This lady had her 2 youngest children taken into care last year. The children have very recently returned to live with her on a permanent basis. In addition, this lady has moved this month from employment onto Maternity Allowance (as she does not qualify for Statutory Maternity Pay she receives Maternity Allowance). This has greatly impacted on her income and has suddenly found her much worse off. To help improve conditions for the family, money towards a washing machine would be appreciated.
This young man was working for an agency but lost his job. He got behind in rent and was paying it off so much a week, but with no work and being on limited benefits he has got into arrears. He cannot afford any Gas this month and has just managed to put electric on. He would be so grateful for your help to pay the gas bill.
This client came to us after being referred by his doctor. His doctor was concerned as the client had been losing a lot of weight over the last few visits. The doctor asked a few questions and found out that the client had been sanctioned and was struggling to feed himself over the past month, losing over a stone in weight due to lack of food. This funding would help the client purchase food provisions while his benefits are looked into.
