This young couple fled from very poor and dangerous conditions abroad. They had lodgings, but he was made redundant from his hospital job and because she became pregnant they had to leave. They have now been rehoused but have nothing in the flat at all. The baby is due any day. Another charity has helped with baby items for them and bedding. They need a washing machine and there is a reconditioned one which can be delivered. They are so grateful for any help.
T is on universal credit and is struggling financially. She suffers with poor mental health and is waiting on a heart operation; her referral to Acts 435 came through her doctor. T's fridge/freezer has broken and she is in debt with her gas and electric so she can't afford to put money aside to buy a new one. Helping T buy a fridge/freezer would be one stop towards a better life and help her manage her meals.
This young couple live in a one bedroom flat. They are living on the breadline and claiming Universal Credit. They both have diagnoses of Asperger's Syndrome and the adult male also suffers from ADHD. They really struggle to make ends meet and both are trying to obtain work but seem unable to do so due to their mental health issues. Currently their bed is in a very bad condition and it is causing back pain. They would be very grateful for your help to replace it.

LA needs help towards getting a fridge freezer as his one has recently broken. He has no money to buy one- he is on Universal Credit but is struggling to get by every month normally without this expense. He relies on the local food bank regularly to get food and toiletries. LA would really appreciate any help in being able to buy a new fridge freezer.
A local family, who have a child under 2, have been through a tough year and a negative spiral. They lost a family member to suicide which led to the main income earner falling into depression. The employer didn't understand, causing unemployment. Ever since, they have struggled financially and emotionally. They have a gas cooker but can't afford to get it fitted safely. All cooking is done via a camp stove, which is obviously not ideal. They manage but can't cook properly for their child. Please help?
