Ms D, who we have been helping for a couple of years, is struggling to pay off her debts but doing so very slowly. This week, as she opened her fridge, the door fell off. The fridge freezer is about 15 years old and seen better days. Ms D is asking for help to purchase a new/newer fridge freezer.
S is struggling financially having recently lost her job. She has 3 teenage children and a washing machine is essential. She currently rents a washing at a cost of over £15 per month. Having the funds to purchase her own would also improve her financial position.
S and her 11 year old daughter live in accommodation which is all electric heating. Recently S has been looking after her mum after hospitalisation and has accrued extra fuel bills.
S is working with Christians Against Poverty to sort some big debts, and they have recommended bankruptcy to write off her debts. She is living on a tight budget so there is not much spare for when things go wrong. Her fridge freezer is not working properly and we've found a second hand one to replace it, and are looking at funding to include the man and van to deliver. Also, some help with bus fares for coming into appointments in Exeter. Any help would be much appreciated.
Sue is working with Christians Against Poverty to sort her finances and they have recommended bankruptcy as the best way forward. Despite working full time her budget is very tight so it is taking a long time to save the fee; £680 total. It would be great to be able to help her with this last chunk, so any help would be greatly appreciated, thank you.
This young man is really struggling financially. He receives a very low income which is not enough to pay bills and eat. Please would you help him with a donation. Thank you.
The client came to us referred from the church as he is a member. He has recently lost his job and is running behind on his rent payments. This funding would enable him to reduce the pressure from his landlord and allow him to pay the rest off over the next few weeks.
D and S have struggled with debts for some time and are now working well with Christians Against Poverty. Their 10 year old son has a rare life-limiting illness, which his sister died of in 2008, and they can't afford for him to go on this school trip and would dearly love for him to be able to join his class mates on this five day adventure at a purpose-built facility. Instead of having to cancel this trip it would be amazing to facilitate him being able to go.
T is nearly 60 years old and has three children all under the age of 13. A few weeks ago T's wife died of terminal cancer. T reduced his hours of work when his wife was ill and he was caring for her, he has been struggling to manage to pay bills and feed the family. Any support would be greatly appreciated for this family at this difficult time.
This young lady is struggling with paying bills and is in debt. She received a food parcel from our food bank and then told us how much she is struggling financially. She is on a very low income and is finding it very hard to pay for gas and electricity. Please would you help this lovely lady with a donation. Thank you.
Hagar is a single mum looking after her children and the child of her older son. She has been moved from temporary home to temporary home in the last 6 years.

This young lad has a mother who suffers from mental health issues and his older brother is addicted to drugs and still lives in the family home. At the moment he is fostered out on the occasional weekend to get respite from his life at home. He desperately wants to join a local gym to give him an outlet for his frustrations. There is no money in the household to budget for this so I appealing to ACTS 435 to help.
A low income family we are working with have recently had their car broken into and lots of items stolen. They are struggling to pay for repairs and replacing stolen goods, as well as making ends meet with other monthly costs.
S has finally moved into a Housing Ass home after being in temp housing for 4 months. S works 18 hours a week as a cleaner but has to get the bus from the next town. S gets no benefits at all. As a result of her house moves, travel expenses and low income she is in debt. She is trying really hard to clear these debts by working with Citizen's Advice but this leaves her with no spare money to carpet her house. Her priority is her bedroom. Are you able to help her to do this one small thing?
This hardworking family have been working their way out of debt with CAP for almost 2 years, but have recently struggled to bring in enough money to cover the basics. Dad is now training as a driving instructor and needs to cover the trainee license fee in order to obtain the franchise. £120 will cover the vast majority of this one-off cost and so make a huge difference to the family.
T lives with her 3 children, the youngest who has just turned 1 and is now mobile. Social Services are engaging with the family as they require support and are in receipt of a very low income. T needs a couple of safety gates to ensure the safety of the youngest child but she is struggling to purchase these due to the lack of income. Please help this family towards the cost of two baby gates.
R has been an addict for years. She is a real success story as she is now clean and sober. Our local Christians Against Poverty centre is helping her to make a home for herself and her children. She needs a carpet in the children's room as the floor is bare concrete. The space is small so bunk beds would be ideal. We would be buying these second hand, your gift would be so helpful for this small, vulnerable family. Thank you.
