The client came to us in desperate need of a washing machine as her old machine had recently broken. She struggled a lot during lockdown but managed to keep her head above water. However, now her washing machine has broken and she has no extra income to replace it and has had to resort to washing clothes for her family of 4 by hand in the bath. This support would allow for a new washing machine to be bought, delivered and fitted.
C is a victim of domestic violence and a mum of two boys aged 4 and 6. Their fridge/freezer has broken down and she is unable to buy a new one due to being in receipt of benefits. Any spare money she had saved was used to purchase new school uniforms, shoes and coats for the children going back to school. C is in desperate need and would really appreciate any assistance to purchase a new one to be able to buy cheap affordable food and batch cook nutritious meals for her children.
J is a single father living on Universal Credit. His fridge/freezer has broken down beyond repair. He is receiving food from a local church foodbank but needs help to keep food fresh for himself and his son. Any help you could provide to get him a new fridge/freezer would be really appreciated.
This client is a single mum of six referred to our project from social workers. Three of her children have been recently diagnosed with additional needs. Through our visit we noticed that one child does not have a bed. Mum does not have any income apart from benefits that cover her day to day living, and she is unable to put any money aside for extras. Could you help with the cost of a bed for her child?
R's daughter is on long-term palliative care living at home with her husband and 2 children (one of whom has brittle bone disease). R acts as a carer for her daughter and does the whole family's laundry as part of that. Due to R's daughter's open wounds she needs fresh sheets daily. R's condenser dryer is broken, the glass door is cracked and it's dangerous to use. She badly needs a new dryer to cope with the amount of laundry she does every week.
