This client is in temporary housing fleeing domestic violence. She has both mental and physical health issues which are limiting her ability to work and care for her 2 young children. V is trying to look to the future by addressing her debt problems before they totally grind her down.
C and her 3 small children were housed in a flat by Fledge (a charity that helps vulnerable and homeless young people) a few years ago and have recently moved to a council flat. She has been managing well under a budget that Christians Against Poverty (CAP) set out for her following a Debt Relief Order. She has been doing so well over the last few months and slowly getting back on her feet, but sadly her washing machine has broken and needs replacing. She hopes you can help her as there is nothing in the budget to cover this. Thank you
This low income family has a child who has special educational needs. She has recently moved to a new school which can better meet those needs. The family can't afford to buy her a new uniform having already bought a one in September. We'd like to help!
F is a very confused child that is suffering from the bereavement of her Grandfather. She is struggling with worry, anxiety, making friends at school, and is a serious worry to her parents. F is extremely anxious about the exams she is due to take and this has resulted in her becoming a recluse. Edify are helping her but her parents need the support to provide her with counselling as they are struggling financially.
This 12 year old boy has been removed from his parents and is now living with other family who are struggling to meet the additional financial demands of looking after him. His biggest current need is clothing, as he didn't bring much with him when he was removed from his parental home.
We are supporting a family with 3 children and the middle child aged 7 is sadly losing her sight. We are starting the process of applying for disability benefits but this will take some time. Mum, herself, has heath conditions and needs support. Due to her daughter's sight problems, her clothes get very messy and dirty, especially at school as she cannot see where paint etc is spilling and loses uniform as she doesn't see when things have dropped. A replacement school sweatshirt would be great.
