We are seeking help for S who has suffered mental health issues for many years. He wishes to start working under the Supported Permitted Work as a Reiki practitioner but cannot possibly find the funds to purchase a chair which would permit him to set up a mobile practice. His support worker knows this "gift" will not only improve his self esteem and life chances but give him a real purpose in life. Thank you for any help you can offer.
Single unemployed dad caring for Josh, his15 year old son who has autism. The neighbours on either side of this little family are related and cross backwards and forwards to each other across the garden. This has distressed Josh to such a degree he now refuses to go into the garden. Previously he had enjoyed using his trampoline. Dad and Josh are willing to fence the garden in such a way that the top half can still be used as a thoroughfare thus not alienating theese neighbours.
Khalid is from Sudan and has had to flee. He has lived in the UK for 2 years, but the government has not accepted his claim for asylum. He is currently destitute and is attending English classes. As a charity we are helping him with housing and food, but he really needs a bike to get to see his friends and to get to his English classes. This money would buy a second hand bike, lights, helmet and lock. It would make a big difference to his well-being
