R is a father of two who suffers from various mental health issues. He recently had to give up work as he was no longer able to cope in that environment. He has got into debt in several areas and now is struggling to make repayments and keep on top of day-to-day finances. He qualifies for a Debt Relief Order. This would clear his debts and free up enough money to cover his family's living costs without getting into further debt. This would be a fresh start but he needs the £90 fee to do this.
This 58 year old man was homeless for a long period before obtaining a council tenancy. He has been diagnosed with depression and anxiety and is receiving treatment. He has little to furnish his home with and spends a lot of his time walking the city streets because the property is so inhospitable. A local charity has agreed to provide him with a new single bed and he has seen a sofa for £120. Any help with this would allow him to live in a more comfortable environment.
