Woman facing short-term financial difficulties

A single mum of a 14 year old, who was previously in full-time employment, has been unable to work for the past six weeks due to sickness.  She is waiting on further investigations and is unsure about when she will be able to return.  She is in receipt of working and child tax credits, as well as statutory sickness payments, but is facing the fact that she will struggle to meet her rent and council tax obligations.  We agreed to send her £50 to help her out.
