This single mum of 2 small children is going through a very difficult custody battle. She is struggling to keep afloat financially during Covid-19 because of the cost of this custody battle. She would very much appreciate support with electricity and oil, and she would be very grateful for any donation you could give.
This client is a single mum who split with her partner during the lockdown. She had to apply for child maintenance as her ex partner was being unreasonable. There is a backlog of getting maintenance support. During lockdown she was furloughed, she had a leak in the property and needed to replace carpet and then her cooker broke. She has had to have microwave meals for her and her three children. She is just going back to work now but the children's usual childcare is closed and now an additional cost.
This is a family of two adults, two boys aged 1 and 3 years, and a baby girl on the way. They have been in temporary emergency accommodation for almost 1 year but have finally got a home of their own. Unfortunately they have very little money (Dad has been trying to get a job but due to Covid-19 has so far been unsuccessful) and the house has no carpets at all and they don’t have a cooker either. Please will you consider donating so they can get at least a second hand cooker and some carpet for at least 1 or 2 rooms. Thank you.
P is a single man living in a house in multiple occupations. He is struggling with his mental health, made worse as result of the Covid-19 restrictions. His TV has broken beyond repair and this is adding to his sense of isolation. He would therefore like help to buy a new TV / DVD player. He is being supported by the Salvation Army.
