We are in the process of supporting J for a bankruptcy. He has severe mental health issues, which makes it very difficult for him to manage his affairs. Due to his mental struggles, he has accumulated a substantial amount of debts. A bankruptcy would give him a fresh start and help also his mental health significantly.
I first met A at the food bank. He is full of anger, hurt and not able to talk to anyone. We started by saying hello and gradually he let his guards down. We discovered his challenges. So we took upon ourself to contact his housing officer, sorting out his food and give him some work on a voluntary basis. Recently he was been moved - thank God to a better location and accommodation. At present there is no flooring and he is sleeping on duvets. We want to raise money to put floor down for him.
BA is a community volunteer in spite of his many medical challenges. He was relocated to a floor level bedsit in a private housing estate with nothing. He had to use all of his Employment Support Allowance to put in 2nd hand basic needs. He now needs money for healthy food, transport, bedding, window/door blinds until he gets his monthly allowance and offset some bills.
V is a lone parent of three sons and has severe health issues. She lost her job when she started cancer treatment some years ago. Due to her poor health, she was unable to apply for certain benefits and ended up with significant debts. The client's only income is from benefits and is not in a position to pay back her debts. It would be a great relief for her if we could support her to get a Debt Relief Order, so that her debts can be written off and give her a fresh start.
Jenny is a single lady who suffers from depression and anxiety. She has two jobs but both are zero hours contracts so her monthly income is very variable. As her Universal Credit is paid a month in arrears, this means she has some months with almost no income. She has made great progress with our team and is living within her means but cannot afford her debt repayments. It would be a great relief for this client if we could support her to get a Debt Relief Order to give her a fresh start.
