Our case this time is a young single mum of four children. She has had a very troubled life, finding herself repeatedly in abusive relationships. At one point she was kidnapped and attacked by some men unknown to her. This has left her with extreme anxiety and unable to trust anyone. Three of the four children live with her, and the two youngest do not have mattresses on their beds, although she has bed frames for them. She sleeps on the sofa and allows the children to sleep in her bed. We were asked to consider sending her some money so that she could buy some mattresses and bedding for each of the beds so that they can all have a decent nights sleep. We agreed to send her £100 to be able to do this.
