S has benefited from her first counselling sessions in 2019, but she still needs support. She is responding well with her counsellor as she works through her traumatic past, including child abuse, drugs, adult domestic abuse and total loss of self-esteem. The additional counselling should see the breakthrough she seeks.
N is a single mum to a 9 year old son. Her partner left them both with no warning, emptied all the bank accounts and hasn't been in contact to support them since then. She sold everything she had to keep their house, but they were made homeless because she couldn't keep up with all the bills. They have been living in a hostel but now have the chance of a local authority place to live. It has no white goods and they cannot afford anything. We can source a second hand fridge freezer for them with this money. Thank you.
E has had a challenging childhood and struggled to parent her children, who are in the care of extended family. Her little baby is currently very unwell, and professionals agree that E would really benefit from some counselling to give her the best chance of being able to care well for this precious baby - she's never been offered this. We would match-fund the £120 as a church for a course of counselling to best resource her as a mum and give this new family unit the very best chance of happiness.
This man was categorised as homeless. Now, after a year, he has been given a bed sit to rent but it is unfurnished. He has no money to buy white goods or furniture, and desperately needs a fridge freezer so that he doesn't have to buy fresh goods all the time. Your help to give him a positive fresh start would be really appreciated.
M struggles to manage his anger. He has a young family, he and his wife are getting worried about his situation. The survival of his marriage is dependent on him getting help to curb his anger. Counselling will hopefully help him to do this, and he would be really grateful for any donations towards a fresh start for this family.
V was abused and molested as a child and its knock-on effects have continued into her adulthood. Until now she has had no help to work through her issues. Relationships are hard to keep and as a result of this it has affected her self-worth with feelings of inadequacy.
C is a single mum, separated due to domestic violence, who works as a radiographer for the NHS. She manages to cover all her rent and bills, but there is nothing left to pay for any out-of-school activities for her children. She sometimes has to access the foodbank. Her son aged 13 would like to do his Duke of Edinburgh bronze award. The school will pay for half but Mum can't afford the other half. Doing the award would really help her son, who has suffered as a result of the home situation.
