This young person came to us following an abusive relationship on a homeless referral. With very little support around her from family and being quite withdrawn, she is engaging really well and starting to open up. Her confidence is growing and she is thinking about courses and volunteering in the local community. Her property is very basic and although she has her basic items she would benefit from some furnishings, curtain poles and crockery to make the home more suitable.
We have a tenant who has been looking for accommodation for over a year and has finally managed to secure his own flat. He has priced up a removal van for £30 to move all of his belongings. Could you help him to pay for this? He is struggling to source the money himself.
This client was made homeless after she managed to escape a relationship where she suffered domestic violence. She has just been given a flat, but she needs to pay the first two weeks' rent in order to secure the flat and move in. She cannot afford this, so can you help her to have a fresh start in life?
We are supporting a Mum in Derby with many health concerns. This is due to her having problems with maintaining her flat, which has eventually got on top of her. Now her boy is not allowed to live in their home. We would like £120 for a skip so that she can have a big clear out of her clutter and begin to get her home in a condition so that her boy can move back in again.
This 42 year old mum of 5 children was made homeless on New Year's Eve. Currently they are sharing a house with a family of 6 and conditions are so cramped, they really need somewhere of their own. There is one house currently available, however the landlord wants £1000 for a deposit. Mum is finding it too difficult to raise all of the deposit whilst paying for bills and feeding herself and kids. Mum would be very grateful for help to pay this small amount towards the deposit as she is hoping to pay the rest.
My client is currently receiving no Universal Credit through no fault of his own, we have welfare rights working on his behalf to correct this however in the mean time he has moved into supported housing and has no food or basic household items to live independently. Could you donate to help him get some food and household goods until we can sort this out?
My client had previously had her own tenancy before moving into supported housing due to becoming crippled in debt. She was made redundant from work leaving her with no money and due to her mental health could not cope with this. She has some old debt she would like help paying off, this would really help her to make a fresh start. Thank you.
This Mum of 4 young children had to flee an abusive relationship and is homeless. She has been living with a family relative in a small house for a few months, but has now been offered her own house. After borrowing and paying all she can for flooring and to make the house livable, she is asking for help to buy oil so she can move in and heat it.
This Dad of 4 young children is currently in the process of moving into new accommodation. They have no flooring or carpets fitted. He has to find all items to furnish and equip their new home. Dad is working and is just about managing to make ends meet. Helping this family to lay flooring/carpets will be such a blessing to them during this stressful time.
A family with two young children live in a property in desperate need of redecorating. They are on a very limited budget so would greatly appreciate any help towards buying paint and other essential equipment to get the place looking more like a family home and less like a building project!
This young person has come through the care system and has been homeless for quite a while. He has just been given access to a flat, but has very little to get started. He would really appreciate some help with electricity bills to get him on his feet while he tries to make a successful fresh start for himself.
This 39 year old lady is a mother of two. Her home has recently had a pest infestation. She really needs some new wardrobes so that she can protect her clothing from the pests, but she is unable to afford this herself. She would be so grateful for any help you can give her.
