Miss C was originally living with her partner, however they separated and she left the property taking no furniture with her. From here, she sofa surfed for a year staying on friends' sofas while trying to save for a property of her own. She then became pregnant and managed to secure a property but has no furniture. Friends have helped with a lot of household goods but she is still without some furniture such as curtains and wardrobes for when the child arrives, can you please help?

Therefore although her son attends school regularly he can't see his friends outside of school. He enjoyed school clubs for football and rugby which were stopped due to Covid-19. He has said he would like to have some swimming lessons to boost his confidence and self esteem. Please help this family.

She has often felt unable cope with daily living and her older children have often been left to care for their younger siblings. T has not worked as she battled with illnesses and they have been surviving off limited benefits.
