T is a young man who has recently left a 24/7 Mental Health residential and hasn't lived alone before. He is feeling isolated and would love to return to studying. He has worked in retail, hospitality and the care sector and wants to gain more qualifications. He is requesting a laptop which will enable him to access online courses. His long term plans mean he needs to improve his English and Maths. In addition a laptop would help him keep in touch with family, including his 3 children.
C is in substandard housing which is having an impact on her mental health, meaning that her health worker has had to increase her medication. She doesn't have internet access at home and her current phone cannot connect to the internet. A new phone would enable her to access and bid for new housing accommodation, as well as accessing her GP online prescription. This would increase her chances of securing better accommodation and therefore improving her mental health.

This gentleman has come such a long way on his journey. Last year he tried to take his own life, since this episode he has been diagnosed with Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) and now has lots of support packages in place. He has recently been drawing and painting a lot and has done a few craft fairs, which has been really positive for him, and he is going to rent a shop in the local area to sell his art work. He is currently networking with his phone, but a computer would be the ultimate perfect end for this gentleman.

D is currently working his way out of debt with Christians Against Poverty as well as seeking employment. He lives alone in an extremely sparse flat with no decoration and very basic furniture.

In order to have a television in his flat, he would need to have a satellite dish installed so that he can receive a reception due to the area that he lives in. Currently he has no television and this has also been put on as a request. As winter approaches the comfort of a television will provide company for him as he lives very quietly alone.

We met J through our foodbank as he is a regular user. He explained to us that his mum has Alzheimer's and is currently in hospital. He is seeking help to buy a mobile phone, as the hospital won't let the mother go home until the care team have a mobile number they can contact him on, as he is the designated carer for his mum. Your support to buy a phone would be so appreciated. Thank you.
