BG is a refugee from Iran, and her husband and 3 children have just joined her in the UK. However, their benefits were stopped and they have no source of income until February 18th. BG is worried and scared about how she will be able to feed them, pay the rent that is due, and keep the house warm and powered. They have received food vouchers, and we are trying to access social services support as well, but any financial help would be a huge relief, and BG would be so grateful.
S is in a women's refuge as she has fled a violent arranged marriage. Sadly her ex-husband has all her paperwork including her passport etc, so she is struggling to get any benefits, she has no money and no personal belongings or clothes. Please could you help her with a donation, so that she can keep going until the replacement ID documents can be obtained? Thank you.
This couple became homeless due to a fire that spread to their property from next door. They managed to escape the incident, but the fire destroyed everything and left the property unfit to live in. They struggled to get a reference for another property. Their church supported them with temporary accommodation and provided evidence until council gave them accommodation. They got furniture from church members, but they need money to replace other lost items and clothing.
S was referred to Romero from Citizen Advice after speaking to one of their debt advisers. S had to leave work due to mental health problems and applied for Universal Credit but due to the 6 week assessment for benefit fell behind with utility bills and has now fallen into debt. The worry of this is adding to his anxiety and he is unable to sleep. To help him get back on track he needs to apply for £90 Debt Relief Order so he can rebuild his life and reduce his stress levels.
Very urgent request. E's benefits have been stopped because they calculated that she earned too much last month. She has also lost her job and so has no income at all for a month due to the harsh UC waiting period. She doesn't know how she will manage and be able to feed herself and pay her bills. Any help will be greatly appreciated.
L is a single mum and is currently on a benefits cap. She is in a lot of debt and is really struggling to pay for gas and electricity as well as feeding her 3 children aged 4, 7 and 16. She is getting help from a local foodbank and is seeking help from citizens advice to try and sort her debts as she has been visited by a bailiff. Any help given would be greatly appreciated.
