This man has suffered with poor mental health for a long time. He was living in a damp flat and after much appealing has finally been given decent accommodation, close to his children. He is on benefits and unable to work due to his condition. The new flat is in need of freshening up, it is a big improvement. This funding would enable him to buy new wallpaper and paint, and friends and family are able to help him decorate.
C is moving house and, while she has been able to meet part of the cost of moving, there is a shortfall which she would struggle to make up. She is on benefits, and has some mental health issues. Her move is imminent, and so she needs help as soon as possible so that she can settle in without this major worry hanging over her.
B is a 78-year-old single lady who has little family support, and suffers from a lung condition as well as anxiety and high blood pressure. She had to move out of her flat last September because of severe damp, but had no insurance. The Housing Association has been very helpful, and has replaced all her belongings except for the vinyl flooring. Her lung condition means that her health is badly affected by carpets. Other charities are helping but there is a shortfall, which we are trying to make up.
This young lady has been placed in her permanent home with her young child after fleeing domestic violence. She has saved hard, often going without to save for the necessities to make a stable home for herself and her child. She has no carpet in the property and the child is now toddling. This may be dangerous for the child. Any help to buy carpets will be gratefully received.
This man is homeless and in a very desperate way. He is in need of medical support and mental health support. We aim to get him the basics by putting him in temporary accommodation to ensure that he can gain back his dignity. Once we have provided him with the necessities we will plan for his permanent accommodation. He is not local so we will work with the council who have his duty of care. He is very thankful for us providing him with support and offers his thanks.
This young person has found himself homeless due to poor mental health. He has had relationship breakdowns with his family and friends. He just finds it very difficult to maintain relationships. He has asked us to support him. We are aiming to provide the support he needs by offering counselling as well. He is very religious and feels that the Lord has brought us to him to share his love. I was able to agree with his thinking. He is very keen to follow our advice and get the support that he needs. Any help you could give him would be really appreciated.
This gentleman moved into his flat 18 months ago after a period of homelessness. He has had an ongoing issue with mice since moving in. On enquiring, we have been told that this was also an issue with the flat previously. However the landlord says that this is the responsibility of the tenant. J does not have the money to be able to pay for the treatment needed. Once this has been done the landlord has agreed to return and seal up any holes in the property. Your help is very much appreciated.
G has been homeless for a while now. His old house was condemned due to the dire state it was in. He has been staying with his sister but his sister has mobility issues and already has kids so the house is feeling a little full. G has now been offered a flat and is really excited to finally have his own place. He just picked up the keys today and will be starting with a blank canvas. He would really like some carpets to make the place warmer. Can you help towards the cost of this?
This young person was referred due to sofa surfing and having a broken relationship with her parents. She is suffering with her mental health and her confidence is low. Since getting her own property with us she is slowly improving but there are still many items she doesn't have and no family to help her. These funds would enable her to obtain further items and ensure she successfully maintains her tenancy and help her live independently. Thank you.
J has just gone into shared accommodation following a period of homelessness, but he has very little income to equip his new home. In particular he is in need of some bedding, please could you help provide this for him?
Safe Families are supporting a single mum of 3 living in North Shields, and they have just moved into a new flat. Mum is really struggling to keep on top of the washing and getting it dry. She would really appreciate it if someone could help her out with purchasing a dryer. Thank you so much.
This lady and her children have fled domestic abuse. She now is able to go to a place of safety to call her home. It is a three bedroom house and there are no curtains or curtain rails. She needs net curtains and rails as well as some long wide curtains and pole. She depends on privacy to feel safe so curtains are vital for her and her children's security and well being. She is waiting on Universal Credit and has no savings.
This young person has lived with us for over a year and has come on so much during his tenancy. He now has more confidence, is wanting to look for employment and has just signed a new tenancy with a social housing provider. He was extremely isolated and with no family he has made new friends and is generally a lot happier. This money would enable him to move his goods to his new home to complete his new journey. Thank you.
M has moved into his flat and is having to leave his motorbike outside during the night. He needs it for his delivery work. There have been 2 attempts to steal it but he has chased the thieves away. Police have recommended he get a metal bike store which can be secured into concrete, his bike can be secured inside and alarmed. He has sourced a second-hand bike store, he has the alarm system already. He now needs a ground anchor to secure his bike to the ground. This amount will cover these costs. Thank you.
J lives in Lancaster and needs £150 to move house. She and her daughter will shortly be re-housed because of domestic abuse. She also suffers from poor mental health and feels unable to leave the home. She lives on Universal Credit and Personal Independence Payment and has no spare cash to fund the move. Her daughter has to travel to college, which further eats into her limited income. She will probably get help with the cost of the physical move but needs £150 to buy floor coverings, can you help?
Safe Families are supporting a mum of 3, in Hartlepool. The family have suffered traumatic abuse from a family member, and this has left the 3 children with continence issues. Mum has managed to source 3 new mattresses for the children but is unable to afford waterproof mattress protectors and night time adult size nappies for her oldest child. Bed-wetting is causing her children distress and it would make such a big difference to them if they could cover the mattresses. Thank you so much.
Miss M has rubbish outside her property which have been reported to the local environmental health team by her neighbours. She is unable to afford removal of the items. She is struggling financially because of additional things she is having to pay for such as hiring a laptop for home schooling and additional meals with the children being at home. Local environment have stated the items are attracting vermin.
