My client, her husband and young baby have recently been given the opportunity to move into a new property after having lived in extremely poor conditions for the past year and a half. Their new home is much safer and better suited for a young family but is completely unfurnished. They are in need of financial support so that they can purchase essential household items that they are otherwise unable to afford, such as a washing machine and cooker.
This person is an asylum seeker, receiving just £39.63 per week and living without WiFi at the accommodation provided by the Home Office. He cannot afford large amounts of data which means he cannot attend his English classes online or other online activities. It also means he struggles to communicate with his family and friends and access information about his rights. He was brutally attacked by racists and struggles with his mental health as a result. This internet would be an enormous help.
Mrs M is asylum seekers with very limited money. She lives alone with her husband, who is not allowed to work, and has no financial support from family and friends. She would really appreciate financial help with mobile phone top up. She feels lonely as she can't talk to her family who lives in India. This support will help her to communicate with others and at least talk to her family. Thank you so much.
AH is a young refugee who has just been given a council property. It is completely unfurnished and he would like support to get a fridge/freezer. He lives on benefits, and the amount he receives is barely enough to meet his daily living needs. Your donation would help him greatly. Thank you.
This refugee has been given an opportunity to study English and asks for £150 towards the purchase of a laptop for a class he has recently been enrolled in. He has saved some of the funds to make the purchase but during the past few years this has been difficult. Please help him to have what he needs to study and settle well in Leeds.
This Iranian refugee has recently been given leave to remain and found accommodation to rent in Leeds. He is asking for help with £150 towards a tablet or laptop to help him study English and help with employability. The costs of rent and living costs have made it impossible for him to save much, but with your help he could afford a tablet or laptop. Please help him in his efforts to study English and settle in Leeds.
This 31 year old Iranian asylum seeker arrived in Leeds during the pandemic and has now been offered a place on an English course. He is asking for help for a refurbished tablet and data, which he will use to study. Please help him to have what he needs and to also have a way of connecting with his solicitor, his church community and the home office.
DA just moved to property and would like support to get a rug to sleep on and some bedding. He has back and heart issues, and he has previously been sleeping on carpet as it makes him feel better and pain free. The house has been moved to is laminate floor, while the previous one was carpet so he didn't have to have a rug. He is living on benefits so has no spare income for such items; your support will be greatly appreciated.
S is an asylum seeker and needs to recover some documents that she needs for her asylum claim. She can only do this by logging onto her Apple ID and she has lost her phone. This money would be so helpful to purchase a refurbished iPhone so she can obtain the documents and stay connected.
Our charity supports a mature Sudanese asylum seeker living in hostel accommodation for over a year. Due to depression and isolation he’s only recently felt able to go out and start meeting people. He learned about our walking and wellbeing groups and was encouraged to join and consider volunteering. He quickly did both! Sadly, he cannot afford to pay bus fares regularly so we are asking for a donation of £50 to buy a second hand bike to reduce travel costs. Thank you.
Our charity is working with a 20 year old Turkish asylum seeker who came to the UK in 2020. During 2021, he has volunteered with our charity and been involved with many of our activities. He is excited to finally be able to start college and his English education, but unfortunately he cannot afford to cover the cost of the three textbooks he needs for his course. We are asking for donations of £80 to buy him the textbooks he needs for his studies. Thank you.
Our charity works with a twenty year old Sudanese asylum seeker enrolled on an English for Speakers of Other Languages (ESOL) course. He is excited to attend in person to learn English. Despite bullets in his legs causing mobility issues, he uses buses to attend classes. Unfortunately, he cannot continue to cover the transport costs due to the limits of his asylum support funding. We are asking for a donation of £50 for a bus pass so he can continue to attend classes for 5 weeks. Thank you.
