M is a single mum of one child, she has been living with friend since she got her status. Now she has been placed in a temporary accommodation which is missing some furniture. She is receiving benefits and will not be able to afford the cost of the furniture. Many thanks for your help in advance.
H has spent a long time living in hostels. She has suffered from depression and anxiety. Recently she managed to make the leap from hostels to independent living by getting a flat for herself. The flat was unfurnished, and being on employment support allowance she has found it difficult to get white goods, especially since she ended up in hospital for an emergency operation. She has scrimped and saved for a number of items, but a washing machine would complete her flat and she can't afford that.
G has fled a violent relationship, along with her children. She has a new baby and has been living with supportive family members until now, but is looking to move out and continue with her life, building a bond with her son in the comfort of her own home. She is in need of basic necessities, particularly a cooker so that she can cook for her family. She is looking forward to the chance of starting again, free from domestic violence, and a cooker would really help with that.
N has fled domestic violence, and has been staying in a temporary hostel with her baby. She is now moving into her own accommodation but has no furniture or white goods. She is being supported in her new accommodation, but some white goods would really help her to make a new start and be able to look after her baby.
L has been homeless for a while and suffers from mental health issues. He is being supported into his own accommodation, and we have provided a starter pack of household essentials and bedding, but his flat is unfurnished and he has very few possessions. A washing machine and fridge/freezer would really help him to rebuild his life and get into a healthy daily routine, meaning he can look after himself and his property well.
K has 3 children and receives Universal Credit. She is pleased to have finally moved into a council property after several years on the waiting list. However, some of the kitchen appliances in her previous property were part of the rental so she wasn’t able to bring them with her. The cost of the move has been more than expected and left her unable to afford to replace them. Her most urgent need is for a gas cooker so that she can cook properly for her family and she would be very grateful for help with the cost.
A is a young man who has been living in a property without a cooker for more than 2 years. He has had poor mental health for many years and is unable to work. A is currently reliant on fried and microwaved food, which has a detrimental effect on his budgeting. He would love to be able to make simple, home cooked meals, and when I spoke to him he was so grateful that people might be willing to give so that he could improve his quality of life.
C is a middle aged woman who is currently unemployed and on Universal Credit. Her Universal Credit payments have deductions because of monies owed, and she is not in a position to pay for extras. She has medical conditions for which she is seeking help. For the last 3 weeks C's gas cooker has been broken. She has tried to get a loan but is not eligible because of the money she owes. She is working with her support worker to clear her debts. We are asking for donations to pay for the installation of a new gas cooker.

S moved into her own flat 3 months ago and gave birth to her daughter shortly after. She Is being supported by a local family welfare organisation to build up her confidence and parenting skills. She receives Universal Credit but is struggling financially and only just managing to cover her everyday living costs. She has managed to get together most of the things she needs for her flat, but doesn’t have a cooker. She is managing with a microwave but would really appreciate help to buy a cooker so that she can start to cook properly.
C is a young man with learning difficulties. He has lived with his mum who has cared for him and has supported him to the point of independence. He has recently moved into his first property but, due to family debts from a previous relationship, C's mum can't afford to buy a fridge freezer for his new property. C has almost everything else he needs just no way to safely store his food. Please help to provide a fridge freezer for someone in need.
S and her partner have 2 young children and are receiving parenting support from a local family welfare organisation. They receive Universal Credit but are really struggling financially. Their 2 year old daughter has outgrown her cot and is in need of a bed but there is no way they can afford it. They would be really grateful for help to purchase a bed, bedding and toddler bed-guard for her so that she can be comfortable and safe in bed.
This lady is being forced out of the family home by her abusive ex-husband. He is violent and is refusing to allow her to take anything with her and she is distraught. Her divorce solicitor has been unhelpful. She has found a flat to rent but as she works a zero hour low paid job and so she will struggle to meet the rent and daily living costs. We have managed to get beds for her and her two year old son and the landlord has provided a cooker and fridge. She needs a washing machine as a priority.
A single gentlemen who has had an incredibly hard life has a new opportunity in a new flat for a fresh start but he is moving in without any furniture, white goods or cooking facilities. Our Church is working with him closely and is helping to source the right items that he needs. Any gifts that you can give would make a huge difference. Thank you so much for your generosity.
T is a 19 year old vulnerable girl who has been rehoused with a social landlord. Due to events in her childhood she suffers with anxiety but manages well and is really keen to live independently. She has been supported in finding reconditioned electrical goods but is struggling to find a bed and mattress, currently sleeping on a blow up bed. She is wanting to find work but because of Covid-19 it's taking her a long time to secure work and it will take so long to save. Please can you help?
