Liz’s Story

Caring responsibilities left Liz and her family short on income, so GroceryAid helped with a crisis grant and emotional support.


Living with her husband and young family, Liz has worked in a variety of food manufacturing roles. She recently went on to maternity leave and gave birth to a baby boy. Sadly, he was born with Spina Bifida which caused a significant amount of stress for both parents. Liz’s husband couldn’t work due to caring responsibilities meaning the family has no income other than statutory sick pay. GroceryAid awarded a crisis grant to help alleviate the financial and emotional drain on the family.
