Request: Donations / Gifts / Kind messages

This week, we’d like to help a woman called Irene and her 5 year old daughter.

Irene and her daughter have been moving between women’s refuges and temporary accommodation for the past 5 years, after Irene fled a violent relationship. Most of the accommodation they were placed in had no furniture - Irene even had to sleep on the floor with her newborn daughter.

They have just relocated to a new area, where they know no-one, and have moved into more permanent accommodation. Her daughter has also started a new school - her fifth one in two years.

They were nominated by their support worker, who asked if we could help to create a proper home for them both. For Irene’s daughter, this will be the first permanent home she has ever had. We’d love to make sure they have everything they need.
