N is a Mum who has £10k of debt and has struggled for many many years to pay these off. She works in a very low paid job and also cares for her partner. She is very stressed by her debts and cannot cope with the pressures of life so we are believing a Debt Relief Order will go a long way to bringing peace into her life and a work/life balance. We are working closely with her to seed her move forward in her life in a positive way.
R is a married man who has had debts for many many years. He also has a daughter and is struggling to cope with the pressures of life. He has £16,000 worth of debt.

This woman and her two young children had to flee the family home as they were victims of domestic violence from her ex-partner. She has nothing to furnish her new Housing Association tenancy with and is therefore having to start again. She has managed to source a cooker and a fridge but cannot afford flooring and kitchen utensils. A local charity will supply a settee but she is requesting help with rugs and smaller household goods. Any help would be much appreciated.
P is currently unable to work due to long term ill health and has been relying on food bank support.

Our client is homeless and is living in temporary B&B accommodation with his father and brother, all of whom are in receipt of Universal Credit. He has few items of clothing so is in need of some basic items of clothing and shoes which he cannot afford to buy. I am hoping that you may be able to help, so we can issue him with some Primark vouchers to enable him to purchase the items he needs.
The applicant was working until a number of serious health and anxiety issues arose. He spent a lot of time helping others, and unfortunately is in debt due to lending to friends, who ran up a large bill on his credit card. Christians Against Poverty (CAP) are working to clear his debt via bankruptcy, and he is also working with his local CAP job club trying to return to work. The bankruptcy would lift a huge weight and help him focus on rebuilding his life.

This 56 year old woman with two adult children was living in accommodation that was damp and due to be demolished so she had to move tenancy. She has been diagnosed with fibromyalgia, vasculitis and Reynaud's disease. She had little choice in where she moved and the property needs decorating throughout. A local charity will provide her with a fridge/freezer as hers is not working, but she would be really grateful for any help towards decorating materials.
This client and her children were being abused by her partner and, despite the fact that he has now moved out of the family home, they have all been left mentally traumatised.

Her ex-partner smashed all of the bedroom furniture in the children's room so there is nowhere to store their clothing. She has no means to able to purchase a new wardrobe so your help would be most appreciated.
We have recently met a single mum of 7 children who is determined to make positive steps in her life. Part of this is her want and willingness to speak to a counselling service about her past and how it has affected her self confidence. A donation of £80 will go towards the costs of this service and will enable mum to have 12 sessions with a professional.
B suffers from mental illness. She is living on benefits but has been struggling and has got herself into debt. Her fridge/freezer has just stopped working and she has no funds to replace it. Please help in any way that you can. Thank you.
