Patricia lives with her partner and three children in rented accommodation and they are both in receipt of benefits as they have mental health problems. Patricia needs help purchasing school uniforms and shoes for her two oldest children and would be grateful for any help you can provide.
M is street homeless and is finding it difficult to manage with his provisions. He desperately needs a waterproof warm coat and strong waterproof boots. Although it is slowly warming up it is still very cold at night. We can provide sleeping bags and other clothes but not good quality outerwear he needs. He finds it v difficult to go indoors although working with him on the fears he has of being abused. But in the meantime he needs help to stay safe outside. Thank you so much for your help.
this 62 year old lady is the sole carer for her 9 year old grandson. He has had some problems at school and she has been home schooling for several months, however she felt she was not the best teacher and so she has been using her child benefit on extra tuition. He has now settled quite well into a new school and they both seem comfortable with this new arrangement. He now needs a school uniform and shoes in order to fit in with his peers.
H, a new arrival from Spain with 4 children, works 2 days a week. Her oldest child has an offer of State School but would have to buy uniforms and school dinner. H's husband is expected to join the family in October. H has applied for the social benefits, and is waiting for the outcome, but she now needs help with the cost of uniform and school Meals.
R was left with two children when her husband moved out. He does not support them. R can manage day to day just about but struggles for extras. Her two teenage daughters need uniforms and this grant will go a long way to providing them.

Karen is finding it difficult to find the money to buy the uniform and would be really grateful for any help that can be given. Thank you.
J is a hard-working single mum, and despite thrifty spending and working at her job locally, she is still struggling to make ends meet. She has three children, two at secondary school, and one of them is in desperate need of a new blazer. Your contribution to this cause would help this family so much and also the child would be able to have a jacket that fits properly. Thank you.
