D is a single mother with two sons aged eleven and nine years old. Mum works full time in Admin and as a Spanish translator. She has also applied for Universal Credit. They recently moved from temporary accommodation to permanent Social Housing, where there was no furniture or white goods. We have obtained some items for the family, but they still need bunk beds for the boys who have been sleeping on the floor since the end of June. These items would complete their family home.

H has eight children, the youngest, who is six months old, is in hospital with a heart condition and one child is at a special school. Five of them are of school age and two are changing schools this September, meaning H will only have to pick them up from two schools. H and her husband are reliant on benefits and are worried about how to pay for the new uniforms. This money would mean that the children can make a good start at their new school and would take a load off H, who also visits her baby daily.

Unfortunately, L's partner, the boys' father, was made redundant, due to Covid, and has not been able to find work since. They are not claiming benefits and circumstances are very tight for them. They would really appreciate your help at this time.
