Gwen is working poor, has a disposable income of £14.07 per week. Until recently she used to be given 1 hour overtime a week, this gave her enough money to take up belly dancing. It has helped her to build relationships, not be so isolated (she lives alone) have an outside interest, and also keep fitter. Sadly due to the loss of the overtime she will have to stop her one leisure activity. Can you help her to pay for classes until Christmas at which time she has been told she will get overtime again.
I was removed from ESA and had to make a fresh claim for job seekers allowance and the break in benefits put me in arrears with my rent. I then found employment (Zero hours contract) and had to change benefit again when I had no work and completed a new application for universal credit. Unfortunately I have to wait 6 to 8 weeks before this benefit will be put into pay and have not managed to source any further employment.
This gentleman was moved out of rental accommodation to provide for the landlord's family. He had to lose the furniture he had and slept on a friend's bench in a garden shed for six weeks. He has found other rented accommodation but has no furniture and is sleeping in a donated chair. He is waiting for his benefit money to be sorted and has no food either. Obviously this is leading him into depression and a feeling of hopelessness. Please can you help to provide a single bed for him? Thankyou

The applicant has always worked but when her children left home she was faced with extra expense and also physical illness. She became anxious and went further into debt finding that she was paying out more than she was earning. She finally sought professional advice and this was to apply for a Debt Relief order to get her finances in order. However she needs the fee to initiate this so that she can go ahead.
Children's Services are working with this lady and her three children who have returned to this country from Spain in order to move on from difficult circumstances. They came to SW Durham because housing was more affordable. She therefore has no family nearby and her benefits are not yet fully in place. Her children have places in the local secondary school but they need uniforms and shoes. Please can you help them have this fresh start?
