This client is a middle aged man who is on a low income as he is caring for his aged mother. He needs help to replace her cooker which broke over the Christmas holidays.

Please could you help us to help this conscientious son.
A is an elderly gentlemen and has been very unwell. He has very few people that he can rely on. He suffers with incontinence, which means he regularly has to replace clothing. He currently cannot afford to buy any clothing because he is in serious financial difficulty. A £100 gift voucher from Marks and Spencer would mean that he can buy some much needed essentials.
R lives alone and has learning difficulties. He tries to be as independent as possible however this can be difficult due to him living on a low income. He has lived in his flat for 3 years and he still does not have access to a washing machine. This is affecting his personal hygiene as he is washing his clothes in the bath which are not being cleaned properly. He has an income of £75 per week which includes food and heating. Please help this gentleman with the cost of a second hand washer.
J is a client with Christians Against Poverty, she has been repaying her debt. She has become ill, and it has been found she is sleeping on the floor as she has no bed or mattress. She is not likely to get well, her condition will deteriorate over time, could you help her by providing the money for a bed and a wardrobe to put her clothing in? She has not disclosed her full situation until now and we would like to make sure she is comfortable and can relax as her condition progresses. Thank you.
This client was referred to us by local social services after her energy prices recently went up. She had been using extra layers in her property - which was described as freezing cold by the social worker - to keep herself warm because of the unexpected bills. Her energy suppliers are in the process of changing over, however for these last few weeks the house will need heating while it is extremely cold. This support will go a long way in helping her remain safe and warm in the cold weather.
