is vital for the ever-increasing number of people who fall through the net of other aid agencies and can find nowhere else to turn. Social Workers, Hospitals and Citizens' Advice Bureaux around the country rely on Miracles for a rapid response for families in the shadow of terminal sickness, for child carers living in poverty and for individual cases of extreme need.
MIRACLES IN THE UK…
Since 1994 Miracles has been providing a vital service to those in supreme need here in the UK. Today, we are top of the calling list for Citizens' Advice Bureaux, Social Workers and major children’s hospitals – including Great Ormond Street and the Royal Marsden – for 'rapid response' funding on behalf of their most needy cases.
The following are a few examples of the type of cases coming to us for help…
An abandoned mother with two sick children (one with terminal leukaemia) threatened with eviction from their home because of rent arrears. £500 will stall the landlords taking action while a CAB debt Counsellor works to alleviate the situation.
An African family not yet entitled to Benefits: jobless and homeless, needing temporary accommodation for a short period while Social Services deal with their problems.
An elderly Grandmother caring for three young children (one receiving cancer treatment) referred to Miracles by their hospital for a desperately needed short respite break. Cost: £1,000.
Miracles Crisis Grants are awarded for:
Interim one-off grants may also be considered for Crisis Funding pending benefits being sought or one-off payments to prevent disconnection of household services.
Please help Miracles to help those in supreme need.
