This family has had a lot of problems over the past few months. The single mother has a physical disability and has recently spent 5 months in hospital away from her three children. The family have been moved to an adapted property and the children need beds. We are requesting support for one child's bed please.
This client suffers from paranoid schizophrenia and has left-sided weakness following a past stroke. She moved into residential care due to safeguarding issues when groups of men were visiting her home and there were reports of sexual exploitation. Whilst in care she engaged with support workers and is now regularly seen by a Community Psychiatric Nurse. She has now been rehoused to an adapted bungalow and is unable to purchase essential items due to being in receipt of disability benefits.
Our client is an asylum seeker who knows very little English and is trying to learn conversational language skills to develop his integration into the community and ease his feelings of isolation. He is living off very limited weekly benefits, which aren’t enough to afford a regular and reliable internet connection, and all his English classes are online. Donations towards purchasing an internet connection would be so appreciated.
A has recently moved from Ireland to temporary accommodation with her four children. She is in the process of applying for Universal Credit, but awaiting a letter of confirmation that she is living in temporary accommodation before it can be processed. One of her children is still at secondary school and one is at college. The child at secondary school needs new school uniform, and mum needs help with bus fares for both of the children. We are looking for your kind generosity to help A and her family.
Z is currently unemployed and in receipt of benefits. She is looking for work but has been out of work for 6 years and is nearing retirement age. Financially she can manage on her benefits but needs help to buy larger items. Her request is to purchase an under counter freezer for her one bedroom council flat.
J kept on top of all bills until several years ago when she had a breakdown. She struggled on, using credit to try and hide the problems from her husband, but eventually everything came to light. He is now sorting out the finances going forward but she has several debts which they cannot afford to repay which is adding to her anxiety and stress. A Debt Relief Order would clear her debts allowing them a fresh start with their finances but they need to find £90 for the fee.
Our charity supports an asylum seeker, 54, struggling with mobility following a stroke and now living in a care home. He enjoys attending our charity’s weekly art sessions, befriending activities and English classes, as he has no other opportunities to meet people, calling them “a lifeline”. He cannot use public transport and needs specialist taxis with extra assistance which cost £30 a week. £150 would enable him to attend these “lifeline" sessions worry free for five weeks. Thank you.
D is working with Christians Against Poverty after he found himself in debt following a bad back injury that prevented him from working. He is currently sleeping in a van with no disposable income and debts preventing him from making any progress in finding a new place to live. A Debt Relief Order would be a lifeline for him and help begin the process of making a fresh start. Many thanks in anticipation.
Following a car crash the applicant has significant mobility issues. He also has a bad wound on his back that causes much pain. A move from a first floor flat to the ground floor has been secured but there is limited furniture and his fridge freezer is broken. Living on Universal Credit he can only just cover his living costs. A new fridge freezer will allow him to store fresh food and not have to shop every day. This would make a huge difference to his quality of life.
We are currently supporting a single mum who is doing her best parenting alone, while facing some personal struggles along the way.

This client was abused by his ex-partner. They split up and he was awarded full custody of their son. Their previous living conditions were very turbulent and Dad is keen to bring up his son in a stable home. He has been awarded a flat and he has worked hard to make the place habitable. He is in receipt of Universal Credit and does not have any savings. He would be so grateful for help buying a washing machine.
D is an elderly lady with learning difficulties. She is in debt and has taken out a number of loans in the past to purchase items and has struggled paying these off, which has left her in financial difficulty. She lives alone and does not have any means to prepare hot food for herself. She would really appreciate your donations that would enable her to buy a cooker. Thank you.
N has been homeless for a few years and has recently secured a tenancy at a retirement lodge. N had a traumatic childhood, resulting in PTSD, which has affected him in his ability to navigate society. Unsuitable sleeping arrangements whilst homeless have resulted in serious back problems and N would benefit from an orthopaedic mattress, allowing him to finally have a good night's rest. Please help if you are able.
K reached out for support from Christians Against Poverty and is going through a debt relief order. She lives alone after her long-term partner passed away suddenly last year. She has struggled with her income and managing to keep up with the bills since his passing. She is hopeful for a fresh start and to get on top of her budgeting with CAP's help and with her support worker who is making a big impact on her confidence and ability to leave the house. Your help would be gratefully appreciated.
We are seeking help towards a Debt Relief Order fee for a client who has got herself into quite a mess. She has really suffered with her mental health because of the debt that has mounted up over several years. It has become such a problem that she now can't afford to feed and cloth her children once all her bills are paid. Every time she tried to fix it, it just made it worse so a Debt Relief Order would finally resolve the problem and give her the fresh start that she needs. Thanks for any help you can offer.
Our client is a single mum with 4 children. Her partner left her with debts including huge rent arrears that she had no knowledge of as he used to manage their money. The only way to get her and the children free from debt is a debt relief order so we are looking for help towards the fee as she has no spare money at all. It would be such a blessing if you could help her and the children with a fresh start.
Our client has incurred debt through the turbulence of a zero hours contract during a pandemic. She's now struggling to pay her bills and debts whilst doing her best to find a job. Clearing her debts by means of a debt relief order would improve her situation significantly but she needs the £90 fee to be donated as she doesn’t have any spare money at all. Many thanks for any help you can offer.
