S had to move out of her council flat as the roof collapsed because of damp. She has had to move to a hostel a long way from home and there is no end date yet. She is sharing a very small space with 2 teenage daughters and has no privacy. In addition she has no white goods and desperately needs a fridge and cooking utensils. Many of her belongings were made unusable by the damp and she is trying very hard to replace them. She would love to be able to store and cook fresh food again.
This single mum is finally decorating her bedroom, but has no money to purchase a carpet. She lives in a 2 bed property, and has 3 boys. The youngest sometimes sleeps with Mum. She says it would be a treat to have a carpet, and would feel warmer, as the winter will soon be upon us.

They have found an ideal place to move, but need help to move in. Her sight has deteriorated over the past 6 months and he has had a fall and a broken arm.

D has been a victim of domestic abuse from her ex-husband. His financial abuse meant she went into debt and rent arrears. D. believed that she was going to move, so she sold her cooker to try and pay off her rent arrears but her transfer is taking a lot longer than anticipated. She would like to buy a cooker so she and her 5 year daughter are not having to depend on friends and foodbanks. D is on Universal Credit and in heavy debt and rent arrears so is unable to afford the cost of a cooker.
This lady lives in private rented accommodation and has had to move 3 times in the last 4 years. Her current landlord has decided to sell his property.

This young client is in his first tenancy. His bathroom was flooded by the flat upstairs and he does not have contents insurance and his flooring is sodden. He is really upset, as he saved up and managed to get a cheap off cut of laminate. He would like £120 to rectify the damage and get some cheap flooring. This money would be paid direct to the flooring company and he will make arrangement to collect and fit it himself to save funds.

A young Bangladeshi family with 3 little boys have just been granted asylum and indefinite leave to remain in the UK. They have been living in a 3rd floor flat and have recently been given their first real home, which they hope to move in to soon. However the house has not been occupied for months and has been neglected. It is smokey, dirty, needs redecorating and the garden is overgrown and has no fence making it unsafe for the boys to play in. £120 would help make the house a home.
This 40 year old lady became homeless when her relationship broke down. She moved into a privately rented home with her baby but the housing benefit does not cover all of her rent.

She has been sleeping on the floor for the past 10 months which is now giving her a lot of back pain. She would be most grateful for any help.
