Mother flees domestic violence

Our agents asked us if we would consider helping a young mum of two children, ages 2 and 4.  They have had to leave their family home and are currently living in refuge accommodation.  When they arrived they had the clothes they wear wearing and she had a few items of clothing for the children.  All the benefits she receives goes to pay for the refuge accommodation as well as paying back her Universal Credit advance.  Our agents are concerned that she really needs some changes of clothes, specifically underwear, and some toiletry items.  We agreed to send the family £150 to help with this.

No clothes, no shoes!

A homeless charity were supporting a young girl who had no spare clothing, nor spare shoes.  They desperately needed size 6 clothes and size 4 shoes.  We got in touch with them to see if we could help, who responded by saying they'd had some clothes and shoes donated to give to her.  They had secured accommodation for her, donated plenty of food and assisted with applying for benefits.  They asked if we could possibly send a small amount of money instead to tider her over until her first benefit payment could be made.  So we sent £50 today for them to pass on to her.
