J is a single parent of 2 children. Her fencing fell down in the recent winds and is in desperate need to be fixed. She has a large garden and we would like to be able to fix the fencing and make the whole garden more low maintenance for her to maintain in the long term. She has no other means of getting the money to do this work but with local contacts we can spend the money on the fencing equipment we need to buy and put in the manpower to make it a safe and secure place for this family.
We are supporting a Mum and her young son who have recently been rehoused after a serious incident with her ex-partner. They have had to leave lots of their belongings behind but Mum is really down as there is no carpet in the house. She is particularly anxious to sort her son’s room as priority and make it homely for him.
This client has been living at the hostel for the last two weeks following a relationship breakdown, but the family are now moving into their own council tenancy. The client has applied for Jobseekers Allowance and a Community Support Grant but both of these applications will take several weeks to process. In the meantime, all four of her children are in urgent need of beds which she cannot afford to purchase. I am hoping that you can help by covering the cost of a bed for one of the children.
K is a single parent with two boys. She has been in debt for many years. She has returned to work part time and has debts she just cannot afford to repay. A Dro will mean she can clear these debts and concentrate on sticking to her budget and going forward. She has no way of saving for the £90 as she lives on a very tight budget. Please consider helping this family to be relieved from the burden of debt.
