£120 needed for a gas cooker

C was homeless and after a period of living in a hostel, he now has a flat. C saved his benefit money and managed to buy most of the things he needed for his flat. He is very proud of that, as he has a learning disability, which makes budgeting quite tricky for him. Sadly the second hand cooker he bought didn't work properly and he can't get his money back. This set him back and he now has no savings to buy a replacement. Please can you help C to get a new cooker, so he can finally have hot meals?

£140 needed for kitchen appliances

M is an amputee who has recently been rehoused after becoming homeless. His new accommodation still lacks the adaptations he needs. He is in debt through mismanagement of direct rent and social care payments. He has support through his local authority social services and housing debts but is unable to find the money to buy essential appliances, namely a cooker, washer, and a tumble dryer. His disability makes him unable to hang washing. Could you help him with these appliances?

£110 needed for a washing machine

P was homeless for 12 months, he lived with friends but also spent time sleeping rough and has physical problems that affect his mobility. He now has a flat but he is 2 miles away from a launderette. He cannot carry his washing there and back or afford the bus fare either. Ideally having a new washer would mean he could wash his clothes and bedding in his own home as and when needed. He is on benefits but has deductions so cannot afford to buy a washer. Please help if you can. Thank you.

£70 needed for a smartphone

Our client became homeless after he was evicted by his landlord. He is now in temporary accommodation and has very few belongings. His laptop was stolen from him which he was using to develop his interest in writing. He also has every expectation that he will return to work but needs internet access to help with job searching and vocational development. He is asking for a smartphone so that he can access his emails again and continue researching work and continue his writing project.

£150 needed for a cooker

This client suffers from depression and is in receipt of benefits. After a period of homelessness she has been allocated an unfurnished housing association tenancy which she has just moved into, with few possessions. She is struggling to purchase essential household items, especially larger items such as appliances. She would benefit greatly from a cooker, so I am hoping that you can consider awarding a grant towards the cost. Many thanks.
