J is a working mother with four young children. She has recently separated from her husband and is struggling with her finances. She is struggling to pay her nursery fees for her youngest child and is at risk of getting into further debt. She has managed to borrow some money but it is not enough to pay all of the fees.

E has been furloughed for the past year and has been surviving using her credit card. She has recently been diagnosed with an incurable auto immune illness and is now classified as disabled.

E has shared that she is constantly worried about her debts and this is affecting her mental health. Please could we help alleviate this worry?
This young person is a looked after child and has very minimal support from friends or family. They have fallen behind on their gas and electric payments. This donation would help them get on top of their bills and massively improve their confidence whilst moving forward with their new budgeting plan.
Our Christians Against Poverty client has been working with us to reduce her debts, but our advice is that she now applies for a Debt Relief Order. She doesn't have the available money to pay this, so we are seeking different ways of funding it. Any help you could give would be really appreciated.

A Debt Relief Order would clear her debts allowing them a fresh start with their finances but they need to find £90 for the fee.

This man had just started a job as a supermarket delivery driver when he had to self isolate as he came in contact with a Covid case. He only received £16.00 in wages, lost his job and is now on Universal Credit. Because of the delay in payment he has had to use our food bank. He has kept up with his rent but is in debt with his gas and electricity supplier. The worry of these arrears are causing a lot of anxiety. Please can you help him clear this debt?
A divorced mum with two school age children has been visiting the foodbank for help with food. She has not received maintenance from her ex in support of the children for well over 3 or 4 years and is surviving on old style Tax Credits and Housing Benefits. Her washing machine has now broken down and she would be grateful for some help towards getting a new machine. Her mental health is not good at present due to the strain of coping on her own.
This lady has suffered poor mental health and was off work for 12 weeks. This put her back financially. Her daughter has also just left home and her benefits are changing. She now works locally and also volunteers by taking an elderly lady out on trips. She is also studying for an NVQ 2 in social care. She needs her car for work and volunteering, and with trying to catch up on council tax debt and payment of a DRO, cannot make ends meet. Paying her car tax would really help matters.
L is currently fleeing an abusive relationship. She has been left with debts by her ex-partner as well as her own, and her ex partner is not paying maintenance. She is getting help with her debts but they are currently still being deducted heavily from her benefits. Despite everything she has going on she is doing lots of voluntary work and trying to help others. It is her son's birthday next week and she cannot afford to buy him anything- please can we help?
Ms M is 24, studying to be a social worker and trying to help and support her sister who has a child and struggles with an addiction. We are helping them both through the foodbank but are concerned that Ms M will be completely overwhelmed and put back or give up her degree in social work. Any help towards her rent would be greatly appreciated. After some support from Saint Vincent de Paul there will be just £150 remaining. Thank you.

They have been making steady progress but Dad has recently lost his job and Mum's low income only just covers their living costs.

Your kindness is so appreciated.

This lady is currently threatened with eviction after a recent change in her circumstances. She works part-time but due to debts incurred during a previous relationship, she is struggling due to various deductions which leave her with little money to meet her rent and other essential costs.
