Bare Floor Boards

GCF helped a single mum with one child, she had no contact with her child’s father since birth and little family support. Although working part-time and in receipt of basic wages and child benefit she had accumulated rent and council tax arrears but had sought support to help manage her debts issues. The local Housing Association has recently carried out some work on her home, rewiring, upgrading the central heating and removing the fireplace. However the compensation money due towards redecorating costs were with held by the Housing Association due to her outstanding rent arrears. The mum has partially decorated the home but was unable to afford the cost of replacement floor covering and her child was walking on bare floorboards. We provided basic carpets to lend a helping hand. If you would like to make a small donation to help someone in a similar position please visit our donation page #GlasgowCares
