A dad found himself as sole carer of his three children, after they were placed in his care, due to the alcohol dependence of their mother. The father left the home when the situation became impossible for him to continue with anymore. He is now trying to provide his three sons with a safe and secure place to live. The stress of the situation caused him to lose his job and he is currently in the process of claiming Job Seekers Allowance. The family have the support of a social worker to help them get things sorted out, such as getting the child benefit and child tax credits transferred to him in his name. He is in desperate need of a fridge, freezer and a vacuum cleaner which they were hoping to get hold of secondhand. We agreed to send him £150 to help him out, plus an extra £50 for the children.
