K is suffering with mental health issues and anxiety. She has experienced a relationship breakdown and is currently sofa surfing. She is unable to work due to her mental health and this is being exacerbated by her debts. She would like to apply for a Debt Relief Order to give her a fresh start. Hopefully she can then move into her own flat with a clean slate and find employment. This will enable her to move onto a positive future.
K is a single mother of 4 children aged 2 to 20 and has been working with Christians Against Poverty (CAP) to clear historic debts largely resulting from the break up of her relationship with youngest child's father. She has been living on benefits but volunteering with various charities to help others and is trying really hard to sort her life out. She has now been offered a job in a care home which fits with her duties as a mother and will improve her financial situation, but has to buy her own work clothes
