This lone parent family has 5 children. They are on a low income, in receipt of Child Tax Credit, Income Support and Disability Living Allowance (Care Element). The children are receiving support for their emotional well being. They have had problems with a mice infestation which has damaged the family's clothes and soft furnishings. They have now overcome this but the children are suffering from anxiety about their clothes being clean and free from traces of mice faeces. Could you help them to buy a wardrobe to relieve some of this anxiety?
C suffers from multiple health problems and she is finding it hard to get the support she needs. She is grandma to 3 children aged 3, 10 and 12 and they are now living with her, as her daughter has been sent to prison. She was already struggling to meet her everyday bills and now she doesn't know how she will cope. She would be really grateful for help towards food and energy bills so that at least she can keep the children fed and warm.

M has been given shared custody of his 6 year old boy. He would love for him to be able to stay with him as his Mum is in the high risk category for Covid-19 and it would be better if he could stay with his Dad. However he has no carpet in the room that would be his son's room. He has been told that he can get a carpet fitted but he hasn't got enough money to have this done. Can you help him please?
