Mr G suffers from mixed personality disorder. To compound this he feels isolated as he recently lost two close members of his family and broke up with his girlfriend. He is signed off by his GP as not fit for work at the moment and is currently homeless. His only source of income is the basic level of Universal Credit but this is reduced by nearly 35% deductions due to his debts. A Debt Relief Order would reduce these deductions substantially and help him pay for just his basic needs.
B has just set up her own beauty shop in the town after studying and gaining qualifications whilst working full time in a small shop. Having her own business has always been her dream and this is gradually coming true, however she needs support to purchase a sign for her premises in order to advertise. Due to just starting up the business, she is struggling to find the funds to pay for this. Please help this young lady with the cost towards a sign and give her the best start with her new venture.
J has recently come out of prison, and he is determined to get life back together again for his wife and 2 kids. They've been really up against it with water, electric and gas bills etc whilst he wasn't around but they're now being really careful with their budgeting. He tells me he wants to pay for his own food rather than relying on foodbank, and when he gets some money he wants to buy a bible for his wife, as they've started going to church as a family.
G has recently lost his job. He came into this country on a spousal visa so is not entitled to any benefits or other public funds. He has been trying really hard to get another job but his money has run out and he does not have any money left to travel to interviews or look for work outside of the city. Any help you could give him to enable him to get a job would be much appreciated.

This family have fled a situation elsewhere in the country and are in need of money for their rent to pay for temporary accommodation. They will be housed by the council in a couple of weeks so this money, added to what has already been given, will pay for their rent this week.
This young single mum is in need of financial help. Her car is due an MOT in 2 weeks, but she doesn't have enough to cover the cost. She needs the car for her community care work but due to irregular hours & low income, she can't make ends meet. She is seeking help from Christians Against Poverty. She has had a very tough upbringing, an abusive ex-partner & is trying to make her own way. She's not closed to God, is open to prayer & idea of church, but due to her past, it's not easy- Acts 435 would be a great testimony of love.
S is a 26 year old single mother of three who feels that life is is conspiring to crush her. Unable to cope, one of her children is living with her father, another of her children is the subject of an acrimonious custody battle between her and an ex partner. As her Debt Adviser I feel that a Debt Relief Order would give her the opportunity to make a fresh start and relieve her of some of the stress she is experiencing. Can you help?
D is a young man who has managed to turn his life around after prison and taking drugs as he wasn't coping with society. He is now working to get himself training to start his life again and be a good role model to his children. He needs photo ID to start the process. He is very motivated and engaged. He is one of the many who have undiagnosed ADHD so fell through the cracks and didn't engage at school. He is ready for a fresh start.
Miss D has recently moved into a new home with her 8 year old son. She has done a fantastic job and has managed to source lots of second hand items. The only thing she has been unable to get is a washing machine. She is currently washing her and her son clothes by hand including his school uniform. There is no launderette near by. She is on Universal credit and would be unable to buy brand new washing machine without help.
DB has been an entrenched rough sleeper for many years and has health and mental health problems. The good news is that we have helped him to finally get his own flat. The flat is completely unfurnished and DB has no bed. He'd appreciate donations to buy him a bed as well as bedding to put on the bed.
GS has his own council flat but has struggled to manage the rent due to previous debts. He's on benefits but now working hard to get into employment and manage money well. He's not been able to access any funding or help from the council due to his debt, but the flat he's living in hasn't been painted since building works have been done, and is in a poor state. Your donation towards paint and rollers would help GS make his house a home and take the pressure off.
Miss O has been sofa surfing and staying with friends, but has just moved in to a unfurnished flat. She does work but is on a zero hours contact and there has been a quiet period recently, so she is struggling to buy everything she needs for her flat. This request is to appeal for £120 to purchase a reconditioned fridge freezer on her behalf.
R and his partner came to us for money advice. They'd got into debt following family illness, moving from their family home and change of benefits. R cares for his partner who has mental health issues and looks after their 4 children. He currently can't work but hopes to in the future to set a good example to his growing children. The family have tried to keep on top of their debts but have borrowed money to pay debts and the cycle just keeps on going. Getting a Debt Relied Order would help them move on.
Miss J has recently moved into her first property and she would like to make it more homely. Decorating the house will allow her to make it her own and will help her to have a fresh start. She suffers severely with mental health issues and decorating her home will allow Miss J to concentrate on the property rather than her health issues. Her first Universal Credit payment has gone on buying white goods so she can cook and clean her clothes rather than relying on family members, so she would be very grateful for some help to buy the items she needs for decorating.
F lives with her partner and two children, aged 7 and 16, in rented accommodation and they claim Universal Credit. F's partner is unable to work as he is recovering from cancer treatment and their low income has led to their debts becoming unmanageable. F and her partner are working with our 'Better Off Finance' project which teaches budgeting/financial capability and they have identified a Debt Relief Order as being the best option for dealing with their debts, to give them a fresh start.
We are currently supporting a young male who, in the grips of addiction, has lost all his possessions and self worth. He has been through detox and spent six months in rehabilitation and has been drug free for several months now. He is attending groups and learning to live his life substance free. He is in desperate need of clothes that fit him as he came to us with only the clothes he stood up in. Any donation, however small, would further help this gentleman regain his dignity and self worth.
This young person is ready to move on following a successful period in our supported housing project. She has had a baby boy and is managing well but unfortunately had some arrears from some time spent in a hostel which is stopping her from accessing social housing. We feel this would be the best route for her due to being safe, secure and affordable.
This young person has care leaver status and very little support around her. With suspected learning difficulties we are looking for some additional funds to try and get her the rest of her home-ware items to enable her to live independently in our supported housing property.
A. is unable to work due to mental health issues but has worked hard to bring up her two children, one of whom also has a mental health issue. She is not good with money and hasn’t claimed the benefits she was entitled to. She took out high cost loans to meet household and school uniform costs. Our Debt Advice centre has been helping her and we are recommending she applies for a debt relief order. She has no available funds for the fee so she would be extremely grateful for any help to pay this.
R is a working single mum with a 3 year old daughter. Her daughter's father was abusive when they were together and was recently arrested for threatening R with a knife.

