M lost her daughter to suicide last year and due to too many memories etc. in the home she was supported by us to move into a bungalow to be near friends and family to support her during this period of grief. M is in very poor mental and physical health and is limited to walking a few steps due to COPD and swollen ankles due to a heart defect. M now lives in a bungalow with a garden however due to the costs of moving she has been unable to afford to purchase any garden furniture and would love to be able to sit outside with friends and family.
This lady has a 2 year old son and has just secured her first tenancy in June. She has been living with her parents, her and her young son sharing a room. Due to her son getting older and needing his own space and a bigger bed, mum has moved. Had she registered with the council as an ‘overcrowding’ issue, she would have been entitled to a white goods package, but she and her family did not know this at the time. She would be very grateful for any help to get a cooker.
