This young mum is doing very well adjusting to life with her 5 month old baby. With help from volunteers she has moved to a new house and is creating a loving and happy home. Now the sun has appeared she would like to be able to spend time, with the baby, in her garden. To do this she needs to be able to maintain the space. We have separately requested help to purchase a lawn mower for her, but she will also need a lockable storage unit in which to store the equipment and keep it safe.
We are supporting a family where Mum and Dad are both struggling with physical and mental health problems. They have a busy home with 3 young children and a teenage nephew living with them! Due to their physical limitations, they sometimes find it hard to keep on top of their home conditions. At the moment they are working really hard to rectify this but are struggling to afford the costs involved in cleaning and refurbishing their kitchen. We'd like to help raise £120 to buy them a new fridge.
We would like to raise £120 to help this family redecorate their house. Their 10 year old daughter has a life limiting illness and her condition is deteriorating. A couple of their friends are helping them to redecorate their house; it is in real need of updating as they have not been able to focus on anything other than caring for their daughter.
E is a single lady in her 60's, who recently lost her job as the lady she was caring for sadly passed away. Due to complications with her Universal Credit application she has had little income over the past few months. She has moved into a cheaper, smaller flat and secured a low paid part-time job 16 hrs a week. She is registered with Christians Against Poverty to help with rent arrears which built up from her previous accommodation. We are seeking to support her with funds towards a cooker for her new flat. Thank you.
'R' is an unemployed single parent of four children who is struggling to pay his bills. He has rent arrears and is being threatened with eviction if he cannot pay his rent. He is making an appointment to seek advice from Christians Against Poverty to manage his debts; this request would enable him to pay his rent for one month and avoid eviction.
J has recently had his benefits transferred to Universal Credit. The changeover has caused him severe financial difficulties having had to wait several weeks to receive his first payment. He has accumulated debts which are now being deducted from his benefits and leaving him very little to live on. He is receiving help to manage his income but he has rent arrears which are causing particular anxiety and help to reduce this debt would greatly ease his concerns and ensure his tenancy is secure.

This is a request for a man from Sudan. He had to flee Sudan for his own safety as it is a war torn country. Unfortunately the UK government has refused his asylum claim and he is currently sleeping on the streets. Hope Housing is trying to help him with accommodation but he needs emergency bed and breakfast to get out of the cold while we try to find a longer term solution.
L is a mum of one who sadly in the last year lost a second baby. After years of substance abuse (she stopped when she got pregnant 2 years ago), she managed to turn her life around. A mental health condition prevents her from work but she is determined to stay clear from narcotics. She had to pay in advance for the flat she will be renting in a months time, meaning that she spent all of her Employment Support Allowance already. She has little subsistence and also requires a fridge/freezer for her new place.
J is living in a hostel having been homeless. He is making steady progress towards rehabilitation after his relationship broke down and is receiving a lot of support. However, his debts are causing him great anxiety. He would appreciate a donation towards the fees for a Debt Relief Order to enable him to remove a great weight from his mind.
