G is a single mum with a 5 year old child and was recently given the opportunity to move a village closer to her family and friends.

B is a young lady who has just moved to her own tenancy and is seeking assistance to obtain suitable flooring for her kitchen and bathroom. She spent about 18 months living between her extended family and her partner's family until she was able to get her own tenancy. This unsettled period was due to the deteriorating relationship with her mother, making it impossible for them to live together. B now lives in a downstairs flat so suitable flooring would help keep her flat warmer and keep heating costs down. This would also help her make a home for herself and raise her self esteem and confidence to move forward with her life, and hopefully improve her relationship with her mother again.

J has 3 kids and is pregnant. They recently moved away from her husband who she had to take out an anti-molestation order against. She has struggled financially and although she is now paying her ongoing rent, the housing association will seek a warrant to evict them if the arrears are not cleared in full by mid December. She can't pay the money back so her only option is clearing the debt through a Debt Relief Order before mid-Dec. J is desperate not to lose her and her kids' home.

M lives alone with her small son. She is currently not allowed to work or receive benefits. Her husband lives abroad and works sporadically, sending her money when he can but she is really struggling to keep their flat warm for her little boy during this cold winter.
M has just moved into a new home after rough sleeping for 9 months, she's got most white goods through the council but has no carpets. Carpets would really help M make her place a home and start feeling comfortable in it. This would really help her transition from rough sleeping to being in a home she can take ownership over.
O and I have just moved into a home after being homeless. We would like to buy them a washing machine. We would love them to be able to make it a home and be self sufficient, this would really help them take ownership of their home and be less reliant on having to wash their clothes in other places where they would have to pay. This would also help them to be able to go out with clean clothes so they wouldn't be nervous or ashamed about going out in public with dirty clothes.
