I am supporting a single mum to try and overcome barriers such as family court, domestic abuse, low income, some housing debts, education, training and skills. She is facing several significant issues but she is engaged with us in trying to try and overcome them. Her buggy broke this morning and she has 2 young children. £50 would allow her to buy a second hand pram so she can get to appointments with her children safely. Thank you.
J and M are struggling with keeping their car running. The latest MOT and repairs are too much for them to afford, but the car is essential to their travel to work. J and M are on a low income, but both work full time. Their income stretches further than most as they have recently adopted two children and need to provide for them too. They are a very loving family and so generous with their time and hospitality. It would be fantastic to help them keep their car on the road.
K is a single mum of 5 and lives on income support. After K has paid rent, bills etc she doesn't have any money left, and uses foodbanks. Two of her children are at school and she needs uniform for them. The school has helped with £40, but that only paid for 2 jumpers each. The children need jumpers, t-shirts, trousers, shoes and stationary for both children, which comes to well over £200. K would be very grateful for any help, thank you.
R has recently suffered a house fire and her family have to move out of the property for a minimum of 6 months. Although they had house insurance they still have to buy clothing and toys etc for their two young children so that they can try to keep things as normal as possible. £120 would be gratefully received towards the children's replacement dance costumes so they can continue their classes and competitions.
A would really like to take her grandchildren for a day trip but she is struggling financially. She had saved money but that now has to go on car repairs so any help would go towards A being able to take her grandchildren out for the day, giving them a happy memory and giving her daughter a rest for the day.
