This family has one small child and another on the way, they are on a very low income. The dad works part time as a cleaner and mum is currently at home whilst pregnant. They are in receipt of Child Tax Credits and Child Benefits but this leaves them with very little income after essential costs. They have just moved into an unfurnished property, the floors are all concrete and they cannot afford carpets. Having rugs for the children to play on will make the home safer and more comfortable.
This mum of 5 works part time and receives a top up from Universal Credit. She is struggling to feed her family and pay bills so has no spare money for household repairs. The tiles in her kitchen and hallway are broken and are desperately in need of repair. Her children range from 2 years old upwards so the flooring can be a trip hazard for the little ones. Please would you help her to obtain the materials for new flooring? It would give her a boost of encouragement at this difficult time. Thank you.
A is homeless but has been taken in by his grandparents who are elderly and not well at the moment. He is on a list and waiting to hear from Housing about accommodation but in the meantime would like to buy food to help out while he lives with his grandparents. He is waiting for his Universal Credit payment to come through.
