£90 needed for rent in advance

This care leaver has been with us for three years and is ready to move on. She was unable to sit in a café for our first meeting without feeling so anxious. Now she has a child, is studying with the Open University for a degree and moving into her own Social Housing property, which is a massive achievement. She is still quite anxious and worrying about finances is having an impact at present. She has managed to secure her own removal van, however, rent in advance is an issue. This would help her massively. Thank you

£150 needed for carpets for new accommodation

This lady has been working with us at Christians Against Poverty for over two years. She has just moved to a flat where there are no carpets, having been moved several times in the past for safety reasons. We are expecting this to become her permanent residence. We would love to bless her with help towards new carpets for the front room and her bedroom. Any donations would be greatly appreciated.

£100 needed for hoist installation and moving costs

M is the full time carer for his very disabled wife, G. They are being moved into emergency housing in a nearby town, as they are unable to afford their current property. As part of the move, they will need help with reinstalling the hoist which helps G get from her bed to her chair, and is an essential part of her daily life. This couple are really struggling at the moment and are getting support from a few agencies, but this gift would just mean that the move will go more smoothly.

£35 needed for basic furniture

M was in shared accommodation and has now moved to his own place. Although this is really good, he has very little furniture and needs some basics. We have secured a range of second hand furniture for him, but we need £45 to cover the cost of delivery.

£135 needed for help with moving costs

T is being rehoused with her two year old into a safer home, away from where she has had to deal with a lot of problems. She only has a small moving window because someone is moving into her property. She has saved £50 toward the moving costs but can't find anything available at that price so is in need of an extra £135. Could you help us to get her moved? Thank you!

£40 needed for family bus passes

This lady is mum to three young children. The family were placed in temporary Bed and Breakfast accommodation two months ago, having had to flee threats from her private rented Landlord. The family are staying in one room and struggling to make ends meet, due to only having a kettle and therefore having to buy hot food from cafes etc. Mum is trying to maintain some stability for the children by keeping them in their existing school, but this means that she is also incurring transport costs. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

£150 needed for Argos vouchers for household items

S has recently moved into his own flat after sleeping rough. He's been diagnosed with cancer and his prognosis is five years. We are encouraging him to gain support from Macmillan for emotional help and advice around finances etc. He would like a hoover, saucepan and TV for his flat while his finances are getting organised. We would love to show him that there are people who care, and that he is valued, as he struggles with feelings of worthlessness since being abused at Boarding School.

£120 needed for Wardrobe

We are currently supporting this lady with her mental health. She has recently moved into her own flat but is struggling to afford furniture, and does not yet have a wardrobe. Having her clothes everywhere is making her feel extremely anxious, and is negatively impacting on her mental health as she feels as though she is living in mess. Any help with funding this and helping to make her flat a more peaceful space would be greatly appreciated.
