This client is a single Mum of 6 children who are aged between 8 and 16 years of age. Currently they are all sharing beds with Mum on the couch downstairs. The family have little space and no one is getting a good night's sleep. Mum suffers with poor mental health, previous domestic abuse, and also has physical problems which are made worse by not having a bed to sleep in. Please can we get the family a bunk bed for two of the children to free some space in their home. Many thanks.
A young single Mum of two children has recently moved out of the supported accommodation and been given a property in the community which is unfurnished. Mum is working really hard to make the home suitable, she has little resources and is isolated. The children's clothes are piled up in the room and constantly getting knocked and dirty as there is nowhere to put them. Please can we help the family to get a wardrobe for the children and a dinning room table to eat from as a family. Thank you.
A young single Mum of two young children has no freezer. Mum is finding it difficult to manage without one and it is affecting the food she can buy. With Christmas coming so soon the family would really benefit from having an under counter freezer as she just has a small fridge at present. Many thanks.
Can you help B, who has recently been re-housed in Lancaster and needs bedroom furniture? He was previously sofa surfing and also living in his car. He receives Universal Credit and has debts that Citizens Advice are helping him with. He does occasional agency work, but this can mess up his Universal Credit payments due to its occasional nature. He is doing his best to get his life back on track. Please can you help with £120 to buy some furniture?
A is a father of five who has been living in the UK, and his family have just arrived from Iran to live with him. However the family have no furniture. We have gifted them some furniture but they now need a washing machine for their clothes. This would make a really big difference as they look to settle into a new country.
M has always worked but had to stop 10 weeks ago because of health issues. He has 2 young children and has been without income pending the receipt of Universal Credit. Their cooker is broken and he cant afford to replace it. The family are also behind with council tax and water bill payments.
This young man has been in his accommodation since June and still does not have a fridge freezer for his flat. Having one would mean that he could keep food and therefore be cost effective when shopping - rather than shopping for each day as it comes. Please help us to meet this need for him.
