£150 needed for a cooker
From Mitcham, Surrey - 25 years old.
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.
