This week, we’d like to help a woman called Gabby and her two year old son. When Gabby fell pregnant, her relationship with her family broke down and she had to move out. She went to live with her cousin and had the baby while she was staying there.
Gabby had undiagnosed post-natal depression and the relationship with her cousin also broke down. Gabby and her little boy ended up homeless.
They were placed in temporary accommodation and recently moved into a permanent housing association flat. Their social worker managed to provide them with a few essential things but – in her words – Gabby’s flat is ‘bleak’.
She worries about Gabby’s state of mind and also about her toddler running around on cold, hard floor. Gabby has now been diagnosed with depression and is going to be able to get the support she needs. With your help, we’d like to help create a lovely home for her and her son.
