This lady has struggled on a tiny income for years and when she came to CAP we met in her living room which simply has a concrete floor. She has been buying packs of laminate flooring from B&M when she can afford it and it is creeping across the floor very slowly. Due to her asthma she cannot have carpeting. After years of depriving herself of something as basic as a floor it would be wonderful to bless her with a properly laid floor which will last her and bring her such joy.
Kim is single and living with her 19 year old daughter (full time student) and she is trying to obtain joint custody of her other two children aged 5 and 10. Kim claims Employment and Support Allowance as she suffers from Depression and alcohol problems and she was receiving treatment from a local charity which specialises in addiction problems but has missed appointments as she cannot afford the bus fare to attend. Having a bus pass would enable Kim to attend treatment.
