X is in debt and would struggle to get more credit, and that wouldn't be good for her. She lost her job in care just before the pandemic and now has to home school a 10 year old and look after her 3 year old. The pandemic has meant it is really hard to find work. X is working with a support worker from the council and is now being supported by Pathways and Christians Against Poverty at Holy Trinity Church. The freezer would really help X with budgeting and food for her little ones.
G lost her job last October as she was in temporary work. Her husband worked in the same place and also lost his job because COVID-19 meant that demand had significantly reduced. She expected to get another job fairly quickly so didn’t claim Universal Credit but the new job didn’t materialise and they are both struggling to find anything in the very challenging labour market. They have a great deal of debt and their home is at risk. A Debt Relief Order would solve all this but they can't afford the fee. Please could you help?
D lost his job last October as he was in temporary work. His wife worked in the same place and also lost her job because COVID-19 meant that demand had significantly reduced. He expected to get another job soon so didn’t claim Universal Credit but the new job didn’t materialise. They have a great deal of debt and their home at risk. A Debt Relief Order would solve all this but they can't afford the fee. Please could you help?
G has been relocated to Derby from London and housed by Action Housing in a studio flat with just a kettle in the entire flat. He is on benefits so having to furnish a new flat is very difficult. We have approached local providers for help with furniture and furnishings and have managed to get many items for him but cannot source a cooker and he has no money to buy one. Please could you help?
K has had to stop work due to very poor health and is a single mum of three children. Her cooker has completely broken so she is having family members cooking meals for her and the children a couple of times a week and dropping them on her doorstep. Otherwise, they are surviving on sandwiches and snacks. Any help you could offer to get a new cooker would be so gratefully received.
We are looking for help to pay our client's Debt Relief Order fee. R has been trying to get herself out of debt for some time having split from her partner who wasn't paying any of their bills - unbeknown to her. She has tried really hard and can keep up with her bills now but the debt is causing so much stress and uncertainty. She is a single mum with 2 children at home and would really appreciate the help.
A is a single mum of 3 children. She was working and at the start of Covid-19 was initially furloughed but now has been laid off. She has also become depressed and is being helped by her GP. Her partner can no longer help out financially for the children as he has also been laid off so money is very tight. She is really struggling to get any clothes dry and has no tumble dryer. Drying everything on the radiator is causing damp so we would really appreciate help in purchasing her a small tumble dryer. Thank you.
