D. has just moved to a new home and has no gas, electricity or furniture. Her support workers have sorted out gas and electricity for her but wonder if Acts 435 would be able to help her get a settee for her lounge. D. lives alone and has mental health issues such that she needs support.
G. has asthma and is unable to work. He lives with his wife and children in a one bedroom flat. He is struggling financially and has accrued fuel debts. His support workers are working alongside the family to bring stability, but would just like to clear this debt for them.
R is 60 years of age, receiving Universal Credit and lives on her own. She suffers from diabetes, high blood pressure and arthritis. The recent windy weather has blown part of her fence down and she does not have the money to replace it. She is feeling very vulnerable and it would be a great relief to her to get the fence mended.
We are currently supporting a lovely young mum who has been struggling financially to provide for her family. She has not had a washing machine for quite some time and has been relying on her sister to do their washing. We would love to be able to empower mum to be able to do the family's washing herself.
F is a single Mother of three children. Her oldest daughter, N, has a congenital heart condition and is recovering from open heart surgery and has suffered a post-op infection. F has applied for Personal Independence Payment but there is a 6-8 week wait for their decision. F recently took in her pregnant cousin and three young children, which is placing a strain on F being able to afford household expenses. F’s cousin is awaiting a benefit’s decision so it is up to F to support the entire family, which has been such a financial burden. F had some savings but they are now all gone. Support in paying for the household bills and petrol for the car would make such a difference to this struggling family.
