LD is a young person who has had to leave her family home after an altercation with her step-father. She has been offered a flat and is keen to try and make a go of living independently but she is struggling to furnish the flat. She has saved some of her benefits and has bought some second hand items, but she is struggling to buy a cooker and having to buy food that doesn't need cooking is quite expensive. Please help if you can. Thank you
JW is 34 years old and he has been homeless most of his adult life. He has now been given a tenancy but he has no benefits in place yet and it will be 5 weeks before his Universal Credit claim is complete. He has moved in and has been given a bed and a chair, but he has no cooker. Can you help him to buy a small electric oven and hob, so he can warm food? At the moment he is having to buy takeaways to have a hot meal and it's costing him too much, having his own cooker would be ideal.
This older lady is due to move into a new rental property with her mother. This property should suit their needs so much better, as it is on one floor and they will benefit from being part of a community dwelling. However this imminent move means that various new items of furniture and fittings are needed in a short space of time. Their current property has a gas cooker and they need an electric one in their new home. We would be very grateful for donations towards this.
A's family were made homeless in April when they were evicted because they were struggling to make rent payments. They have been living in emergency accommodation, but are now moving into an unfurnished council flat. A's wife is currently not able to work as she is looking after the children, and A is out of work because of mental health problems. Their income is therefore very low and is only covering food and toiletries, meaning they cannot save for any furniture. A bed would be a real help.
My client, E has been struggling, but is getting on top of her debt, with the help of Christians Against Poverty. She is a young mum with with a baby and toddler. At a point when she has already been struggling with changes to her universal credit, her fridge has stopped working, after she had ordered a food delivery. She would be really grateful if you could help her replace her broken fridge as soon as possible. Thank you!
This lady has a long term health condition hence she is unable to work and she is on Universal Credit. She volunteers at a local Foodbank occasionally. Her fridge freezer is faulty and she desperately needs a replacement. She stores food that friends cook and bring for her, as she struggles to cook herself, but at present she can't have fresh food brought in for her due to not having a fridge. She is seeking assistance to purchase a fridge freezer to store her food and medicines.
D has a diagnosis of paranoid schizophrenia. Following a lengthy admission to hospital under the mental health act, D has now been offered a local authority tenancy of his own for the first time ever. He has been supported to give him skills to live independently, however he is on benefits which only allow him to save very slowly to furnish his flat. He would really appreciate a bed to sleep on whilst he continues to save for other items.
LM's son has been newly diagnosed with autism and ADHD, he gets really boisterous and accidentally broke his bed by bouncing on it. He also wets the bed, so he really needs a new mattress too. LM is waiting for her new benefits to be paid, but at present she cannot afford to buy a new bed for her son, please could you help?
Miss O has been sofa surfing and staying with friends, but has just moved in to a unfurnished flat. She does work but is on a zero hours contact and there has been a quiet period recently, so she is struggling to buy everything she needs for her flat.

M is not working and is in need of the use of foodbanks for food. Another issue is M's fridge has broken and he now has lost the storage of fresh foods and supplies such has milk etc. M is asking for £120 to help buy a new fridge/fridge-freezer. Any help towards that will be very much appreciated as any money he has is for bills and essentials.
This family and 2 young children arrived in Hull 18 months ago from a refugee camp in Jordan after fleeing their home in Syria. The family home has been bombed and M’s father and 4 other relatives were all killed. M’s mother and sister are being housed near to them in Hull. They have no means at the moment of obtaining essential items of furniture required to build a new home. We are hoping to purchase a washer, beds and furniture.
