J lives with her three children aged 13, 6 and 4. She receives benefits and has no money to spare. Last year she moved out of her house for the council to make repairs. She has now moved back in and redecorated the areas where repairs have been done, but unfortunately her washing machine has started to leak and the temperature gauge on her cooker has broken. She has no spare money to repair or replace these items and any help you could afford would be greatly appreciated.
This family of 5 is under extreme financial stress due to Dad's health issues after suffering redundancy. They are struggling on benefits, and their cooker has just broken, meaning that they are reduced to preparing meals on a camping hot plate. A new cooker would ensure that the family can prepare proper meals again and provide them with some hope for the future.
We have a lovely mum in the Netherton area who thought that she was being kind when she took in a rescue cat. Unfortunately, the cat had fleas which infested the property. Mum has had the cat rehomed and realises that it wasn't a great idea. Her 3 year old cannot go to nursery until the fleas are cleared and this will have a huge impact on him. Mum is not going to be able to manage fumigating the flat herself and so Dudley Council will organise this and we're looking to cover the cost.
