There is the frank buttle trust - need a professional to apply for it. I know they won't pay deposits etc but do help with other bits

You could try the family fund

Would you be eligible for a Budgeting Loan?

A budgeting loan will lend up to £1500 although I have had one recently and despite never having had one before they would only lend me £800. It has allowed me to do some work to DS's room and I am fairly sure it can be used to help,with costs of moving etc.

had a recent buttle grant to pay for ds2's school residential, already applying to famiy fund and cant get a budgeting loan as am about to sign off income support due to partner moving in.
