This family, with three school aged children and two preschool aged toddlers, have had their Employment Support Allowance stopped suddenly and they are waiting for a tribunal. The family need help to buy new school uniforms as they are growing fast and they can't afford to replace them at the moment.
This mother of 4 needs school shoes and some items of uniform for her 9 year old (who wears 13 yr old sizes), and an older sibling starting secondary school needs AstroTurf trainers. She is a single mum whose partner pays some maintenance to her but refuses to help with clothing costs. Mum is really worried that the children will start school unprepared and it makes her very anxious to think of them standing out and potentially being bullied. Thank you for any help to keep this mother calm.
M has had a tough time due to domestic violence but is now trying to get her 2 youngest children into school and nursery. She is struggling as some of her benefits have been stopped as she was away visiting family and trying to find a place of safety. We would like to help purchase school uniform, school shoes, bags, etc for the children so they are ready for school and nursery.
