Miss C is 4 years old and is now sleeping in a child's bed. She has an old bed were the bed base and the springs are broken. This is unsafe for the child. The local council has been approached who do not help with broken beds. The child will need a good night's sleep to aid her development in life. She is sharing a bed with her mother and this is also broken.
Miss C is single parent and has a son aged two. Unfortunately she lives in a property with no radiators only small heaters which would cost a lot to keep on to dry clothes. Her tumble dryer has broken and now she has no easy way to dry clothes. Miss C is in receipt of benefits and wouldn't have the income to purchase a new dryer for a long time. With a small child in the house the amount of washing is high, can you please help?
Mum has serious epilepsy. Her daughter is a young carer. The family have been referred to our family project for extra support. The house they live in has lots of work needed that we are helping to sort with the housing association however, the daughters bedroom is functional. Mum needs help to decorate high ceilings and create a space for her daughter that is homely and suitable for her age.
S is a single mum with 2 dependent children, living in rented accommodation and currently claiming Universal Credit and Child Benefit. S is currently only able to afford the basics in the house. Now the children have to go back to school in the next week and she cannot afford to get them the needed uniform, and she has no relatives that can help her. This would be a great help for her and her children otherwise she doesn't know what she will do to get their uniforms.
This family of three were referred to me by their social worker. Fleeing domestic violence, the family have nothing except what they had on when they left as they had to leave quickly. They have moved to a new location many miles from family and friends, and they have been staying in a safe house. They have very little income as they are waiting for benefits to be sorted out. Please could you help to buy them a fridge freezer as well as some pots and pans?

J lives in Lancaster and needs £120 to buy school clothes for her 6 year old son who attends a local school. She separated from her partner after domestic violence and he refuses to help with money. This will probably be sorted out in the long term, but she needs money now because the boy has outgrown his previous clothes, including shoes. She lives on Universal Credit and has no savings. Please can you help with the £120 needed? Thanks.

P and her children currently use duvets and sleeping bags to sleep on which were donated when she left the hostel. P would appreciate 2 double bedsshe would share with her chidlren giving them a comfortable dignified good night sleep. Considering the home hasn't got any flooring, they are prone to catching colds sleeping on the floor on duvets and sleeping bags. Being able to get these 2 beds and kettle would mean so much to the family. They will also be able to use hotwater bottles.
