£90 needed for Debt Relief Order fee

L is a young single Mum with a child aged 3. She has suffered from domestic violence in the past and this has left her with long term anxiety and insomnia. She is very independent and anxious to avoid reliance on benefits. She works part time but on a low wage and is getting into debt. She has been advised that a Debt Relief Order is her best option. This will help to stabilise her finances and hopefully improve her health and wellbeing. Help towards paying the fee would be really appreciated.
