C suffers from agoraphobia, anxiety and depression. She hardly leaves her home. She relies on her adult son to help her with shopping, etc. C claims Employment and Support Allowance and has put in a claim for Personal Independence Payment but has not yet heard anything. Her fridge/freezer has totally broken which meant that she had to throw out all her frozen food. She is now living on canned and dried food. This is bad for her budget and for her diet. She is quite a vulnerable lady.
S is a single mother living in rented accommodation, currently claiming Employment & Support Allowance, Personal Independence Payment, Child Tax Credits and Child Benefit. S suffers from multiple physical health problems especially with her back. She would like help with an Inversion table to decompress her spine which would do wonders for her pain management and mobility. This has been recommended by her GP but she is unable to afford this on her own and needs some help. Thank You.
