£0 remaining for a bed with drawers, a mattress and bedding
This single mum has significant medical problems causing her almost continuous discomfort. She receives Child Benefit, Universal Credit and Personal Independence Payment. Mum has moved to a secure tenancy which is completely unfurnished. She has incurred debts, due to misunderstandings, and continues to pay back arrears, putting a huge strain on her low income. Mum's four year old has outgrown her cot and now sleeps with her. A single bed with drawers, a mattress and bedding would enhance her daughter's independence, improve storage and allow them both to sleep better.
