Mrs M is one of two asylum seekers, who because of financial difficulties currently has her children in the care of a member of our Parish. Due to the nature of NASS support payments, she has found herself unable to contribute to the cost of this. We are looking for ways to help her in this and help would be greatly appreciated.
N&L are a lovely couple working with Christians Against Poverty. They used to run their own business which became successful, but as it grew L was suffering from increased ill health and was not able to keep up with the work. He borrowed more money to keep the business going but it eventually failed. He has now been diagnosed with a degenerative neurological condition and N has become his carer. A donation to the couple's insolvency fees would help relieve the burden of debt. 2nd request.

Lucy turned to Christians Against Poverty for help and is now looking to go through a debt relief order. Your donation to this will help break the cycle of stress and debt.
