L is a single parent, living solely off of Universal Credit. She is living in privately rented accommodation and the rent exceeds the benefit cap. She relies on the food bank to supplement her feeding her children and L often goes without. Two of her boys are at secondary school but L does not have the funds to buy them the correct uniform and the children have been receiving unpleasant remarks about the clothing they currently wear. L wants her children to be happy in school and having the correct uniform would make such a difference. Any support would be so appreciated.
Our client has come to us for help with her debts. She is dealing with others’ anti?social behaviour, PTSD, and health issues. She recently left home due to domestic violence. She is just managing on benefits awarded to her, whilst we move forward with her debt plans. She is an expectant mum, and will be caring for the baby on her own. We would like to help to give her & her baby a great start, by providing some grocery vouchers to buy some clothes, bedding, and other initial new baby needs.
