    Try https://www.familyfund.org.uk

    You could also try Freecycle or Freegle, Gumtree or Ebay.

    Depending on your son's disability, you might be able to get help directly from an association to do with that disability.

    Google 'grants for disabled children', or 'grants+town that you live in'

    i feel sorry for your child having a disability, and having issues myself please dont take this the wrong way.

    but aswell as child allowance and disability. income support as you obviously cant work, and carer's allowance. i would not consider yourself to be at the poverty line. your child receives free medical aids, medications as is.

    try not to use the sympathy vote too often to get what you want, it makes the rest of us barely surviving on the poverty line look bad.

    The OP didn't mention being on the poverty line or play the sympathy vote. They merely stated that their washing machine needs replacing and they asked for help with this. Your post makes little sense as it does not relate to the OP.

    Hopefully the OP has now sort4ed out a new machine, as thety posted over a month ago.

    try Kidz Foundation - they cover stuff like that and you can apply on their website.

    As a new user I cant post a link, but take the spaces out of this.
