After 2 years of living in temporary, supported accommodation, B has been offered a council property. However, it is completely unfurnished. He has been able to obtain most of the items he needs but still needs to purchase a bed. He is claiming Universal Credit and so is on a very low income so can't afford to buy these items himself. Could you help him?
R is a middle-aged man living in a home which is not fit for purpose. His cooker has one ring and the oven does not work. R has major health issues including emphysema and type 2 diabetes. He has literacy issues. He also suffers from anxiety and depression, made worse by the inadequate nature of his home. R's application for money towards an electric cooker is backed by his support worker. If you were able to help, your generosity would have a very positive effect on this man's quality of life.

This young mum is struggling to bring up her children alone since her partner, who had bi-polar disease, left them with debt. She manages her income quite well but has nothing left over after general living costs. They have no bedroom carpets and the house is quite cold. Her little boy has ADHD and needs to spend some time out in his own room whilst being home every day during lockdown. Bedroom carpets would help to keep the rooms warmer and avoid extra heating costs.
This young family arrived in the UK last year after being forced to leave Iran as they had become Christians. Their baby was born in December. They have been granted asylum and been moved into a council flat. The council have provided a bed, a travel cot, a cooker and a washer but they need basic furniture including a proper cot. They both had good jobs in Iran and are actively seeking work but this is difficult in lockdown.
C suffers with mental health problems and is unfit for work. Her benefits are in the process of being transferred to Universal Credit so she faces a delay in payment and she is on a very tight budget. She doesn’t have a fridge/freezer and has no way of being able to afford one herself. She would really appreciate help with the cost so that she has somewhere to store fresh and frozen food. This would mean fewer shopping trips and may help to save money on her budget.
J is unemployed and receives Universal Credit but is constantly struggling with bills and debt. He lives in a bedsit and manages with a small table-top cooker to save on space. Unfortunately the cooker he has is broken and he can’t afford to replace it. He has no other means of preparing hot food and he would be very grateful for help to get a new one.
A is a refugee from Iraq and has been in the UK for 18 months. She lives with her two children, her youngest has cerebral palsy. A housing association has offered her a property that is more appropriate to suit the needs of her youngest son, however to accommodate his wheelchair, she will need vinyl flooring throughout. This is something she needs to fund herself, which she is not able to do. Any donations towards to the cost of this will be invaluable.
R has recently been evicted from his accommodation. Following a period of homelessness, he has been able to secure alternative accommodation. However it is completely unfurnished. He has been able to source most of the items he needs but is still missing some key items such as a wardrobe and dining table. Any support would be greatly appreciated.
