A couple on a single working income have not had carpet in their bedroom for two years as they've not been able to afford it since one of them became ill with depression. They don't want to face another cold winter with a bare floor. A gift of £150 would enable them to fund a carpet for their bedroom and would so appreciate your support. Thank you so much for your kindness.
A couple who have been attending our community fridge to supplement their food shopping are living on Universal Credit and working with Christians Against Poverty. They would like to buy a second hand sofa. The gentleman has problems with a narrowing spine and is often in pain. Your donations towards the cost of buying and delivering a sofa from a charity shop would really help him as his current one is no longer fit for purpose. Thank you.
C is a lovely man working with Christians Against Poverty. He got into debt in his early twenties when he developed psychosis. He became unable to manage his life and because he was so vulnerable, people took advantage of him financially. C got the help he needed and he has been stable now for three years. He is now really focussed on clearing his debt and starting afresh. Your donation would be a message of encouragement.
M lives with her husband and 5 children. They are dependent on benefits due to ill health and they have struggled to pay their bills. The family is being threatened with eviction and urgently need to be able to take control of their finances. M is now getting money advice and we believe a Debt Relief Order is the best option to help her to clear her debts. This would help her to be able to afford to pay her ongoing bills and make a fresh start.
This lady has very complex mental health issues. She was living with her elderly mum and was required to move out due to an eviction notice being served when rules within sheltered housing were altered. We are currently working with her family to support her. Due to the issues this lady is facing support with temporary accommodation would be a real blessing to her. She is keen to work with us and other services to help move on to the next stage in her journey.
L has requested help to buy a second hand mobility scooter. She is a single mother to 4 boys all in nursery or primary school and she needs help to get them to get around. L has a bone disorder and finds walking incredibly painful and is not able to walk very far at all. She is in receipt of universal credits and personal independent payment benefit but will struggle to pay in full herself. If you are able to help this family I know she would be grateful.
E has been suffering with depression and anxiety following the death of her partner who she nursed through cancer. E is working with Christians Against Poverty and their advice is for a Debt Relief Order to help her find freedom from unmanageable debt. It would take E a long time to save this money so would really help if it could be paid for her.
