Aidan has been in care since he was 12 years old. He now has a council flat of his own, but he explained to me that he has never been taught how to budget. He has moved onto Universal Credit, but due to the transition of benefits & understanding the system, he has built up some debts. He is now working with Christians Against Poverty & their advice is that his budget is so tight, that his only way forward is a Debt Relief Order. A donation to cover the fee would be gratefully received.
Bob is prone to migraines and gets support from the Migraine Trust. He was on Job Seekers Allowance but couldn't get to interviews because of the migraines and was sanctioned and his allowance cut. Bob now has a job he hopes to keep. Meanwhile, due to the sanction, Bob built up debts. The Citizens Advice Bureau advises a Debt Relief Order as the only option. If he can hold down his new job, and without the worry of debts, Bob should be able to manage better.
