Mr W is 65 and is due to retire in May 2021. He moved to Liverpool at the beginning of the pandemic so has been unable to look for work. He receives a small pension and a small amount of Universal Credit towards his rent. He has had an accident and lost 3 of his bottom teeth, and only has 2 remaining. He is unable to pay to go to the dentist, and he gets no free treatment as the pension is above the minimum amount by about £10. We are hoping to raise some funds to put towards the treatment for a denture to raise his spirits.
K is working with Christians Against Poverty to sort her debts. She is on a debt management plan and is living on a tight budget whilst paying off what she owes. Her car is in the garage for an MOT and although she isn't anticipating any large issues she is struggling to pay the bill. Any help would be much appreciated.
S was working, but her hours were reduced, she was then furloughed and finally made redundant. She hadn't been with the company long enough to get any redundancy pay and has been struggling to pay her bills since March. She hoped that it would improve but as she was already in debt, things just got worse. Citizens Advice have advised her to apply for a Debt Relief Order, but she cannot afford the £90 court fee. Please help if you can and then S can have the fresh start she needs. Thank you.
C has lived in his flat for a couple of years now but still has no carpets. He is unemployed and although in receipt of Universal Credit it does not give him enough to put money to one side for such large items like carpet. He says he feels like he is living in a cave! Having a carpet would make his room feel warmer and he feels sure he could buy a cut off piece and fit it himself.
C has issues with his health and he has lost his job. His current bed is old and very uncomfortable for him. He is also over 6 feet tall which means he needs a double bed rather than a single bed so that he has room. He is on benefits but has been self isolating so he has been paying more to have his food delivered from a local shop, which is more expensive than buying normally. He therefore has no spare money to buy a new bed and is really struggling. Please help him if you can. Thank you.
B is currently not working due to suffering with sever depression following a bereavement. B is struggling with her finances. She has considerable debts that she is trying to manage. She does not like to leave her home as her shoes are worn out and does not have a winter coat. B would like to have some new shoes and a winter coat. Any help you could give her would be really appreciated.
M is on a low income and in financial difficulty, she is receiving advice to help with debts such as rent and council tax. M is very worried and nervous about what the future holds. M would like to look for other work in order to help ease the situation but she does not have a laptop to job search. £150 towards a laptop would mean that M could start to search for jobs that may increase her income to help pay off her debt. This would secure the roof over her head and give her a fresh start.
D has overcome much adversity - from child abuse to a career ending injury as semi-professional footballer. He has supported many as a foodbank volunteer over the pandemic. He has just been placed in temporary accommodation outside of his home borough while he waits to bid for a permanent council property and now spends all of his money on travel costs to get back and forth to care for his elderly mother and his volunteer duties. Your donation would really help D right now until he is re-housed.
