Sam is a European worker with only basic English. He has difficulty with official forms, with the result that he has to pay back some housing benefit.. He has also been exploited by his employer on a zero-hours contract. Sam has debts which he can't clear and can't afford to feed his wife and children properly. He is now receiving advice from the Citizens Advice Bureau, and a Debt Relief Order is an essential first step to make ends meet. He would be very grateful for help with the fee.
H was referred initially through Domestic Violence team, she is now working with CAB worker to get permanently rehoused and reduce debts. This money will help reduce her council rent arrears to a level that will allow her to be put back on the council housing list.
C is being supported by our local CAB debt advice worker. He has multiple debts and requires funds to apply for a debt relief order.
G already has arrears of his fuel pre payment meter of £40, and is working with our local CAB worker on a number of other issues. This payment will allow him to clear this fuel debt and "get ahead" of himself for a while.
A lost his step son to a mistaken identity murder. This has placed extreme stress on the whole family.The trial took 3 years and now the family are trying to build their lives again. The pressure led his finances and those of his wife to spiral out of control. He is unable to work due to ill health. A DRO would give him a 'light at the end of a tunnel'.
single mother going through very stressful situation after her young son made a disclosure regarding abuse from his dad. She has to apply through court - she is not eligible for legal aid because of a part time job, and can't afford a solicitor. She is raising her sons alone following relationship difficulties. The court can withdraw contact or arrange supervised visits and this help towards the costs would mean so much as she tries to protect her family from abuse and keep out of debt.
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.
