J's family suffered a house fire 3 weeks ago, her family lost all of their possessions and they are living in temporary accommodation until work is done on their previous home . J currently claims housing benefit and child tax credit but did not have insurance to cover the loss of their possessions. The family need support in order to replace the clothes and furniture that they lost in this devastating fire.
Couple with toddler need money to make their house habitable. Just moved into a housing association property after years in substandard private rented. Husband on zero-hours minimum wage contracts. House had no floor covering or heating when they moved in and they had to pay 2 month's rent up front, leaving them skint. Money raised from other donors for floor covering, priority being the toddler's room. But finally their own bedroom needs carpeting, and this can be done for £120.
