Our lone parent client has unfortunately not been able to care for her children due to serious health issues. The children are in temporary foster care, but she has been able to organise contact over three separate days during the school holidays. As she has not been able to work for several months now, she is trying to maintain the family home on a drastically reduced income. Your support would enable her to pay for necessary transport and activities with the children during the access period.
