This lady's cooker is broken so she cannot cook hot food for her family. She has been refused Universal Credit although she has been granted residency. She has arthritis and a slipped disc in her back so is unable to work. She is trying to get help with her benefit situation from Citizens Advice. She has been in the country for 11 years but has had many problems understanding the system and is only able to communicate in English with agencies with the help of her son. Any help to provide her with a cooker would be really appreciated.
This client is a young single mum aged 19 years old on benefits who has just been given a home. It is her first home and she is in need of a fridge freezer. This will help her with the cost of cooking and storing her baby’s food but she cannot afford to buy one herself. Can you help?
We are supporting an older Mum who lives alone with her 5 year old son and has no washing machine. The little boy is on the pathway for ADHD and has challenging behaviour. Mum has suffered from previous domestic abuse and has severe anxiety. Having no washing machine is causing her a great deal of extra work and is time consuming. The family have few resources and this added stress means she is struggling to manage. Please can we help the family by enabling them to get a washing machine. Many Thanks.
This Mum is a single parent to 5 children aged between 5 to 19 years old. The eldest child has learning and physical disabilities including being blind. The family have been through a difficult time and have recently moved home. Mum has suffered domestic abuse and has poor mental health. The family's fridge/freezer has broken and they cannot afford to replace this. The family have no support and limited resources, the fridge/freezer is needed for them all to ensure good health and food hygiene. Many thanks.
This Mum has 3 young children and has little support. Mum's eldest child is 8 years old and has autism, he has challenging behaviour and cannot be left alone. At present Mum is struggling to keep the children safe as she has no stair gates so cannot leave the younger children in a room safely, or her son, as he has no awareness of danger. Mum has little resources and for safety reasons would find the stair gates really helpful. Many thanks.
This client is a young mother working full time on a low wage. She is in desperate need of a cooker as hers has broken, she can raise part of the money towards one but not all of it. It would cost more money to get it fixed than it would to buy a new one. This is causing her a lot of stress as eating properly is so important to her. She will not go into debt for an oven as this would bring a lot of hardship which she does not want.
This Mum is parent to 5 children aged between 3 and 10 years old. Mum lives with her partner who is Dad to her 3 year old twins. Mum has a 6 year old son who is on the autistic spectrum and her 5 year old son has been through a very difficult time. Mum suffers with poor mental health and anxiety due to a previous domestically violent relationship and struggles with the demands of a young family. A tumble dryer would help alleviate some of this stress of caring for the family and keep her health stable. Many thanks.
J is a single father who is currently jobless. His tumble dryer and TV are broken and his only income is from Universal Credit. He is being helped with food from the Fareshare Food Bank at East Oldham Methodist church. Could you help him to replace these items?
M has recently been granted 'leave to remain' in the United Kingdom. He has no family support and is a vulnerable young man who is trying to be independent. He needs a cooker to help with cooking on a budget. He is being supported by the Ancora 'Help through crisis' project.
This young lady is a single parent moving into her first home with her baby. She is on benefits and doesn’t have a washing machine. She doesn't have any spare money at the moment, so could you help her? A washing machine would make this stressful time a little easier for them.