She has been offered a flat and is keen to try and make a go of living independently but she is struggling to furnish the flat.

JW is 34 years old and he has been homeless most of his adult life. He has now been given a tenancy but he has no benefits in place yet and it will be 5 weeks before his Universal Credit claim is complete. He has moved in and has been given a bed and a chair, but he has no cooker. Can you help him to buy a small electric oven and hob, so he can warm food? At the moment he is having to buy takeaways to have a hot meal and it's costing him too much, having his own cooker would be ideal.
This homeless young man was working for Jeremy Kyle on research, and as we know it was shut down so he lost his job and home overnight and is now in a homeless hostel. He is suffering with bad anxiety and not coping well with the situation, please can we help with a gym pass to help his mental health?
This middle aged man just moved into permanent accommodation from a Homeless hostel and is in need of a cooker. This would really help him to cooker cheaper and healthier meals rather than living off microwave and take aways.
N is working with Christians Against Poverty and is working towards bankruptcy. He's been living on a low level of Universal Credit, with many deductions so some weeks he can hardly afford to put money on his electric meter. Happily he has just secured some work cleaning, but he won't get paid for over a week, and has to pay to travel to the job. We're looking for help with electric top up money for his flat, and also the train fare for getting to work. Many thanks.
Our client had to be moved from his property after abuse. His furniture, bed settee and mattress was put in storage for some months and when he got it back it was dirty. He has had a quote to get it cleaned but does not have the money to do so, with other important bills that have to be accounted for.
A, 32, recently got out of prison and has been relocated to an area far away from his family and his support from us, Junction 42. Please help us raise this money for a week's metro pass which allows him to daily engage with us, his church and a local charity where he is hoping to start a traineeship in catering. He has never worked but is highly motivated to stay out of prison and move forward with his life.
The applicant is a lone parent seeking asylum in the United Kingdom. She is fleeing persecution due to her being a Christian and has been an integral part of the Church Community. On a recent visit to the border agency she was told she would be deported even though her 11 year old son has lived in the country for the past 7 years. This application is to pay for a train ticket to London and overnight accommodation so that she can meet her solicitor in person to help resolve the situation.
C came in today in a terrible state with the small income she is in and v anxious that if she gets the same deductions from her universal credit next Friday then she won't survive next month. She is very vulnerable, has several support workers and has just fled domestic violence from another city. We desperately want to get this debt relief order through for her to clear her debt and deductions from benefit and then we can help her put her life back together. Can you help? Thank you so much!

The last year has been considerably difficult for her but she is an amazingly strong woman, moving forward with her life to ensure that she is a positive role model for her child.
K and her two daughters, W and A have been attending church for over 3 years now. K has a background of addiction and after recent struggles in this area was supported to become debt free through the work of CAP. However, this entailed going through a bankruptcy process, meaning she has very little available money. The church will be contributing money for K but won't have sufficient funds for K's daughters. We would love to ask for funds so that W could attend this holiday.
Mr J was admitted to hospital following an overdose in March 2018, he was then discharged in September 2018 and has lived in a hostel since then. Mr J suffers from mental health issues and also has a back injury. This is Mr J's first property and a fridge would help him keep his food cool and fresh. Eating healthy food would also help his mental health. Mr J is currently receiving help getting his Universal Credit correct and hence cannot afford a fridge himself.
W, 39, needs his provisional license in order to help support him into employment. He is due to start work in a month working on a building site, but is hoping to pass his driving test, so that he can drive himself and access much more employment opportunities - whilst also driving his 6 kids to experiences around the North East. W has been working with Junction 42 for a few months to get back into employment. Please support him in overcoming this barrier to employment!
