£150 remaining for a school uniform
S has been working with Christians Against Poverty for several years and applied for a grant to cover her two older children's school uniforms for this coming year, but was refused. She works part time and, during the holidays, is trying to work as many shifts as she can to earn enough to buy the new uniform, whilst also caring for her mother who is terminally ill. Providing some help for her to be able to buy the school uniforms would be just one thing less for her to worry about.
In a fortnight's time, J is having a major operation and part of his bowel will be removed to treat a Cancerous Tumour. He will need to live downstairs, on the same floor as the bathroom and; therefore, needs to buy a single bed. As part of the Travelling Community, he has no recourse to any discretionary grants and, given his age, is very vulnerable. Please can someone reach out to him before he goes in for his operation? Thank you!
