£150 needed for a new washing machine
From Sheffield - 35 years old.
The applicant is single with an 11 year old. Her partner was a drug-user and she was also an addict. She has now been clean for 10 years but it has meant she has no qualifications to secure a job. She struggles day to day with mental health, coping by keeping busy ensuring a clean, tidy house. This is relevant as they both suffer dust allergies. Clothes and bedding are cleaned regularly. The washing machine is broken so they have to journey to her mother's house to do the washing. A new machine would really help.
