A has just moved into a new council house. The house is completely unfurnished. He has been able to obtain most of the items he needs, but has been left without a few key things such as a microwave and a vacuum cleaner. He is on a low income so will struggle to afford these items himself. Any support would be greatly appreciated.
This young person is a looked after child and has very minimal support from friends or family. They have fallen behind on their gas and electric payments. This donation would help them get on top of their bills and massively improve their confidence whilst moving forward with their new budgeting plan.
M is a young mum with a 9 month old baby. She has little or no family support and has recently moved into a more appropriate property. She has some support from local agencies who have contacted us to see if we can get her some help with carpeting her new home. Any help you could give would be really appreciated.
The carpets in the lady's home have recently had to be pulled up due to mould/damp growing underneath - this has been treated by the landlord but E has been left with no flooring in her home. This can be dangerous if she has an epileptic fit straight onto the concrete flooring. I have been working with E for a while now, she always tries to make the best of any situation she is in. Her recent diagnosis of epilepsy has had such an impact on her own personal wellbeing and knocked her back.
This lady in her 50's with physical and mental health issues has been living in unsuitable accommodation. She has recently been allocated a flat but is unable to pay the first two weeks' rent, as she is already on a stretched budget and has some debt. She looks forward to a fresh start in a home where she can feel safe and better manage her daily living. She will be most grateful for any assistance towards her 2 weeks' rent.
Our tenant is a care leaver and expectant teenage mother. She has recently moved into one of our properties for a fresh start and is awaiting the arrival of her baby any day now. She has very little money as she is too young to claim benefits and is trying to furnish the property as best she can in order to make the property a comfortable home in which to settle with her child. Our tenant would very much appreciate any support to make this possible.
Our client has been a victim of domestic violence and has lived in our supported accommodation for 18 months. She has just moved to her first Local Authority tenancy and has managed to equip the unfurnished property receiving items from her family and using second hand shops. There is no flooring in the bathroom and this lady has no means of paying for new flooring to be fitted. Please could you help her?
Our client has been evicted from her home with four children. She has been moved to a house which is roughly 50 miles from the children's school. They have limited funds and are struggling with the petrol costs in an older car, doing lots of miles. The mum doesn't want to move them to another school as they have suffered enough upheaval and would be added distress for them all. It is hoped they will be back in their original town, in a new home, in about three weeks. Please can we help mum pay for petrol until they're back closer to school?
Our client has recently been left by her husband and is having a very difficult time with the situation, both emotionally and financially. She is reluctant to take any help and trying her best to turn the situation around by taking a number of casual cleaning jobs. Unfortunately, she has a very large water bill that she just cannot afford to pay. She would be so appreciative of any support in paying for this and relieving this extra burden during this difficult time.
S and her children have had to move due to her child's disability. The new property they have moved into has a thread-bare carpet on the stairs and the grippers are poking through. This is making the stairs unsafe to use, but S just cannot afford to replace it. We would love to be able to help provide carpet for them. Many thanks for your support.
This young person has spent her teenage years sofa surfing with family members following a breakdown in relationship between her and her parents. She has secured supported accommodation but has very few possessions and no essential household items. Your donations would enable her to obtain a bed and smaller items such as a microwave, towels, and bedding. She is very vulnerable has no other financial support available, so your kindness would make such a difference.
M is a single parent who lives in a ground-floor council flat which is badly affected by damp and condensation. The council have decided to refurbish her kitchen and all of the units have been removed due to their condition. Whilst these will be replaced by the council, the the washing machine, fridge freezer and cooker, which were all in very poor working condition, will not be replaced. Donations towards the replacement of the fridge freezer and cooker would be very appreciated.

Despite ongoing mental and physical health issues she is determined to make a better and more positive life. She is currently studying Applied Science and is continually engaging with local services and professionals to improve her life. As a full time student she's excluded from other means of financial support and would so appreciate support in buying new carpets and blinds for her new home.
We are currently supporting a single mum who is doing her best parenting alone, while facing some personal struggles along the way. This mum is trying her best to keep some order in her home and we would love to be able to help her towards purchasing a lockable garden shed so that she can declutter her home and have somewhere safe to put the children’s bikes and scooters.
We are currently supporting this lady following the loss of her partner to suicide. Her vacuum cleaner broke three months ago and she is unable to afford a new one. She is currently having to borrow a vacuum cleaner from a neighbour, but with three young children this has been difficult. Help with funding this would be greatly appreciated.
L's come to us in extreme panic and worry - she is being evicted on Friday. Years of emotional and financial abuse by her son who was living with her and then leaving the property in a mess and with massive rent arrears means she has to move. Getting a debt relief order is possibly her saving grace and she will be allowed to stay. Thankfully a friend who wasn't aware of her circumstances is helping to make the property right again and supporting her mentally however she has no funds for the fee.

This young lad has left his adoptive parents home after returning to his birth mother. Living with his birth mother was not what he imagined. His birth mother was using drugs, which has upset the lad. He left her and is now on the streets with no where to go. He is in desperate need of a pair of basic trainers as his current pair has holes in and are falling apart. He would be so very grateful if you could help him. Thank you.
This gentleman has recently been released from prison, and has been sleeping rough after his relationship broke down. He has mental health needs which are not met, diagnosed or medicated and we are currently supporting him in addressing these. He is about to move into a temporary accommodation hostel and needs a microwave so he can cook his own food and become independent.
I'm supporting a young man who is about to move into his own flat. He has previously lived in our supported accom' for 18 months after family breakdown led him to being homeless, he is a positive young man relishing the opportunity to have his own tenancy. He has progressed well with our support and is now confident to live independently. His new tenancy has no flooring throughout and has large rooms. We will continue to provide him with support to help him establish his tenancy.
Our client is currently sofa surfing due to a breakdown in his relationship. He has had a very difficult life and has overcome a range of issues. He has just been given a new tenancy and is looking at starting a new life, but does not have the spare income to buy new furnishings- he has no possessions except clothes. This request would help to get him a couch, a bed and mattress and kitchen items. All this would enable him to cook and live semi-independently, creating a home for himself and his children coming to stay.
