D is working with Christians Against Poverty to deal with her debts. She has recently found employment but has no coat for the winter. As the cold approaches, it would be great if anyone felt able to contribute to helping her get to work appropriately dressed. Thank you.
A is suffering from osteoporosis, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease and vascular dementia. He and his wife are in debt and have moved into a house on our estate that they cannot furnish properly. They have also had to use the local food bank when they have had no food in their home. They have recently acquired a mini cooker, but it would be tremendously helpful to have a reliable washing machine and not to have to rely on a kindly neighbour to do their washing for them.
A is a single mum with a 6 year old boy. She is training to be a social worker. She is struggling to manage financially at present because of a delay in receiving this term's college bursary. This is due to problems at the college she is studying, and having to find a new tutor for her course. She cannot easily work at present, to bring in income, as this would have to be at weekends and she would then have to find childcare for her son. She would be very grateful for your help with food and bills in the short term.
L and her partner are both unable to work due to autism. They live independently in their rented flat, and survive on limited benefits. L has £31 deductions each month on her Universal Credit, relating to an over payment of benefits. She also has £120 arrears on her electric smart meter, so £3 of every £10 put in gets taken to clear debt. They have no other debts, but due to these two problems they are needing to use Food banks to survive. £120 would clear their electric arrears and help them stay independent.
This single Mum, with a sixteen year old disabled son, has had to stop working due to mental health issues. There has been a delay in getting her Limited Capacity For Work Payments and as a result she has got into debt and can't pay her water company bills. Please could you help to clear her water bill arrears?
D is a Christians Against Poverty client and is working with them to sort out her debts. She has recently had surgery and now needs to build her muscles again before further post-op surgery. She is booked in for aqua aerobics but needs a swimming costume that will fit her altered body shape. Please consider making a donation so she can continue on her road to recovery. Thank you
M is looking after her granddaughter full time at her house, as the mother has mental health problems. Her son (the father) is currently out of work, and the mother is not willing to share any child care benefits she receives towards the cost of her daughter. M has to find the funds for school costs, school lunches and cost of driving her granddaughter to school, which she would be very grateful for your help with.
