A soon to be (in 5 days) Mum, expecting her first child was highlighted as being in extreme stress and in need. She had received her maternity grant and used it to buy things for the baby, but was without a washing machine or sufficient food. She had when we spoke to her enough food if she stretched it to last her two days.
It was agreed that £250 be sent to her, to go towards the purchase of a washing machine and to buy some food so she could stay properly nourished to provide for the baby and take care of herself. She was also given some benefit advice and assistance to resolve a small debt issue.
