This is for a single mum of five children. She has been a victim of abuse from two partners spanning over 20 years. She has received very little support and she has finally reached the end of her ability to cope. She would like professional support to begin to deal with her emotions and all that has been done to her over the years. We are able to offer her counselling but this requires a one-off fee to access it which she does not have. Counselling would be life changing for her and allow her to feel heard and valued.
This lady is in a refuge but is being moved to a new home shortly. She has a teenage daughter with a mental age of four who has many disabilities. The daughter needs special medicine which must be refrigerated and so she must have a fridge in her new home as soon as she gets there. This request is for your help to buy a small counter-top fridge to store the medicine so that she can start her new life.
Mr B has a learning disability and has poor mental health. He is in receipt of benefits. He has secured this tenancy after being street homeless and we have assisted him with obtaining cooking items and white goods and applying for the correct benefits. He is now very anxious about people being able to see into his flat. He has asked for help with obtaining blinds and his friend has said they will assist him with fitting them. He believes that having privacy will help his anxiety and mental health which he feels are getting worse.
