C is on a very low income. He suffers from mental health issues including depression. His very old cooker has finally failed apart from one ring. His health and general well-being would benefit from him being able to cook healthy meals. Please can you help him to buy a replacement cooker?
B is in a low income, part-time job. B has just had a big operation on his knee and this is affecting his physical abilities. He is not on benefits and is being assisted by Bournemouth Churches Housing Association and his local foodbank. B only has two sets of clothes and really needs shoes, a coat and warm clothing, especially with winter coming. Any help you could give B in buying some much needed clothes would be very gratefully received. Thank you.
P is homeless and living on his son's sofa. He is on a low income and is struggling to make ends meet. He is being supported by his local food bank. P only has two sets of clothes and really needs some help to buy some additional clothes for the winter, including shoes and a warm coat. Any help you could give P to buy some much needed clothes would be very much appreciated. Thank you.
This lady had a stroke in December and has been unable to work until very recently. As a result of this she has built up debts and is working with Christians Against Poverty to address this. She also had to move to a smaller flat to save money. The flat only has a fridge so she's unable to cook or freeze anything and can only do small shops, which is expensive. Please could you help so that she can buy a new fridge with a freezer compartment. Thanks very much!
G is a 58 year old man who has been unwell for while. He has recently been diagnosed with terminal pancreatic cancer. The prognosis is likely to be limited. His wife has had her working hours reduced due to Covid 19 and they are struggling financially. Please help them to purchase a new cooker as they are unable to afford one on their limited budget and their old one broke. It would really help them in this difficult time. Thank you.
This lady's machine blew up. She is on Employment Support Allowance and has some chronic health issues. She does some cleaning jobs when she is well enough. She received a washing machine donation recently from a local charity but sadly the machine was faulty and her clothes have been ruined with black residue. So I am applying on her behalf for £140 which will pay for a refurbished machine with parts guarantee purchased from and fitted by local business. Her quality of life would be much improved, thank you.
P has been on sick leave from work for a year, initially with depression. When she was ready to return she couldn't as she has diabetes so was at risk of covid 19. Her statutory sick pay stopped 6 months ago and now she is being laid off. She is applying for Universal Credit but the bills are mounting up. She cannot use her phone until that bill is paid. Her anxiety levels are very high. Please can you help her get her phone in use again so she can access the help she needs.
L and husband B have 5 children, 4 of which are still at home. She has health issues and mobility issues and he is her carer as well as partner. Both washing machine and tumble dryer have broken which means daily trips and expenses at the launderette. A washing machine is being sourced but L is struggling with her battles with addiction and keeping her children safe and well. She is fully engaging with us and children's services, and your support would be so welcome to ease this lady's daily pressures.
J is currently in recovery and would like a tablet so that she can attend online meetings for AA and Map as part of her recovery process. This would give her more support. She would also like to complete online parenting classes to help her with her children. Thank you for your help.
