Mr S was admitted to hospital in April which resulted in a leg amputation. After his operation he was in a care home for 4 months and now has been given a new tenancy. Changing over his benefits has meant he has experienced hardship and he has also had to buy white goods etc. He has very little money left and requires winter clothing. He would normally go to a charity shop but these are all closed and the weather is very cold - most of his clothing was lost in hospital and the care home. Please help.
Mr J struggles with severe and enduring mental health issues. The impact is such that he is unable to cope with every day interactions with other people and has limited funds. Family have assisted in white goods apart from a washing machine. He suffers with severe paranoia and feels that his clothes are covered in dust and dirt. Access to a washing machine would improve his mental health and general wellbeing. He rarely leaves the house and believes if his clothes are clean it would be life changing.
S is a mum with three children (two of school age and one at nursery). S and her husband were both self employed and the current pandemic has had a devastating effect on their income. Her husband has very little work and S is suffering from the effects of Long Covid, which means that she is currently unable to work at all. The children have outgrown their shoes and also need some warm winter clothes (especially as they are not in school uniform at the moment). Any help would be appreciated.
S is a single mum to three young children, aged 1, 3 and 9 years old. She has found the last year very difficult financially. Apart from their debt issues it has come to light that they are in need of white goods; a fridge/freezer, a cooker and a washing machine. The latter has completely stopped working and this request is for funds to buy a replacement washing machine.
N is a single mum with one daughter. She suffers from mental health issues and is unable to work. Her daughter is a young carer. Recently their cooker has broken and they are in need of a replacement so that they can cook home-cooked meals again. N receives Universal Credit, but that is only enough to pay for the bills and shopping. It will not cover the cost of a new (or second hand) appliance.
This young boy has witnessed first hand domestic abuse on his mother. As a result he has developed anger issues which he is working through with his counsellor, but his road is very long and dark, his outbursts have cloaked the other side of this child which is very sensitive, so worries and is very anxious about his mother. Can we continue to help him find his way?
After suffering years of abuse this lady is seeking to regain her self-worth, self-esteem, self-belief and confidence. these were stripped from her in the years of the abuse. She soldier's on for the sake of her children but needs more time to adjust to this freedom, she has found since counselling began. Can we still support this lady to keep moving forward?
This child is working well with her counsellor as she try's to adjust to her parents splitting and moving abroad. The lockdowns are not helping her as her anxiety levels are severe, so much so she has collapsed at school and worries over the slightest thing. Can we help this child to understand her parents split and why?
This woman seeks professional help over her lack of self-worth, anxiety and depression. 2 years ago she separated from her abusive partner, but he still has a negative hold on her so she cannot re-start her life without help. The abuse took the forms of both physical and emotional so now she needs to regain her self-worth. Can we help her find that again? Thank you.
This young lady approached the counsellors for urgent help as she can no longer cope with her emotions. Her childhood was traumatic and included abuse at all levels, at that time she was not offered and help to address the feelings she was experiencing. Her relationships with men especially have stirred up her past feelings. Can we give this young lady her young life back?
