D is a gentleman who is receiving Employment Support Allowance and is unable to work due to epilepsy. He is managing to support himself but has no spare money to replace his broken Vacuum Cleaner, which was purchased second hand some years ago. He would be very grateful for any help you can give to enable him to purchase a vacuum. Thank you.
J is a Christian who escaped persecution and came to the UK 5 years ago with her family. They struggled with life in the UK, with the parents suffering mental health problems and the husband finally leaving the family with large debts. J is now working hard to get debt free with Christians Against Poverty and to rebuild their lives. She recently moved from an apartment to a more appropriate family house and she now needs more furniture for the bedrooms.
L has been depressed and homeless since his wife left him. He has been offered a flat with access to support so he can get help with his anxiety and depression and work towards having his son stay with him. In order for his son to stay with him he will need a collapsible bed as the flats are not big enough for two beds to be out permanently. We have sourced a bed but need help to buy it. His son is looking forward to the time when he can sleep over at the flat. This would help that happen.
Two years ago, K's 8 year old daughter had a stroke which has resulted in her suffering from severe epilepsy. At a check-up, they discovered that she has a brain tumour for which there is no cure. This has been devastating for the family and they are trying to make it as normal as possible for the children. A two seater and three seater settee would make a massive difference for them as it would allow them to spend much needed family time together while they still can.
D has been struggling mentally and physically from an abusive relationship. He has been living with a parent, who also has been financially and mentally struggling with their situation, trying to help her son with a fresh start. Recently D has been offered accommodation but has nothing to take with him. It would make a huge difference to have some help with a cooker so he can cook and take the financial pressure of his mum as she has very little income. Thank you so much for your help!
K has just moved into a flat after a period in prison. Prior to that, he had gone through a painful divorce and lost his home and everything he had. This led to mental health problems, but with the aid of support workers he is trying to get back on his feet. He receives Universal Credit, but is struggling to afford the things he needs to furnish his flat. He would like a cooker so he can prepare proper meals instead of living on cold food and he would be really grateful for help with this.
NV has just moved into a flat where she has no furniture or cooking facilities. She has tried to get help from friends or family and they have supplied a bed and duvet but they cannot do any more for her. Please would you consider helping NV to buy a microwave so that she can have hot food in her new home? Thank you.
ZH is 62 and has applied for asylum, but she has no documentation to prove her situation and sadly it hasn't been granted. She is trying to get the evidence she needs to put in a fresh claim but in the meantime the church has let her stay in a flat that they have. Every one has rallied round to furnish the flat but we really need your help to get her a fridge, so that she can keep food fresh. She loves to cook traditional meals and having fresh veg would be amazing. Thank you for your help.
ES has been homeless for 2 months. She had a fall out with her Stepdad and was asked to leave. She doesn't feel she can go back and has now been offered a small bedsit. She is looking forward to moving in and making it her new home but she has to wait 5 weeks for her first benefit payment and she only has a mattress to move in with. Please could you help her to buy a counter top hob and oven so she can have hot food? Thank you.
JM is very vulnerable & now lives in supported accommodation. His ex-partner asked him to leave their home, which he did, leaving everything in it for his ex-partner and their son. JM does not manage his own finances his benefits are paid into his mother’s bank account, she pays his bills and gives him money as he needs it. She has been helping him to save up for essentials but he still needs a hob, which he cannot afford. Once he gets a hob his son will be able to stay with him
LR has been diagnosed with fused vertebrae, which cause him pain. He has been advised to buy a new bed, whilst he waits for an operation to correct this disability, but cannot afford one. He has asked for a loan at the job centre but because he is already paying back an advance they have said he doesn't qualify for a loan. Sadly he is waking many times during the night as he is in pain. Please can you help him to buy a new mattress and bed base? Thank you.
