannot afford. She would really appreciate any help towards this cost, so she can apply for help towards her rent and stay in the property.
W, 44, has gone through a lot of struggles recently due to a breakdown of relationship- losing his house, car, job and ending up homeless. Providing money for a bike would allow him to access transport to all the different agencies and services he is engaging with as he cannot afford transport. He is extremely motivated to rebuild his life and a bike is a very practical thing that could help him with that. Please consider helping to fund this and help W get back on his feet.
N is from Iran and has been granted refugee status. He is currently in asylum accommodation and his eviction date is mid-August. He is on waiting lists for temporary accommodation, however as the waiting lists are so long he has been advised it is unlikely he will get anything. He has no money and is waiting for benefits which will be another 5 weeks. He is in real need of funds to pay for a hostel for a few nights and for food.
