Laura is a single lady who has very poor health and suffers from some mental health issues also. Due to a lack of organisation she has fallen into rent arrears. She is now receiving help from Access Dorset a charity that assists vulnerable people so if she can get straight Access Dorset will make sure she keeps on top of her bills going forward. If she can't find the arrears she is in danger of losing the roof over her head.
A is a young pregnant lady who lives with her partner, who both work as low paid carers. Unfortunately due to illness before and during her pregnancy her sick pay has been used up so she has no money coming in. She is relying on Foodbank. She is in rent arrears and although has been able to save alittle amount, it is not enough. She is in despair how to improve her life, for both of them, but especially for her baby.
This man has had to have a knee operation and is therefore off work sick. He's self-employed so he loses his income. He's getting some universal credit but it only covers rent and council tax. He has two boys and not enough money to cover everything. We've given food parcels and some household items: some money on his electricity card would be really helpful to get them through this recovery period until he can get back to work.
D and his partner are just starting to work with Christians Against Poverty so money is tight and now the cooker has given up. D has health problems and needs regular dialysis. They would be so grateful if donors could help them buy a new cooker.
