E is a single lady in her 60's, who recently lost her job as the lady she was caring for sadly passed away. Due to complications with her Universal Credit application she has had little income over the past few months. She has moved into a cheaper, smaller flat and secured a low paid part-time job 16 hrs a week. She is registered with Christians Against Poverty to help with rent arrears which built up from her previous accommodation. We are seeking to support her with funds towards a cooker for her new flat. Thank you.
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.
