This client has debts she is repaying and her partner has moved in with her so her benefits have been stopped until they can be reassessed. She has 5 children and a foster child and her youngest son needs a school blazer and a pair of shoes because his are now far too small. Please can you help her in this difficult situation?
E has been on benefits for a long time. She has recently managed to attend interviews and has been offered a job in a local shop. She has no suitable clothing for working full time and has identified she can buy 5 basic trousers and 5 plain shirts at Tesco for the amount requested. She has footwear which saves her money, but this clothing will ensure she meets the dress standards at work. She is on a 6 month probationary period and is confident she will be permanent after this time.
L has moved from her home town due to domestic violence, with her 3 children. They have been offered a house but the kids need uniform to start their new school. Uniform, without logos, can be purchased from the local superstore for all three for the amount requested, a local scheme is providing coats and shoes, hats and scarves. Any assistance would be gratefully received, helping their new start to go smoothly.
