£150 needed for decorating

This 42 year old woman was homeless and a sex worker. During Covid-19 she has been sleeping virtually on the streets and working. We came across her on outreach giving out bags of hope, and after a lot of work from Mash and the church, she now has her first flat. She has nothing in it, we have collected some items for her and people have been very generous but please can we help her with decorating costs? This will help her mental health.

£120 needed for food and a smartphone

After being homeless for over a year, J has just moved into temporary accommodation and has managed to get onto the housing register. Changes to his benefits have left him without money for several weeks and he is really struggling financially. He needs help with food costs but would greatly appreciate help to buy a smartphone and some phone credit. This would give him access to the internet so that he can bid for properties, monitor his Universal Credit claim and liaise with other agencies which would all help to move his life forward.

£140 needed for an electric cooker and a kettle

P has just moved into a property after being homeless for 18 months following the breakup of a relationship. During that time he was often sleeping on the streets or in a car. He got involved with drugs but has sought help, and is now determined to turn his life around. He has started a claim for Universal Credit but it will be at least another 3 weeks before he receives anything. With no money, he has so far managed to get very little for his new home and would be very grateful for help getting an electric cooker and a kettle.

£90 needed for a Debt Relief Order

A came to us for a food parcel but she offloaded that debt meant she wasn't able to buy enough food to last. Because of past trauma, A had become dependent on alcohol and had last year been homeless, living in a tent. She was getting support from a local rehousing charity but having debt was still causing her much anxiety. There is no way this lady can manage the fee and she has no one to ask for help. Please can you change this lady's life so she can start again debt free?

£150 needed for a bed and other essential household items

J has been homeless for 18 months. He has no support and not even many friends to help him at this difficult time. J has thankfully recently been offered accommodation from the council and will hopefully be moving in once the tenancy agreement is signed. After being homeless for so long, J has nothing and so will be starting afresh completely. He will need absolutely everything but has prioritised needing a bed and any other essentials he can get. Can you help him with the cost of this?
