D and S have health issues and are currently applying for Personal Independence Payment having asked for help from Christians Against Poverty. Their washing machine has been broken for 3 months. A neighbour has been helping them out but she doesn’t want her washer being over used. Applications were made for help, but as they don’t have children they weren’t successful. Would you be able to help this couple to purchase the washing machine they need?
C is a middle aged man who’s struggling to find employment, he has engaged on our job club programme every week. After struggling for years on and off with alcohol and weed addiction he has been clean of alcohol for 2 years and weed for 6 months. C lives in Scotland in a private rented flat and has over the past year made numerous phone calls to his landlord and he hasn’t came to fix either his cooker or his heating. Because of this we are trying to raise money to get him a hot plate and a fan heater for his flat.
