Y has recently moved into an unfurnished property. He claims UC and so is on a very low income. He needs to purchase furniture and white goods. A fridge-freezer is his priority. Any support would be greatly appreciated.
E has managed to find a private landlord who will offer him a tenancy for a flat, he became homeless when his previous relationship broke down. He is delighted to now have a home but it is unfurnished and he has nothing to move in with. He is going to try and save a bit out of his benefits each month to buy some of the things he needs but this will take months and he really could do with a bed and a small cooker for when he moves in. Please help if you can. Thank you.
G was taken into hospital with suspected Covid-19. She was in hospital for 3 weeks, and unfortunately whilst she was in hospital someone broke into her home and took many of her personal belongings as well as her sofa and cooker. The police are involved and someone has been arrested. Sadly G wasn't insured and cannot afford to replace the items that were stolen. Her friends and family have helped her but she doesn't have a cooker. Please help her if you can, she really deserves some help.
B has just been granted 50% custody of his daughter. She will be staying with him from Friday to Monday each week. One of the things he needs to provide is a bedroom for his daughter to stay in. He has saved up out of his benefits to buy her a bed and put some carpet down, but he cannot afford furniture for her. He would like to get her a small wardrobe and a bedside drawer unit, so that she can put some of her clothes at her dad's house. Please help this family if you can, thank you.
J lived with a friend for several years but suddenly found himself homeless when he was unexpectedly asked to leave. He lived in temporary accommodation for around 3 months but has recently been offered his own property. He has no furniture of his own and he would really appreciate help in getting a bed. He is currently having to make do with pillows and cushions on the floor, and a bed would be a great start in helping him feel more comfortable and settled in to his new home.
D has been referred to us for help. He has moved from supported living into his first flat which has no furniture at all. He has had a very chaotic life for a number of years, due to being abused as a child. He suffers with depression and severe anxiety. D has spent some time living on the streets. The new property will be his forever home, it would be good if we could make this as comfortable as possible for him.
S is vulnerable, he lives on his own but is supported by his mum who lives nearby. He likes his independence but recently he was befriended by someone that took advantage of him and stole money from him and then assaulted him. He eventually disclosed this to his Mum and the police are now involved. Last week his freezer broke and he now has no savings to be able to replace it. He relies on freezer meals that he microwaves, so he really needs a freezer. Please help him if you can. Thank you.
L has moved into a ground floor flat, she is delighted because it has a garden and she has a young baby (8 months old). Unfortunately the flat has no carpets and that means she cannot let her daughter crawl on the concrete floor. L has bought a couple of rugs to make the flat less dusty and cold from the floor, but ideally she would love to get a carpet for the living room. Sadly she is only in receipt of maternity benefit and cannot afford to buy the carpet she needs - please help if you can.
L is disabled and has a memory problem. He has been advised that for his own safety he needs to buy a replacement gas cooker that has a glass lid and an automatic burner cut off when the lid is closed, having had a small fire caused by leaving the cooker on. He cannot afford to buy this due to his limited income and debts. He wants to remain in his own home and with support live independently, however he will need additional safety equipment, including this cooker. Please help - thank you.
