He is now in his own place, his benefits are being assessed and he is able to eat properly. He has a volunteer support worker to support his independence but he needs the fee for a Debt Relief Order for a fresh start.

£150 needed for a Debt Relief Order and fuel

Our client has mental health issues and is currently facing eviction due to rent arrears which have resulted from the spare room subsidy. A Debt Relief Order would stop the eviction and the housing association has said they will try and get him into a 1 bedroom property which would help stop arrears arising again. He is not putting any gas on at the moment and is boiling the kettle to get washed, therefore the help with fuel costs would be amazing.

£35 needed for a provisional driving licence fee

S has been released from prison and is working hard to rebuild his life, sorting out accommodation, employment and rebuilding relationships with his family. He was released without any ID, meaning he is unable to apply for accommodation, employment or a bank account. He needs to apply for a provisional licence, not only to act as his ID, but this also means that once he is in work, he will be able to start to learn to drive, which will help him to rebuild his life even more.
