A removed herself and her 2 & 3 year old children from an emotionally abusive relationship. She has had to start from scratch. A is self employed and works from home, however has no support from family so has to put the children into nursery so that she can work properly. A's Tax Credits award has been pending since Easter so A is not eligible yet for child care assistance. A is also having to deal with 3 weeks rent arrears. All A wants to do is make a fresh start. Can you help?
Susan is a lone parent with a two year old girl. She has been laid off from her job in favour of others who can work longer hours. She has no money until next week, when she has her last payment for £50. Her benefits have changed and she is waiting for them to be sorted. Electricity and gas have run out in her house so has moved in with a friend for the moment. Hopefully, when her child can be minded,she will be able to work longer hours but now she really needs your help.Please help.
We have helped this man before as he'd made a mistake on his benefits form. He has now got it sorted and just needs a little more help to get by until the first payment comes through. He needs some shopping and some money to top up his electricity card and would be very grateful if he could get this help.
T lost his ESA when he became homeless. He is now turning his life around with the help of Adaction. They are helping him try to get his benefits back but in the meantime he desperately needs household essentials like bedding and newer clothes and shoes. Please can you help him make a fresh start.
