Give to someone in need
Acts 435 is about giving to people directly, to help them bridge the gap when they are facing a financial crisis.
Can you help a specific person in need?
Read stories of the applicants below and give as you feel able. Any amount will make a big difference to someone who is struggling.
You can instead make a general donation and the Acts 435 team will allocate it to the most urgent requests.

L, who volunteers for a local Charity, has been involved in a car accident which has damaged her spine and left her unable to walk well. Due to her health deteriorating, she is having to move. L does not have any savings and does not own her property. We would be so grateful if the funds could be donated so that she is able to pay for moving her belongings. Hopefully, the move will mean that L is able to get the help she needs. She would like to thank you, in advance, for donating.

L lives alone in a social housing flat and is a recovering alcoholic with his only income being Employment and Support Allowance. He does not have a working vacuum cleaner; therefore, his property does not meet the required cleanliness standards and he is due an inspection from the Housing Association. Due to his limited income, debts, and and an increase in bills, he is unable to afford to buy a vacuum cleaner. L has become increasingly anxious about this situation and fears he will be evicted. Please can you help?

J has moved into a new property and was unable to change the utility bills into his name, as there were outstanding payments from the previous tenant. So that no overdue charges are added to the bill, J's Landlord has outright paid the bill and now J needs to reimburse him. J has been able to pay a significant portion of the bill, but needs help to clear the remaining balance. Thank you for your time.

T has a brain injury and has just been housed. He is being supported by his local Foodbank and is struggling to get by. He really needs some help to buy some seating, or a sofa, and any help that you could give T would be very much appreciated. Thank you!
