T was attacked and robbed of all of his money yesterday. He won’t receive his next Universal Credit payment until the end of the month. He has no other financial support during this time. He is understandably very shaken and struggling to come to terms with this. Support in making it through until his next payment would be so appreciated. Please can you offer some help?

This mother has escaped domestic violence but now faces the challenge of rebuilding a home for herself and her two children. Life is not easy on a very tight budget and the accommodation she has been provided with is only partly furnished. She has been fortunate to receive help with some items but is badly in need of a washing machine to reduce the expense of launderettes and maintain hygiene for the family. Please could you help?
The client is a single mother living with her son in council accommodation. She works but her hours vary, and she is in receipt of Universal Credit. Her son suffers with a skin condition which is getting worse and has been very distressing for him, especially when it is hot. He needs a new mattress as his is old and uncomfortable and he struggles to sleep well. It would help to improve his wellbeing if he was able to get this.
This gentleman is an asylum seeker in hotel accommodation, he receives £8 a week. His internet will run out next week and he is not sure how he will continue to access his ESOL (English language) classes. He also says that the food at the hotel is really bad and that he cannot travel to the hospital (he has an operation next week). Supporting him with all of these things would improve his living conditions massively.
We met this client through Lewisham Foodbank. She told us she had run out of food and hadn’t had hot meals for some time, as she does not have any means of cooking food. An electric cooker would be so beneficial to her, as she would be able to heat the tinned items she receives through Foodbank and cook other meals for herself now and again. She is on a very low income and does not have any savings to buy a cooker. She is struggling to find work due to mental health issues and would really appreciate any support in buying a cooker.
N is a refugee from Iran, and has recently escaped domestic violence along with her young son. She has been moved around London many times over the last few months and, in one of those moves, her biometric residence permit was thrown away (by a hotel who N had thought was looking after it). We have arranged for her to receive a new one from the Home Office, which costs £75, and would love to help pay for it for her as she is only on Universal Credit.

She has been moved around London many times over the last few months, and in one of those moves, her biometric residence permit was thrown away (by a hotel who N had thought was looking after it). We have posted a separate request for the cost of the card itself. This request would cover the cost of the biometric data collection carried out by the Home Office, which is required for a replacement.
A very young family have moved from London to start a better life in the North of England away from serious crime. Mum was concerned her two young boys were growing up around gang culture and violence. They have managed to find a house, and we have sourced some beds for the children, but they are in desperate need for a cooker. This would really help them to prepare hot meals and also settle into their new environment.
C is a single parent with twin boys aged 14. After years of batting with substance misuse she is now really committed to addressing her addiction and successfully participating in a detox programme. While she is looking forward to a better future for her family, she is currently unemployed and worried that she can’t afford to replace her children’s old mattresses. The boys are embarking on their GCSE year and a restful sleep will make a huge difference to them. Can you please help this family?
Our client is a 45 year lady from Zimbabwe, working as a volunteer at Open Doors charity in Hull. She has asked for help to pay for her return coach fare to London as she needs to travel down to collect some essential items. She receives £10 a week from Open Doors every week along with basic food items, but she is not entitled to any public benefits, nor can she seek employment. She has no family to support her in UK. She would be very grateful for any help received.
