£150 needed for a washing machine
From Northampton - 40 years old.
This client is a lone parent to two children, one 18 years old and one 9 years old. Her eldest daughter is at college, she has epilepsy which restricts her independence and causes her anxiety and low mood. Mum works part-time in a low paid role as a Care Assistant and is also in receipt Child Tax Credits and Child Benefit. This provides her with a very limited income and just covers their essential costs. Their washing machine has broken and they do not have the income to replace this.
