This young single mum has been told by her social worker that if she doesn't make changes around the home to ensure her children's safety they may be taken into care. She is mum to three little boys under 5 years. Her middle child has a heart defect and she spends a lot of time at hospital appointments and admissions. She is very upset and wants to do all she can but struggles to make her money stretch. This extra expense is beyond her reach so your help would mean everything to her.

This family lives on benefits; the eldest child has special educational needs and mum has a new baby. The father is supportive but he is unable to work to mental health issues, as he has schizophrenia, ADHD, OCD and suffers from depression. They have bought bunk beds for the children but are finding it difficult to buy the mattresses. They have other needs, and another request with Acts 435 for a cooker, and are being supported by a local charity and a number of agencies, and need all the help we can give them. Thank You.
This 40 year old man has severe mental health problems, including depression and mood swings. He has not worked for 17 years and is on a disability benefit. He lives alone in a Housing Association property. He struggles to manage on a low income and his cooker only has one hob working. A local charity has agreed to provide a new cooker, but his bed is broken and he needs a replacement. £120 to buy one from a local supplier would be of enormous help to him.
This young family recently moved into a new home after living in supported housing. They have 3 children under the age of 4, and the middle child has just started toddling around. The floor is bare concrete; the cheapest flooring option is around £100 and they have no disposable income at present. One child has fallen on the concrete floor a couple times and parents are concerned he might really hurt himself, and also the other children are walking on the concrete which is hard to keep clean.

M comes to us for counselling and help with her debts. She has had a troubled past with an abusive relationship and then friends stealing from her.

D has epilepsy and diabetes which he struggles to control. His life fell apart when his Mum died unexpectedly 5 years ago, and this has made it more difficult for him to manage his health.

T and her partner are struggling with debt that she was left with by her previous, abusive partner- they are both working and in rented social housing. They have just started working with Christians Against Poverty to put a debt plan in place. Now their washing machine has broken and they have no savings, so they are washing all clothes by hand now. These funds would help to buy a good second hand washing machine, and would be a great encouragement to them at the start of their debt plan.
