J has just been moved into his own flat, which badly needs decorating and carpeting. He would love to be able to carpet his lounge & get curtains if possible. He is unemployed and has no finances at all.
This young single mum has been told by her social worker that if she doesn't make changes around the home to ensure her children's safety they may be taken into care. She is mum to three little boys under 5 years. Her middle child has a heart defect and she spends a lot of time at hospital appointments and admissions. She is very upset and wants to do all she can but struggles to make her money stretch. This extra expense is beyond her reach so your help would mean everything to her.
Our Foodbank Client is in need of some basic furniture for his newly acquired, unfurnished Flat. Previous to this he has been homeless and sofa surfing. We are able to source a bed, table and chairs and a sofa for his needs, plus some other items given by our volunteers. Your help will be greatly appreciated.
M comes to us for counselling and help with her debts. She has had a troubled past with an abusive relationship and then friends stealing from her. She had been saving to move away to a new home and has nothing to furnish this property. Getting help with a cooker will mean she could move sooner than later and get away from the toxic relationships she's trying so desperately to get away from. Thank you for your kindness.
D has epilepsy and diabetes which he struggles to control. His life fell apart when his Mum died unexpectedly 5 years ago, and this has made it more difficult for him to manage his health. He has moved to a ground floor flat as he falls frequently, but he needs some new bedding due to his health problems and also curtains to give him some privacy. A kind donation of £100 would be enough to buy bedding and some charity shop curtains. D would be very grateful for the help.
M is an older man who moved into a bungalow a few years ago because of his wife’s mobility issues. The last few years have been particularly difficult, as his wife and 6 other close family members have passed away. M is asking for money to buy a reconditioned washing machine. M tries to keep himself busy and positive, getting involved in various art activities and doing gardening.

"I have four young children and my husband and I are both currently unemployed and awaiting our first payment from Universal Credit and are unable to access any money to buy a washer as mine has broken. I am washing my clothes by hand which is causing my hands and skin to become very sore and red and desperately need help to buy a replacement washing machine. I worry about how we will manage as a family on benefits and do not have any spare money to buy a washer and would welcome any help available."

R recently became homeless and is experiencing mental health difficulties. She has been staying at a hostel and is now moving into accommodation with her 2 children. We have supported her with some household items, but some extra bedding and some curtains would transform their home and help them settle into their new home after this particularly difficult time.
R and his partner have just moved to a new unfurnished house. R has health problems and is unable to work and his partner has no income either. They are currently waiting to hear whether a benefits claim will be successful. We have supported R with an emergency food parcel and household items, but they have no washing machine and no money to purchase one. If they can find a machine cheap enough, they would also like to buy some towels and bedding.

"I am a single mum with 2 young children and due to relying benefits I struggle to make ends meet and I constantly worry about being in debt. I desperately need to buy a replacement fridge so that I can keep my food fresh. The worry of not be able to afford a Fridge is keeping me up at night and this is contributing to my health problems. If I can get some help to buy a Fridge then this will help to relieve some of my worries."
