A refugee from Iraq is keen to improve her English and is asking for £120 to purchase a mobile smart phone and data so she can study more effectively for her college courses. She has no other means to research and practice her studies, and is aware that, with improved English, she can have a better chance of using her professional qualification and seek employment, which would give her life much more purpose. Please can you help her to have what she needs and to settle well in Leeds?

J attends our digital inclusion classes and has serious visual impairment, making it difficult for him to read computer screens. He is on benefits with a mortgage, three children, two disabilities and a disabled partner who is in a wheelchair. He volunteers with community organisations, despite these challenges. We would like to equip him with an iPad which will provide the accessibility features he needs. He is able to put £100 towards this and so we hope to cover the additional £150 for the model he needs.
Our client has found out he is terminally ill and has two months left to live, due to having cancer in his lungs, throat and spine. He is currently staying in a facility that is treating him with end of life care. With his health being so bad, he has no energy and cannot go to the communal areas to socialise and watch TV and is, therefore, stuck in his room. He would really benefit from having a TV in his room.
