This 20 year old man suffers from anxiety, panic attacks and depression. He lacks self esteem and struggles to leave his home. He is in receipt of employment & support allowance which barely covers his essential costs. He recently separated from his girlfriend and moved into a new flat. Various local charities have donated several household items but he is still in need of a washing machine so your help would be most appreciated.
C was street homeless - we have found him a room in a hotel that takes permanent residents. He has been homeless since losing his job which included his accommodation (albeit just a sleeping bag on the floor). He lost the job during winder and looking for work once it gets busy again, until then has no money and no benefits. If we had £110 we could get him into this hotel and then he is more likely to get a job and get his feet on the ground again. Thank you so much for your help!
M is street homeless and is finding it difficult to manage with his provisions. He desperately needs a waterproof warm coat and strong waterproof boots. Although it is slowly warming up it is still very cold at night. We can provide sleeping bags and other clothes but not good quality outerwear he needs. He finds it v difficult to go indoors although working with him on the fears he has of being abused. But in the meantime he needs help to stay safe outside. Thank you so much for your help.
S was street homeless desperately needing accommodation as suffers from alopecia and other acute skin conditions making sleeping in cold conditions untenable. We are working with him to get him inside again and found a flat with a good landlord but need some money up front. We are raising most of this the best we can and asking for help with £115 toward it so he can move in. He has just signed on having lost job and so has no money for 6 weeks so is desperate for help. Thank you so much!
This young single mum with five children have lost everything in a house fire. They have not suffered any serious injuries, and have been rehoused. However, they are about four miles away from their previous home, and the mum cannot afford the bus tickets for the children to get to their normal school. The local church and food bank are supporting them, and have been able to provide clothes and necessities, but it would mean a lot for the children to be able to go to their normal school.
David is a man with mental health problems who has been sofa surfing for a few years. This has been far from ideal as he has been living in the lounge of a schizophrenic man, who has many of his own issues. He has now found a new bedsit and has asked for help with moving in costs. The flat does not have much furniture or fittings.
2nd of 3 requests: Our client needs £300 to add to the £200 she has already saved to rent an apartment. She has at times had to sleep on the street and wants to live a decent life. She has found a place for £400 per month and £100 deposit. She has already paid the £200 she saved to the landlord so they could hold the house for her.

PW has moved into a bed sit, he was previously homeless and has struggled with his mental health in the past. He is delighted to now have a home and has bought some items and has had some things given to him. Sadly he cannot afford any carpets and there is no flooring in the flat. The floor is cement and very dusty, PW has tried to mop the floor but unfortunately this has not helped. We would love to be able to buy an off cut of carpet to make PW's flat more homely.

Can we get him carpet for downstairs? Let's help him settle & feel safe please. Thank you for reading.
Young lady aged 19 and several weeks pregnant is living in temporary accommodation. She and her partner both have learning needs, and suffer with depression and anxiety. They are from turbulent backgrounds and have experienced childhood trauma. She is on Universal Credit and has no spare cash to save for a deposit, estate agent fees and initial rent. We would love to support them into suitable housing, and they would be extremely grateful for any help they receive.

Steven has recently moved from supported accommodation into his own flat. We have been able to find second hand items to help furnish the flat, however he is in desperate need of a reliable washing machine. Currently he has to travel to the launderette which is expensive and difficult to access, particularly as he is in receipt of benefits not being fit to work. Can you help to fund his washing machine which will allow him to have clean clothing and a better standard of living? Many thanks
The client who has been a member and volunteer of the church for years has recently had some financial trouble, this has been putting a strain on his relationship with his mother whom he lives with. She kicked him out of their home a few days ago, but he has since made up.. however it has became clear that he needs to move on to prevent long term homelessness. This funding would help him find a new place and put down a deposit to secure the property.
The client has been living in supported accomodation for the last few weeks as his property was in a state of disrepair. Unfortunately he has had health issues since being in the property and been unable to pay the rent on two accomodations. This funding would help pay off some of the arrears and stop any eviction proceedings as his original home is now almost ready for him to move back into.
The client who is currently living in supported accomodation is in need of funds to help pay for living expenses in his property such as food, gas and electric. He is currently not receiving regular income so cannot pay until this is sorted out which will be a few weeks. This funding will go a long way in supporting him and enable him to retain his tenancy.
This lady who fled domestic violence is struggling to carpet her new home, this is a new start for her and the donators of Acts 435 have been so kind to her could she ask for help one more time for a living room carpet and then she will have one room completed, she would be so grateful to you all.
Single middle aged man, desperate for a new start, is due out from prison at the end of the week but has nowhere to live. He is being supported by a local Christian charity who is coming alongside him to help him get his life back together again. We know that if he leaves prison and ends up back on the streets, it will set him back, and we hope to provide him with temporary accommodation, start him with a new benefit claim, and help him back on his feet again. Thank You.
Joanne is a single-parent living with her three children aged 13, 10 and 4 in a mortgaged property and she is currently unemployed due to mental health problems. Joanne has a lot of rubbish which has accumulated in her house and garden and she would like to hire a skip to have the rubbish removed.

This 27 year old woman is a single parent of a one year old son. She became homeless after a relationship breakdown and spent time in a hostel. She has now moved into a flat which she is struggling to furnish. She is in receipt of universal credit and has no spare income. Various items have been sourced from a number of charities but she is still in need of a washing machine as she has no launderette nearby. Your help would be most appreciated.
My client has rent arrears in her current property after the move to Universal Credit. She is working out a replayment plan with the landlord, but is struggling as she is on beenfits and is very stretched. Any help towards reducing the arrears and keeping the landlord happy would be much appreciated! Thank you!
A gentleman has had to move accommodation due to health problems caused by his living conditions. He has no bed or appropriate bedding,please can Acts435 help.
This young mum of 3 (aged 4-10) has been living in temporary accommodation for the last 9 months, during which she has moved 11 times. A victim of domestic violence, she has now secured permanent accommodation, but as she only works part-time is struggling to afford the "man and van" to move her items from storage to the new property. She has found a company willing to do so for £120 and would really appreciate your support in setting up her new family home.
This gentleman has been homeless for a long time and now with support has obtained a flat this is a fresh start but sadly he has nothing for his new home, would Acts 435 be able to help him.
T has come to CAP for help with debts. She has problems with her son's behaviour. He has kicked in two internal doors. The housing association need these fixed before the end of the month. Please could you help.
J has been recovering from addiction. It is a long road. We are offering her debt help through CAP. She currently has rent arrears at the hostel where she lives. It would help her to keep a roof above her head to pay off the rent arrears.
