Single mum who lives with her four children & supported by a family & victim engagement officer. She has recently started working part time but her benefits have been affected and so whilst using foodbanks for the interim period she has no access to funds for Gas, electrics, transport and daily necessities.
This gentlemen ended up on the streets after family disputes as a teenager. He has suffered mental health issues and drugs when on the streets, but he is trying to turn his life round and is in a hostel. The soles of his shoes are hanging off, he has a dirty coat which is in poor condition and he is in desperate need of some socks.
This young mum lives on universal credit, and on this limited income she is unable to replace her fridge freezer that has broken. She is really struggling to manage shopping daily and fresh food is expensive.
