A single mum of three, who suffers herself with mental health issues, was signposted to our agents from the homeless centre that they were living in. She is due to attend the next parenting group, and has the support of a social worker. However, the Mum needs a mattress for the toddler's bed and is struggling to find any money towards this. We sent across £100 to the family, hopefully allowing a little left over after buying the mattress, so that the family can have a small treat.

We were asked to help a single mother who has been desperately trying to get her life back on track. She is currently in receipt of Universal Credit and is using that to take care of herself and her young daughter, but is struggling to make ends meet. Previously she worked as a carer and enjoyed doing that, but to be able to get employment in a similar field she needs to have a DBS (Disclosure and Baring Service Check) done, but cannot afford to do that herself so it is in place ready for being given a job. We agreed to cover the cost of that so that she can turn their lives around.
