J has already received help from generous Acts 435 donors to buy a cooker but needs further help to cover delivery and fitting of the item. She has severe mental and physical health issues. When we initially visited the lady we found the house in such a bad state and she wasn't eating properly. We have continued to support her from the foodbank and things seem to be improving.
J had a stroke last year which has really affected her lifestyle. As a result she has had to apply for benefits but until this comes through she is having to survive on the bare minimum. Her bed has recently broken and she is unable to replace this herself. Please help her to do this so she can sleep properly at night.
Last year L was working as a support worker in a care home. He became unwell with gout and some days could not walk, so lost his job. At the same time his divorce came through and he fell into deep depression. He took loans out to cover his rent and bills causing debts to build quickly then in March attempted suicide. L is now sticking to a very tight budget . He has signed on to benefits and is getting support for his mental health. A Debt Relief Order would help lift the burden of debt.
Our advocate is supporting a man who has just been given secure accommodation for two years through the charity Hope into Action. He is currently off work due to ill health and is awaiting Universal Credit payments. He is without money so a gift of £60 would help him to cover the cost of gas and electric bills that he shares with the other tenant for the next couple of weeks until benefit payments are made. Thank you.
£90 is needed to supply and fit a car battery for this young woman. She is aged 28 is struggling with both physical and mental health. Her partner abused her for years until she fled to a refuge. Her two daughters, now aged 5 and 7, were removed into care and she did not see them for two years.
