E is a single parent of a 17-year-old. E is registered disabled and in receipt of carer assistance, with a number of medical conditions. These include mental health, epilepsy, osteoarthritis and impaired mobility. Their accommodation suffered damage due to a water leak and flooding, and her bedding and rug can't be salvaged. E would be so grateful to replace these items, especially as winter approaches, as they will provide warmth for her home.
K currently lives with his partner in his mother's home. His partner is pregnant and they have recently made a claim for Universal Credit. His mother's home is overcrowded and they are both sleeping on the floor. They have managed to find a suitable property, however there is an upfront cost of £85 to secure this. Due to awaiting their first payment of benefit, they are unable to find the funds to pay this. Please help this young couple with the cost to enable them to have their own home.
A man has been referred to us by a Reverend, as he has been homeless for several nights, escaping violent family conflict. He needs access to emergency accommodation until a longer term solution can be found. We are helping him deal with the situation as he just needs a little bit of assistance.
K has a gap where her flat-mate has moved out of the house and a new flat-mate will be moving in in November. K is unemployed and looking for work. Her Universal Credit Benefit does not cover the full amount of the month's rent. She is really in a desperate situation and this gift would help her to keep going until her new flat-mate moves in.
This is a request to be able to obtain some carpets for a young man who I support. He has recently moved to his first tenancy and is in the process of setting up home. His sole income is Universal Credit. Money is tight and he only just survives on the money he gets, so saving for carpets is beyond his means. He has no financial support from family members as his Mother died when he was a child and his Dad lives some miles away out of the borough. He really is doing it on his own. Thank you.
Could you donate to help a family make a new start? As a charity we are supporting a family who have been through an extremely turbulent time. The abuser within the family is now in prison, and the whole family are trying to start afresh in a new home. They finally feel safe and have somewhere permanent to live. We are trying to raise £120 to help them set up this home, to decorate it and make the children’s bedrooms nice in time for Christmas.
A has been through a very difficult time and has been homeless for over a year. Sometimes she has been able to stay with friends but often has had to sleep rough. She has struggled to get any support and has survived largely by her own determination. After being let down many times, she has managed to get a flat. She has got together most of the money she needs for the bond, but would appreciate help with raising the rest. It would give her a real chance to get her life back on track.
This gentleman was rendered homeless after he became ill and was unable to continue working at the job he had had for 10 years. Unable to pay his rent, he lost his home. For a while he was sofa surfing but eventually ended up on the streets. He was referred to a night shelter this year from where, after 7 months, he was able to move into his flat. He is so excited to have his own place again and has been busy painting it to make it homely. Now he would just love some carpet to finish it off.
This client is a single mother of four children, and she has recently moved from supported accommodation to her own unfurnished tenancy. She has received a Community Support Grant locally providing her with beds and white goods as she had none herself, however she has no storage for her and her children's clothing. She is on a very low income as her only sources are Universal Credit and Child benefits, so she has no money spare to buy a wardrobe after paying for essentials such as food.
This 69 year old lady retired to Tenerife with her husband where they rented a furnished flat. Sadly he died, after only 10 months of retirement, leaving her alone and far from home. She suffers from anxiety and panic attacks and did not cope well alone. She is now back in the UK living with her daughter and has been allocated a council bungalow. Apart from a bed, she has no furniture or white goods. Her only income is state pension so she would benefit greatly from any help to purchase a reconditioned cooker. This is the second request on the lady's behalf, the other being for help to purchase a fridge/freezer.
J needs to move closer to his parents as his father has recently been diagnosed with terminal cancer. He has also been getting constant hassle from youths who have been throwing things at his window, including fireworks. It's a very distressing time for J who has also been struggling with mental health issues relating to being unemployed. He has found somewhere to move to but he can't afford the costs of the removals.
This man has been homeless for some time. He was sleeping on friends' sofas but has been living in a tent over the summer. As it is getting colder and it rains more, he is very keen to have a place of his own. He is on benefits and has little spare money for a deposit. Please would you help him to make a fresh start with a donation. It would make a huge difference to him and will show him that he is cared for and not abandoned. Thank you.
This man is on a low income. He is in debt and would like help to pay some bills. He has also been asked by the Housing Association to repaint his flat. He receives only £300 per calendar month on Universal Credit so struggles to make ends meet. (This is half of what he received previously when on Employment and Support Allowance.) He has nothing spare to buy paint or clear his debts. A donation would really help him as he does not want to risk losing his flat. Thank you.
Having worked with Christians Against Poverty to clear their debts, this lady and son had to make an urgent house swap. The new house was not fully equipped and the oven needs to be fitted. With only a low income, support from Acts would enable her to get the oven fitted and to purchase one or two other basic household items.
J is currently unemployed and has recently moved into Social Housing. He is yet to receive any benefits, so he has no income at present. He has accessed the foodbank, so he does have food to eat, but he is in need of help to purchase basic items for his new home such as a kettle, plates and other essentials.
This young person has recently left foster care and has found herself a new flat. We are helping her to finalise setting this up, and she is in need of flooring for the hallway and the kitchen. The flooring will help to keep her warm, as well as make her new flat feel more homely. However she cannot afford it. Please consider giving to this girl as she starts life as an adult.
F is working but with very limited wage. He recently moved to a new unfurnished flat. He managed to buy few second hand items but can't afford to buy the essencial items like fridge, cooker and carpet due to the lack of money. He is very desperate. Any help would be much appreciated. Thank you.
This 23 year old sister is caring for her 3 younger siblings. They are struggling financially but need a fridge freezer as their current one is failing them and causing them extra costs to run it. A new fridge freezer would really help them! Please could you help this family and alleviate added pressure?
D is disabled with severe arthritis and is wheelchair bound, she also has depression and anxiety. She's been evicted due to her landlord not paying her rent forward. She has been given a flat because it isn't her fault, but isn't able to move in until there is a carpet in there. There is nothing at all but we are hoping that if we can help with some of the other essential goods, that you might help her with a carpet? Thank you so much!
