C, who has been known to our sex worker outreach team for fifteen years, was groomed into prostitution by her mother at eleven years of age. Raped by a punter who got her pregnant, C recently gave evidence against him following his imprisonment; she was very brave. C has been clean from drugs for six months, lives in a city hostel and is trying to stay off the streets. She would love a television to help take her mind off the trauma, but cannot afford this, due to being on Universal Credit.

This family of two parents and three children is from Nigeria and has no access to public funds. After gaining degrees in the UK, both parents were working but, sadly, mum has had a medical complication and now has lost her sight completely. A recent request donated £180, but unfortunately, the software needed to help our blind client to use the laptop requires storage of 1TB. We need to get further support to be able to provide the correct specifications for her to be able to work with the laptop.

J is an asylum seeker who has been with us in Lancaster for a few months. He is very keen to use the time while he is waiting to receive leave to remain, and he is accessing all courses that are available to improve his English. Without a tablet, it is very challenging for him to do the home work and access any further learning and resources. Thank you so much for helping him to get his own tablet.

C is a young man who has found himself in a very difficult situation and, up until recently, was left to sleep out on the streets. He is currently staying in our Winter Night Shelter and looking to find work and a place to live. His current phone has slowly been breaking down until yesterday when it completely died. C doesn't have enough spare money to buy a phone that will help him in all the way he needs. He needs to use it to find places to rent, look for jobs and email his CVs.
