We met a young chap a few months ago who had been on and off rough sleeping for a long time - we put him in emergency accommodation and since then we have managed to rehouse him in secure accommodation. We have helped him with his status application, he was a heroin user, we have helped him get back on his script and come away from heroin. In the meantime he has been quite down with nothing to do as he has no benefits. We want to buy him a TV to bless him as this will be a huge benefit to him.
We have been supporting a gentleman from Slovakia who has been immensely involved as a victim of human trafficking and exploitation since he came to the UK 10 years ago. We have helped him to come out of this lifestyle by putting things in place. He currently lives in a dingy flat with no internet or television. He has recently been tested positive for Covid-19 so is isolating. We want to purchase him a TV to help him get through this period of self isolation.
S is a recent prison leaver who is engaging in our Workout programme. He is really keen to get into training and employment, however a barrier to this is being unable to access emails and search for jobs online. He would also like to be able to access his CV and attend online training courses. We have recently supported S into new accommodation and worked on his CV and disclosure, he is keen to transform his life and get into employment.
E arrived in the UK 6 months ago from his home country Eritrea to seek asylum. He has applied to study at Leeds City College so that he can improve his English. So that he can study at the college, he needs to purchase a laptop. As an asylum seeker, he is living on asylum support payments of £37 per week and so can't afford to buy this for himself. Any support would be greatly appreciated.

We have been working with a family in Edinburgh for around 9 months. Mum struggles with poor mental health and has found lockdown has increased her isolation. We have been donated a laptop from a local university which will allow mum and her son to connect with friends and family and allow mum to join parents' meetings for school which are currently online. The family need an operating licence for the laptop but they don't have the funds for this as mum is unable to work due to health reasons.
