S and her children have recently moved into a new house. It is completely unfurnished and so they are trying to source the items they need. They have been able to obtain most of these things but S would like to buy a television for her children, so that they can watch together at home as a family. S is a single mother claiming Universal Credit and so is on a low income. She can't afford to buy this herself. Any support would be greatly appreciated.
C is a parent who has recently fled from her partner after domestic abuse. Her original mobile phone was broken by her partner and as she is financially challenged she is unable to purchase another. Without the mobile she considers herself very venerable, which in turn makes her anxious about her family. Can we help her get a cheap one so she can feel secure again? Thank you.

M has just had a 10 month hospital admission after experiencing difficulties with her mental health. She is in the process of readjusting to life back into the community. She is currently unemployed and has low income from benefits. She lives alone and is isolated from friends and family, and spending a lot of time alone with her thoughts is not helping her mental health. A television would give her connection to the outside world and help her to rebuild her mental health.
