K has been very ill in hospital, she has been able to come home temporarily but has to go back daily for treatment. She has to get a new bed as she needs one more suited to hospital treatment which can be raised up and lowered again. This would enable her to have treatment at home, keep her out of hospital for longer and give her a glimmer of hope. Can you help? Thank you!
IL has been diagnosed with OCD and she has anxiety regarding dirt. The springs on her sofa broke and she bought a 2nd hand replacement but it smells of cat urine and she would like to be able to have it cleaned. She has been given a price of £80.00 to clean the suite that she bought. She would be happy with this solution and she would be able to happily use the sofa then- thank you.
R has really struggled with his mental health over the last six months and has been in and out of hospital. He lost his job and has now got to face the financial difficulties that have resulted from this. After seeking help from citizens advice it has been recommended that he gets a debt relief order to get control over his debts, but he needs help with the fee.
J is desperate for a second chance! Following a traumatic childhood and unsettled life he turned to drink to forget about his problems and his life. He tried to start afresh many times but either help hasn't been there or he's not been truly ready. He came to us with support who are helping him back to a healthy life, one he's longed for. He has so many hurdles in his way, debts being one. Getting a debt relief order would give him that fresh start so he can focus on the other areas of his life.
J is from Belfast and has 2 children in York. He has a partner who was in Scotland while he was in York and she was rushed into hospital and is in critical care in Dumfries. He needed to go and see her but didn't have the fare. We helped him with this trip but he will be travelling between York and Dumfires again and this request is to fund those travel costs.
L has been asked to move out of her current accommodation due to it being in a very poor state of repair. The alternative accommodation provided has no cooker or carpets and L does not have means to provide these herself. She is on benefits and in poor health and has no family. She has tried to obtain a loan but has been turned down. L is very distressed about having to move, and having a carpet and cooker would really help soften the blow.
E and her husband were managing ok until he suffered a stroke. He can no longer work, he has limited mobility and his short-term memory is very poor so he can't be left alone. They receive Child Benefit and Child Maintenance for their son but until their claim for Universal Credit comes through they have no other income. Bus fares for their many hospital appointments are adding to their money worries and help with food, electric and travel costs would really support them through this time.
B had been coming to the centre for food parcels when he disclosed he was in debt and unable to pay his bills and regularly had little or no money left for food. B went on to explain that he had been debt free, but since the death of his mum his life had been turned upside down and he had suffered severe depression. Because of ill-health he had been sanctioned many times and now gets just £190 benefits because of so many attachments. Getting a debt relief order would give him a fresh start.
