Applicant has difficulty as her DLA has stopped and she has been turned down for the replacement PIP. She has spoken with her named CPN and the Welfare Support Office at the Housing Association. It will take several weeks to sort out; meantime she is £80 in arrears with rent and has £20 utility arrears also. She has a small job cleaning at the local Catholic Church; she would like other work, this is difficult due to mental illness including schizophrenia, depression, panic attacks/anxiety.
This lady is a single mum of two, one of which is a baby who was born prematurely. She is awaiting maternity allowance and is struggling to keep up with her bills so this request is for some money to put on her electric key card to help her manage in the meantime.
Richard had his benefits stopped recently. He has no income at present. He is making a fresh start after overcoming an alcohol addiction. He no longer drinks. A donation from Acts 435 would help him to buy food and pay bills while waiting for his benefit to be restored. Thank you.
D, a single mother with two teenage sons, both with learning difficulties, was made homeless because of rent arrears and offered temporary accommodation, but will have to move again soon. Her benefits are in confusion as her younger son refused to go to school so his benefits were stopped. Although he has now gone back to school, D has benefit arrears owing her so she is struggling with the cost of the move and other expenses. Her current benefits barely cover the familly's food and heating.
