S is a single mum of a teenage girl and a baby boy of 11 months. C, her daughter, suffers badly from her mental health issues and has made 3 attempts on her life in the last 12 months as a cry for help. C needs a mobile phone to allow her to be in constant touch with family and support workers. Yesterday she smashed it in a crisis moment and it needs repairing in order to make it fully functional again. In good faith the mobile is already in for repair.
H has three young children and is struggling to make ends meet on her Universal Credit payments. Her son's bed frame has broken and he is now sleeping on just a mattress. The doors on his wardrobe have also broken and left it unusable. H has no spare money to be able to buy anything to replace it but a gift of £150 would allow her to buy a second hand bed and small wardrobe for his room.
This young child has been diagnosed with a brain tumour. As a result, he has flashbacks of the treatment he has endured thus far and it scares him, which results in angry outbursts and the feeling of hopelessness. Through counselling, he has started to manage his anger in a positive way and uses imagery as a way of communicating how he feels. Can we help him gain more from his sessions by extending them?
J is a single dad on a very low income, working long hours to support his young family. This request is made on behalf of his son who has outgrown his bed and very old mattress. He rarely gets a good night's sleep and his tiredness has been noted at the special school he attends. It has been adversely affecting his education. A new adult sized frame and a quality mattress will be a huge blessing to the family.
This young girl has had attachment issues since her father left the family home when she was a toddler. She has insomnia and cannot understand why she has two homes, and two places to sleep. Her Mum has sought professional help to support her and discuss her problems. Over the years the situation has deteriorated so help is needed to alleviate further deterioration in the child's health. Can we help her? Thank you.
N has two boys aged seven and ten and is living on Universal Credit. She separated from her fiancé last year and lived with her mum until recently when she was given Council Accommodation. She has managed to secure white goods, but has no money left with which to purchase a double bed for herself and a single mattress for one of her sons. N is looking for work, but it will be some time before she has saved enough for this and she would be so grateful for any help
K is a young, widowed mum of two teenage children who is experiencing real hardship and worry, due to her sons extreme mental health condition which requires regular intervention and twenty four hour care. His bed has just broken and both children need new school shoes and other clothes in order to get them through. Due to a recent ID theft, K does not have easy access to her accounts and this has caused her arrears to build up as her case is investigated.
This vulnerable family of eight includes an autistic son and multiple members of their family living with Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder. They currently have £100 a week after their rent and bills. We have so much admiration for this family who serve the community even though they themselves are so much in need. They may have their car taken away which will make life very difficult as they drive their son to a special school for his autism. Their washing machine has broken and they need a new one urgently.
A very brave Ukranian family have moved in nearby to The Wholesome Warehouse, three generations staying with a local friend. They now have most things which is great. Having spoken to "A", who has 4 children and 3 of them are boys, she wondered if I could get her some boys/mens slippers. It would be great to buy them new ones rather than second hand ones.They are so appreciative of everything, such a great family.
