Cascade Family Essentials

Last updated 18/05/24

"People find themselves in financial difficulty for all kinds of reasons. Whilst cost of living expenses continue to rise and wages for many remain static, more and more people are finding themselves struggling to feed and clothe their families. We are all aware of the growing need and use of Food Banks across the country. Equally we believe that there is a growing need to provide clothing for children of families on low incomes, or those suffering financial hardship. Cascade Baby Bundles aims to support the parent(s) by providing a ‘Baby Bundle’ gift containing items of clothing, toys and essentials that will help cushion the financial impact of a child on a family experiencing hardship. We provide these bundles for newborn babies and children all the way up to age ten."

Linking Help with Hope

Linking Help with Hope

Last updated 18/05/24

"LHH (Linking Help with Hope) is a small national charity that is over 100 years old We help those who are living on a very low income, receiving the appropriate welfare benefits and who have exhausted all other funding sources including statutory funding, occupational, local and specialist charities. LHH operates and distributes funds across the United Kingdom (England, Wales, Scotland and Northern Ireland). Financial assistance may be provided under the following three categories: One-off grants LHH issues grants of up to £250. These are generally awarded for or towards essential household items and specialist equipment not available from statutory agencies. We recognise that white goods (cooker, washing machine, fridge), household furniture, flooring and other items can be very hard to purchase or replace when you live on or below the poverty line. Extended Assistance We also provide ongoing financial assistance. LHH currently supports around 70 ill and less able people with regular financial help. Extended Assistance beneficiaries will also receive quarterly newsletters, birthday and Christmas cards as well as a personal visit from the Secretary once a year where possible. We may (at our discretion depending on funding availability) contribute towards special occasions such as birthdays or seasonal events and breaks away from home. We believe this personal touch is important and integral to our charity. Carers’ breaks Depending on available funds, one-off payments are made for carer’s breaks. We understand the role of a carer is both onerous and tiring. Carers contribute hugely to the general well-being of the people for whom they are caring but rarely practice self-care, often due to lack of funds. We would like to rectify this and allow the carer an opportunity to take a break."

The first thing you will need to do is to get in touch with your local council as soon as possible. Your council must help if you’re legally homeless, but how much depends on your eligibility, your level of need and how you became homeless. Manchester City Council ask that you call or email them before visiting them in person to stop you from having a long wait to be seen."

Migrant Destitution Fund

Migrant Destitution Fund

Last updated 08/07/24

We give direct cash payments to migrants who have been left without any access to support because of where they've come from. Direct payments allow people the dignity to choose and live more equally. The Fund aims to restore dignity and empower people forced into these degrading situations by Home Office policy. Migrants experiencing NRPF are some of the most marginalised people in our society. While COVID-19 has exacerbated the challenges they face, these challenges are not going away with the easing of lockdown. The Fund provides grants of £80 once a month to those made destitute by NRPF. Those with children can receive an extra £50 per child.These grants are typically spent on food, winter clothing, phone credit, travel costs (e.g. to appointments), dental treatment. We recognise that £80 does not solve all of the problems that destitute migrants experience. Ultimately, we can’t achieve justice while the NRPF policy continues. But the fund does provide a lifeline when people need it most. You cannot apply directly to the fund, you need to be referred by one of our referral partners. If you are already connected with one of those organisations, ask someone there to refer you to the fund. If you are not already connected with one of these organisations, write to us at info@migrantdestitution.co.uk, and we will signpost you to the most suitable organisation that can help you apply to the fund. The fund is pausing over the summer. We will be closed from 28th June 2024, and will reopen no later than October 2024. Please email info@migrantdestitution.co.uk for further information.

Since then the project has grown and grown with the fundamentals of recycling and encouraging more people to take up cycling remaining strong. We take old bikes, clean them up and then our volunteers and groups of young people fix them, gaining AQA qualifications in the process. The newly-refurbished bikes are then donated to local families, used in conjunction with the Transport for Greater Manchester or sold with all profits being churned directly back into the Positive Cycles project to buy better equipment and parts. The workshop is also used by the Oldham Youth Justice Service as part of the unpaid community work of young offenders. The young people are involved in cleaning and fixing donated bikes and making sure they are roadworthy and ready to be resold. In doing this they gain valuable experience and qualifications. We also offer AQA-accredited Bike Maintenance courses to individuals and groups."

"If you are homeless today, go to Salford Housing Options Point and ask for housing options advice. You can also go to Salford Loaves and Fishes on Paddington Close in Pendleton Monday to Friday 9am to 2pm. Do I need to bring anything? You will need to take the following with you: Proof of your ID such as a valid passport, a driving licence, a medical card, a letter from your GP Proof of your income or benefits Proof of your National Insurance number What will I be asked at my housing options assessment? You will be asked questions about your current housing situation. This is important as it will allow the team to provide you with tailored advice relevant to your circumstances. If you have nowhere to live, this will trigger a homelessness assessment, under the homelessness legislation. What is temporary accommodation? Customers who are assessed under the homelessness legislation as having a priority need, and have no accommodation available to them that evening, may be offered emergency accommodation. This could be a hostel or bed-and-breakfast accommodation. When will I receive a decision? Once we have completed your assessment, we will write to you with our decision. If we have accepted a duty to re-house you, we will allow access to Salford Home Search for help finding a new home."
