Grandmother takes on full-time care of her grandchildren

Our agents contacted us to find out if we could help a grandmother who has taken on the sole care of her three  grandchildren, ages 14, 8 and 4 years respectively.  Their mother, her daughter died two years ago, so the children moved in with her.  She had to give up her full-time job and now relies on Income Support, housing benefit, child benefit and tax credits.  Her rent is completely covered by housing benefit, but they have recently been moved as a family into a larger social housing property.  She is faced with needing items for their new home, plus school uniforms for the children.  We agreed between us to send her £200 to help her buy what she needs.
