£150 needed for decorating

This 42 year old woman was homeless and a sex worker. During Covid-19 she has been sleeping virtually on the streets and working. We came across her on outreach giving out bags of hope, and after a lot of work from Mash and the church, she now has her first flat. She has nothing in it, we have collected some items for her and people have been very generous but please can we help her with decorating costs? This will help her mental health.

£120 needed for household items

This couple have come into the foodbank and have been to a church service when we are open. They had to leave their home town in the south because the man was beaten up several times badly and was threatened, the police agreed this was a good decision. So they moved up and left all their things. They now live in temporary accommodation but they don't have their own duvet cover, they have 1 towel and no pots and pans, kettle, toaster, cutlery etc. so they need household items.

£135 needed for flooring

N has recently moved into a property after a period of homelessness. Unfortunately the property does not have any carpet fitted in it. He has been noticing that without carpet the property has been becoming quite cold. He does not have a lot of money and finds that he has to put the heating on more often then he wishes. He states that he feels the property would be warmer if he had carpet in it.

£130 needed for a deposit for a flat

The man that we are supporting was someone like you and me. He lost his job and his home 2 years ago. Due to this he has been rough sleeping with his little dog. He has always attended our soup kitchens and never been in the right place to engage. We have been able to engage him by helping his dog as we have volunteer vet that does a health check. We have found him a flat, and he now needs help to raise funds for his deposit. It is really tricky trying to find a place with a pet so we are determined to lock this flat down ASAP. Thank you for your support.

£150 needed for food, energy costs and roof repairs

Earlier in the year, K had an incident which has left its scars on her health and on her finances. A man visited her house, got up onto the roof and wreaked havoc by smashing up slates and breaking down the chimney pots. K knew the man and had allowed him into the house, so her landlord is making her pay for the damage, which is costing her £50 a month. This is leaving her short, and she often has several days each month with no food, gas or electricity. She is at the end of her tether and help with these costs would be a real blessing.

£150 needed for a bed and other essential household items

J has been homeless for 18 months. He has no support and not even many friends to help him at this difficult time. J has thankfully recently been offered accommodation from the council and will hopefully be moving in once the tenancy agreement is signed. After being homeless for so long, J has nothing and so will be starting afresh completely. He will need absolutely everything but has prioritised needing a bed and any other essentials he can get. Can you help him with the cost of this?

£90 needed for a Debt Relief Order

K suffers from multiple health problems and has poor mobility, making it difficult for her to get about. She has particular problems with access to her flat which is upstairs. She really needs a ground floor property but the local council won’t consider it until rent arrears, owed from many years ago, are settled. K cannot afford to pay the debt and has been advised to apply for a Debt Relief Order. This would enable her to move to more suitable accommodation. Sadly, she cannot afford the fee and would appreciate any help.
