£0 remaining for food and energy bills
The family where referred to us after they where found to be in desperate need of support. They currently have pre-settled status and have very low income. They have two young children which has also left them choosing between eating, paying bills or paying debt. The mother has also recently been diagnosed with a serious medical condition which means she cannot work. They currently have £80 to last for the next eight weeks. This support would help them buy food and pay energy bills.
This lady is self-employed, running a community organisation for women's mental health. She is separated from her partner, who left her and the children in debt with all the bills when he went back to his own country. Due to all the stress, mum has had some time off work and, therefore, there has been a loss in wages this year and she is going further into debt as the months go by. This lady needs her car to earn her living and transport her children to school, but the car needs repairs.

I am working with a single parent who has five dependent children. Mum is living on a very low monthly income and is struggling to make ends meet. Her mum has just passed away and she cannot afford the travel costs to attend the funeral. A one-off payment would cover her flight to Lagos and allow her to properly commemorate her mum and to be with her family at this difficult time. This parent is attending appointments with our debt advisor.

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.
