£75 needed for a bedroom door and paint

K and her family have had to move out of their property due to a flood upstairs which caused the cooker to catch fire and lots of damage to the house. She is a single mum on benefits so her income is low and she is trying to manage the expense of sorting the house with continuing to put food on the table. She is hoping to move back in shortly but could do with some support to buy paint and an internal door for her teenage son's bedroom.

£150 needed for carpets and a TV

A has just moved into a new home after fleeing her previous address. Carpets would really help A settle in and enjoy being in the home more. She has been really struggling without any support groups up and running at the moment due to the Covid-19 lockdown and feels stuck with her own thoughts, so a TV would really help with this.

£150 needed for flooring

S has just moved into a new home after rough sleeping for a while. He's really happy to be in a flat but is struggling as there is a lot to do to make it homely. Money for flooring would go huge way into making it a long term solution and likely to keep S off the streets.

£150 needed for curtains and blinds

This is for a mum and her two young children. The family moved just before lockdown to a two bedroom flat. They have had temporary window coverings (blankets and towels) throughout lockdown. Now with shops opening they can purchase suitable window coverings. This flat is much better for the children as they can have their own bedroom. Mum is a single parent who normally manages her finances very well but the extra costs of moving have stretched the family budget considerably.
