£0 remaining for a washing machine
M is a young carer, aged nineteen, to her father who suffers with his mental health and recently almost died due to suicide. She has recently got her first flat and needs some bigger items; particularly a washing machine, as her father has now been sectioned and is not allowed to go back to his home. M only has a couple of weeks to move and it is very overwhelming for her. She works part-time, but a lot of her earnings went into fund helping her father, so she has no spare money.
J is now living in his own home, after release from prison, which is in supported housing. He has managed to furnish much of it through gifts and grants from various charities, however, he still has no bed or television. We would like to gift him these with £120 for a bed frame and mattress, and £40 for a television.

Safe Families are working with this mum who had a baby boy in October. She has asked for support to buy a single mattress, as her current mattress has springs popping out, causing discomfort and lack of sleep. Mum doesn’t have the funds to afford bigger items like this. Her and her mam can contribute some money towards it, so we would like to support her with a £100 Argos voucher and empower her to pay the rest. Together we have found a mattress that costs £179. We hope this will make a big difference to mum's sleep.
Still £40 left to donateTotal needed £100.00
Safe Families are working with this mum and her son. During a visit, mum showed us her room, where she is currently sleeping on an air mattress with a blanket. We would like to provide her with a voucher to empower her to chose a new bed for herself. This isn't something mum would be able to afford on her own, without your kind donations. We hope this will make a big difference to mum's sleep and stop her getting back pains.
