Young mum on benefits has been told her rental contract is up and the landlord can't extend it. She has found another property nearby but needs £650 deposit.

S has mental health problems and after a difficult few years is starting to turn her life around. She is now in her own flat and this is helping her build more stability in her life. She has managed to get together most of the things she needs, but she is in a ground floor flat, and because of her mental state, people looking through her windows causes her a lot of distress. If she had blinds she could control better when her blinds are open and reduce the stress that this problem is causing.
G suffers multiple physical and mental health problems and is struggling financially. The condition of her flat is detremental to her health and she would like to move. She is worried about covering the cost of the move, and also that if she is not able to move quickly she could find herself with rent to pay on 2 properties. She would appreciate help from Acts 435 so that she could move as soon as a suitable flat became available and not have the additional worry of getting into further debt.
M is constantly in pain & suffers from both mental & physical health issues. Unfortunately his health is deteriorating. Due to anxiety he got behind with his rent but has been reducing the arrears.

His health advisors are supporting him in appealing this decision. M would be so grateful for your help.

Sam was the victim of a serious road accident, had a leg amputation and is left with severe spinal injuries and breathing problems. He now receives welfare benefits, but some of this money goes to repayments of debts incurred while Sam was in hospital. He now has a Council ground floor flat which is badly in need of repainting. Sam has the paint but can't do the painting or afford to pay anyone else. A donation for this would make Sam feel much more at home.

J is a single mum living in a local authority flat. She is struggling financially and racial abuse from people living nearby has made her depressed and withdrawn, She is afraid to go out and will no longer allow her children to play outside. She has been offered a private rental in an area where she will feel accepted but does not have all the money she needs for the deposit. A gift from Acts 435 would make up the shortfall and allow her to make a new life for herself and her family.

R has only a small amount left to pay on rent arrears for a hostel. After this is paid he can move to more permanent accommodation. This would be a huge step for a man who has spent most of his adult life on the street!
This lady has found herself and her two children homeless following family breakdown. Whilst awaiting accommodation she is living with a friend, but is attempting to keep her children in their school. Unfortunately, the school is 10 miles away, meaning she travels 40 miles per day - which is mounting up. She is concerned to keep some stability for her children, so funding towards fuel for this short-term situation would be much appreciated.
