£100 needed for an electric cooker

K has had to stop work due to very poor health and is a single mum of three children. Her cooker has completely broken so she is having family members cooking meals for her and the children a couple of times a week and dropping them on her doorstep. Otherwise, they are surviving on sandwiches and snacks. Any help you could offer to get a new cooker would be so gratefully received.

£80 needed for repairs to home

This mum suffers from poor mental health and her son displays challenging behaviour, including causing criminal damage in the home. He punches walls when he is angry. The damage to the house really impacts mum's emotional well being. She cannot afford for the repairs to be completed. She would love some help to purchase plaster board, plaster, paint, and wood etc. The idea is that her son will help mum with the repairs to repair the harm and apologise for causing the damage.

£50 needed for winter clothing

Mr S was admitted to hospital in April which resulted in a leg amputation. After his operation he was in a care home for 4 months and now has been given a new tenancy. Changing over his benefits has meant he has experienced hardship and he has also had to buy white goods etc. He has very little money left and requires winter clothing. He would normally go to a charity shop but these are all closed and the weather is very cold - most of his clothing was lost in hospital and the care home. Please help.

£75 needed for travel costs for hospital appointments

J has been sofa surfing but was attacked and robbed where she was living and she is receiving treatment for the serious burns from that. She is now wheelchair-bound and living with a friend far from the hospital, so attending her appointments is difficult and she is afraid to use public transport. The hospital is unable to help with travel and they have been going without food to pay for taxis. They now have no money for either. Please would you help her attend her last couple of appointments?

£150 needed for a bed and bedding

The client who moved into his accommodation 3 months ago is currently sleeping on the floor which has started to lead to back problems. The client had to leave his old place as it was infested with bed bugs meaning he had to leave all of his furniture behind. Originally he was glad to just be out of there but he has still yet to be able to purchase a bed because of his low income. This support would allow him to purchase a bed and bedding to go with it so he can finally have a good night's sleep.

£150 needed for a living room carpet

In June 2020 this lady was struck down with peripheral nerve disease affecting her mobility and causing almost constant pain. She was housebound in the flat she shared with her partner. The relationship has broken down, so she has moved into an assisted living facility. The flat is bare and she has no income due to benefit delays. Her sister is helping with food and household items, but cannot afford a fitted living room carpet, which would make such a difference to her comfort in the flat.
