£50 still needed for food and heating

C is a single mum of 2 children. She has a full time job but is struggling to pay anything but her essential bills. She came to us because of years of debt which she's "burrowed her head in the sand about " following an abusive childhood, depression and anxiety and then her youngest child being diagnosed with autism. She really is at the end of her tether and any help you can give to this hard working caring mum would mean the world to her and her family.

£110 still needed for School Uniform

M is bringing up he 2 sons aged 8 & 10 on her own. She works hard to provide for them but is struggling to buy all the uniform they need for the new term. Her older son has autism, and they are relieved that he has at last been given a place at a local special school. But because of his needs he has to have specific fabrics next to his skin. This makes what was already a significant expenditure, out of reach for this family. Any help you could give would be greatly appreciated. Thank you.

A tragic story. H was bullied at school. She changed schools but the bullying continued. H's mother's appeal to the school met with little success. H began to stop eating and drinking and eventually was admitted to hospital. The lack of fluid had damaged her internal organs so she was taken to a special unit 50 miles away. Her mother, a single parent of 2, cannot work with the stress and the travel costs to see her daughter are prohibitive. This grant will make a huge difference for this family.
