The request amount is for a fridge freezer, as the applicant has just moved into a new property and is in need of a lot of household items, but her priority is a fridge freezer. If any help can be given for this she would be very grateful.
L has very recently moved, and has no furniture or any electrical items. She has two children and currently has no means of doing any washing. She is living on very low benefits and her money all goes on her rent. Any help towards purchasing a washing machine for this family would be gratefully appreciated. Many thanks.
A has been living in council accommodation but is due to move to a housing association property with no carpets or white goods. She has had virtually no income for about 3 years and has only recently been entitled to benefits. Her new house has concrete floors and no carpets. She would appreciate any help towards the cost of carpets. Many thanks.
This woman, who has come to the UK from Sudan, has been granted Indefinite Leave to Remain and has moved into an unfurnished council tenancy. She is in receipt of Universal Credit which barely covers her food and utility costs. This means she has few possessions and limited means of purchasing items that she needs. She is in urgent need of a bed, so I am hoping that you can help. Many thanks.
J is currently living with her 18 year old daughter and their tumble dryer has broken. She is struggling to dry her and her daughter's clothes, and this will only get more difficult for her as winter approaches. Any help in getting a new dryer would be gratefully received and appreciated.
This young foodbank client is pregnant and fleeing domestic violence. She had no furniture but we have managed to find her a bed, a sofa and a camping stove, and thanks to the foodbank she has food to cook. However she is in desperate need of a basic oven to cook nutritious meals. Please help her during this difficult time. Thank you.
This 22 year old woman and her two children were homeless and living in a hostel. They have now obtained an independent council tenancy. They are of African origin and have indefinite leave to remain in this country. The mother is still not receiving her full benefit entitlement, so the family income is low. She cannot afford to buy beds for her children and a local charity has provided one and also a microwave and kitchen items. A second bed would help the family enormously.
J has just moved house and there are no carpets in his new flat. His universal credit will not stretch to buying carpets. He would appreciate any help given to enable him to purchase some carpet.
This 23 year old lady has been diagnosed with an emotionally unstable personality disorder and has been deemed unfit to work. She is expecting a baby but has separated from the father as he was violent towards her and has been charged with assault. She is now living independently for the first time and requires ongoing support from her care worker. She is in need of a washing machine but has no spare income so requires help towards the cost please.
This 23 year old sister is caring for her 3 younger siblings. They are struggling financially but need a fridge freezer as their current one is failing them and causing them extra costs to run it. A new fridge freezer would really help them! Please could you help this family and alleviate added pressure?
