M, an an older gentlemen living in supported accommodation, suffers with anxiety, depression and post traumatic stress disorder (PTSD). He is in recovery and being supported for this. Due to his mental health issues, M has sadly accumulated substantial debt and has sought help from his local Citizens Advice Bureau.

Please would you consider supporting this gentlemen to be able to start over and concentrate on getting better, rather than worrying about debt?

G is a single lady who, due to ill health, has had to move to sheltered accommodation to have support available twenty four hours a day. She is not able to work and has no savings, due to being dependent on benefits. G has no family support, but is having help from AGE UK to move home during this stressful time. She has no cooker in her new home and, as there is no gas supply, she is unable to take her old gas cooker with her. G would be very grateful for funding for a new electric cooker.
