D came to us for help with his debts which escalated following termination in employment then depression and anxiety. He's been too ill to leave his home and claim benefit but has now taken steps to rectify this. He's been surviving for just under a month on no income and is anxious that he cannot pay anything towards his rent. His benefits will take a few weeks to come through so we really hope you can help his immediate need. Thank you!
DC has OCD and anxiety and due to her condition she missed and appointment at the job center and has now been sanctioned. Her washing machine has broken and the nearest launderette is a few miles away, so she is struggling to take her washing there. Her OCD condition means that washing her clothes regularly is really important, now that she has no washing machine her anxiety has become worse. Please consider helping her to buy a reconditioned washer. Thank you
F is on Universal Credit but has been sanctioned. He missed appointment because he broke his hand, which looked very swollen & painful, and was sanctioned for not sending in his sick note even though he had let them know. He has covered his rent & receiving help with food from the food bank but has no money for his energy bills.
A mother who has Type 1 diabetes, living with her adult son who has mental ill health, is struggling with debts following a clawback of their benefits. She has very little cash left after the deduction for recovery of the alleged overpayment has been made. Even with running up debts, she can't afford to eat properly and so has frequent diabetic hypos. Citizens Advice are trying to help and recommend a Debt Relief Order as an essential first step. Help with the fee would be greatly appreciated.
R is due to have a baby in the next few weeks but is suffering from anxiety & depression that is primarily being caused because she has debts that she can't pay. R would love a financial fresh start, so she can concentrate on her new baby. A Debt Relief Order would allow this to happen.
