This family have come into difficulties due to changing onto universal credit. They have no money coming in until this is sorted. With 5 children they are in desperate need to purchase winter shoes and wellington boots. S helps out at the church children's group and although a newcomer in the community she is making a great attempt at integrating.
G has a number of health issues which means she is unable to work. She relies on benefits and is currently appealing a benefit decision which is adding to her stress. She struggles to pay for life's necessities and as winter progresses has no suitable footwear, jumpers or trousers. She is in desperate need of these to stay warm. Any help would make a huge difference to G's situation.
Sadly our client had to flee from her home due to an abusive partner, the police were involved but by the time they confirmed it was safe for her to return to her previous home to collect her personal belongings the ex-partner had destroyed all her things. Please help her with a donation to buy some clothes, shoes and microwave, as she has no cooker in the temporary flat she has been given. Thank you.
A is profoundly deaf and finds it almost impossible to get a job due to his disability. He also finds it hard to make ends meet, despite his benefit entitlement. He turned up at Citizens Advice without any waterproof shoes or raincoat, because he can't afford them. His health is bound to suffer in winter unless he can buy leak-proof shoes and a cagoule, and he would be very grateful for a kind donation to meet the cost.
