We have been working with L who is struggling with her mental health. As a result, this has had a negative impact on her fifteen year old son who has become very withdrawn. Mum has been unable to afford gym membership for her boy and this is something that he would really like to do. We would love to be able to get six months junior membership for this lad as it would help him immensely and build his confidence. Any help would be sincerely appreciated.
This elderly gentleman has recently been housed by the council after a time of homelessness. He became homeless after his retirement from the NHS where he was living in hospital accommodation. His new flat is unfurnished and our Church is sourcing household items to equip him with the essentials. The floors are bare and would benefit from some carpet to keep the flat warm. It's estimated that £300 would cover the cost of new carpets. Our Church would match fund the extra £150. Thank you.
We have become aware of this young man whom our church are helping a lot. He has major mobility issues, due to nerve damage, so a scooter would enable him to leave his house to do normal activities such as shopping, seeing friends and not being reliant on others all the time. This young man is in receipt of Personal Independence Payment and Universal Credit. He is unable to work and we are helping him with some of the cost. He has some funds available; however, we would be grateful for any help you could give this young man.
This lady is struggling to manage on her pension. She lives with, and cares for, her autistic daughter and is herself being treated for bowel cancer. Her illness means she needs to bathe and do washing daily, but her washing machine has broken down. She is receiving help from her local church and the Foodbank, but hates having to ask. She has brought up seven children alone after being widowed and never thought that she would be worse off as a pensioner. She would be so grateful for your support.
J has had a traumatic life, having been a victim of sexual assault, held at gunpoint with her two young sons during an armed raid, and suffering violent relationships. Her mental health has suffered greatly due to this. Both her parents have passed away and, more recently, her best friend was killed following a vicious attack. Jane understandably suffers with Post Traumatic Stress Disorder, which has only been exasperated by all of this. We believe that bereavement counselling will hugely benefit her wellbeing.
