We have been working with a lady who lives on her own. She receives support from a mental health worker once a week. She suffers from PTSD, Bi-Polar, anxiety, arthritis and fibromyalgia. Her side fence has blown down and the panels have broken. This is causing her anxiety and sometime panic attacks as she feels 'everyone is watching her' which triggers her PTSD. She feels the fence made her feel safe. Several fence panels need to be replaced and old posts in concrete removed and redone.

L is a single mother to 2 children. Her and her ex-husband went into business together many years ago. Her ex-husband mismanaged the business, and then declared bankruptcy. As all debts attached to the business were also in L's name, she has been repaying them alone ever since. This leaves her with very little every month to feed her and her children. Furthermore, her Universal Credit has just been reduced, as well as her child maintenance payments from her ex-husband. Pls help L afford food this month.
P is a 42 year old single woman who was her father's full-time carer until he recently passed away. He received a car as part of his disability benefits which has now been taken away. P lives in a village outside Bristol and is in dire need of a bike to get around. Sadly, P is struggling financially and has some debts so cannot afford one. Things have been really hard since her father passed away and a bike would transform her life. Thank you.
