We were made aware of a young Mum with five young children. Her partner had recently moved in with her and they had correctly notified Tax Credits of the change of circumstances. However, this meant that the child tax credits payments were suspended while their claim was being looked into. This money she relied on to feed the children, and with it being school holidays, at least at school the children would have received one full meal per day. We agreed to send over £200 for them to do a decent food shop with, in the hopes that with clever shopping this would tide them over until the tax credits claim could be reinstated.
