Miss R is in her late 40’s and has acute mental health problems. She has recently been re-housed after being homeless. Her previous landlord sold the property she was living in and as a result she became homeless. She has come into the new property with hardly any items given that she was homeless. At the moment, with charity shops being closed she is unable to find any clothes that she is able afford. She also currently has no bedding.
M has 50% custody of his three children, but they are with him full time at the moment as Mum is in hospital. He cannot get into the family home and they only have a few items of clothes with them as they didn't realise how long they would be staying with their Dad. He cannot afford to buy clothing, shoes and underwear as he is only on Universal Credit, and with the current restrictions charity shops are not an option. Please can you help him to buy some essential clothes for his children whilst they are living with him? Thank you.
M, 21, was recently released from custody and only has the clothes he was wearing when he was released. He has no family support and is on Universal Credit and is unable to afford any new clothing. Please give towards this to give M the basic needs of extra pairs of boxers, socks, some trousers, joggers, t-shirts, jumpers and a jacket. Furthermore, M is in need of an electricity top-up as he recently ran out and doesn't get paid for 4 weeks. M is working closely with us to move forwards with his life.
K is a carer for her 24-year-old son who has health and learning difficulties. K herself has mental health problems, and finds it hard to cope. They are getting some help with debt and rent arrears, but there is no money available for extra expenses. Both mother and son need clothes and, in particular, footwear, as what they have is worn out.
