Mum, who has epilepsy, is a single parent with two children. She isn't working at the moment and is struggling financially. They would love to have a large outdoor storage box to safely store her children’s electric scooters and bikes. Currently, they have to store them indoors because they are electric and this has led to a clustered living area with not much space for her children to play. This outdoor storage box would also help mum to improve and keep on top of the home conditions.

Mum, a single parent looking after her three children, is struggling with her mental health and also struggling financially. Mum doesn't have any furniture to store clothes and they are piling up around the home. Having a wardrobe will ease the pressure of living with clothes piled up, and improve the home conditions. This will provide mum with space to rest and relax, which will also improve her parenting and feelings towards living in the home.
