M was made redundant a month ago and is very actively seeking work. He and his partner have 1 child and another due in a month. They are existing on Child Benefit and Child Tax Credits. They pay a high rent for a cold draughty Cornish cottage. They are on the council housing list. Rather than get into rent arrears they are paying the rent and using the food bank to eat.They cannot use the central heating as they have no oil. Please help them get some before the baby arrives.
M was made redundant a month ago and is actively seeking work. He, his pregnant partner and 2 year old are surviving on Child benefit and Child Tax Credit. They pay high rent on a cold draughty Cornish cottage. The rent takes most of their benefits so are using the Foodbank to get food. They are heating only one room with an electric heater at present but this means they have just received a big electric bill . Please help them pay this and keep at least 1 room warm and damp free .
Terry has diabetes and frequent ulcers on his feet, he had a stroke in 2016 and has other medical conditions. He lives with his partner and 2 children (aged 13 and 14 years), one child has ADHD and the other child has learning difficulties. He would like help to decorate his home, as he and his partner are on Universal Credit, and have no other means of income or family support. Any donations would be gratefully received. Thank you.
A young man who studied dance up to diploma level is now looking for a job but is not on Job Seeker's allowance. He wants to attend dance lessons run by a local organisation and register for a regional dance competition. He has very limited support from his family but no income from anywhere else. He is so keen and is passionate about dance. He believes these lessons can help him to further develop his skills, contacts and pursue his dreams.

The client came to us referred from the church as he is a member. He has recently lost his job and is running behind on his rent payments. This funding would enable him to reduce the pressure from his landlord and allow him to pay the rest off over the next few weeks.
This hardworking family have been working their way out of debt with CAP for almost 2 years, but have recently struggled to bring in enough money to cover the basics. Dad is now training as a driving instructor and needs to cover the trainee license fee in order to obtain the franchise. £120 will cover the vast majority of this one-off cost and so make a huge difference to the family.
