L has moved into her new home with her two children aged 3 and 5. Their furniture was in storage but their carpets couldn’t be saved after a fire at the property caused extensive water damage. L has no savings and is working with Christians Against Poverty in relation to some debts due to leaving the previous property, therefore she cannot afford carpets for their home. She has been quoted £500 by a local company, she has applied to 2 charities but needs this amount to cover the shortfall. Thank you for your help.
This request is for a mother of twin boys aged 14 months. The mum fled an abusive relationship when the boys were just 4 months old. She has rehoused and settled well but currently the floorboards are bare in the boys' room. The boys are now crawling and pulling to stand up and the floors need carpeting urgently to maintain their safety.
