S is expecting her 2nd baby next month and is unable to work due to having Crohn's disease and depression. Her partner is also unable to work due to injury. They have managed to get some baby equipment donated, but are struggling financially and have asked for help for when the baby arrives.
S suffers with Fibromyalgia and has three young children. She is awaiting the outcome of a Universal Credit work capability assessment and Personal Independence Payment appeal. Her washing machine has broken and she is unable to afford a replacement. She is having to rely on friends to do her washing for her. She is currently working alongside our Support Worker.
After a troubled year, this young father has sole care of his baby and toddler. They are working well with Families First, doing okay and managing on a low income. His washing machine has broken down and he has tried to get it repaired but it is not possible. They do not have the money to replace it, so he is struggling with the daily wash for the children. At this time, the gift of a washing machine would be a real blessing to them.
