S is a polite, middle aged man who has fallen on hard times, with a loss of earnings and subsequent debt incurred. He has been advised that a Debt Relief Order (DRO) is the best way forward to have a fresh start financially. In addition, S is getting remarried, after a divorce a few years ago, and is wanting to be secure and settled. He is keen to get a new job and to make a new life for himself. He is unable to raise the money for DRO fees himself, and would be very grateful for your help.
H moved into his own property six months ago and has managed to get donations of furniture but does not have a TV yet. A TV would make a big difference to him as he does not like to go out the house much on an evening. Being unemployed makes it difficult to manage financially & he often relies on the foodbank.
We are requesting your help to pay for a debt relief order for K. She is living in severe hardship and finding her current situation very stressful, and her debt issues are making her mental health issues worse.
'R' is an unemployed single parent of four children who is struggling to pay his bills. He has rent arrears and is being threatened with eviction if he cannot pay his rent. He is making an appointment to seek advice from Christians Against Poverty to manage his debts; this request would enable him to pay his rent for one month and avoid eviction.
S has very poor mental health and, although she is often employed, she can't hold down a job. Two of her children no longer live with her, one having been adopted into another family, and there's another baby on the way. S hasn't had enough support and is now seriously in debt. Citizens Advice recommend a Debt Relief Order as the immediate way out and are trying to get some counselling to help S in the longer term. Help with the fee is urgent and would greatly ease S's stress level and give her some hope this Easter.

This Debt Relief Order will make a huge difference to C and her son. She has struggled emotionally since the death of her partner, finding every day living a challenge. Debts have mounted and she now finds it impossible to manage her living expenses and pay off her debts from her weekly payment.

When K’s partner was ill he had to give up work to look after his boys. This resulted in him getting into debt. He then split up with his partner and ended up homeless.

Any help for the fee for this would be greatly appreciated and would help K with his fresh start in life.
L has physical disabilities that mean she cannot drive and accessing public transport is difficult. She is therefore dependent on taxis for transport, which is extremely expensive and not affordable on her current budget.

This money would be used exclusively to attend the courses.
A family we have been supporting for nearly 2 years have recently suffered a bereavement of a close family friend. They are already struggling to repay debts on top of the normal monthly expenses, due to a low income. We would like to help them afford suitable clothes to go to the funeral and avoid them taking out a loan to cover the cost otherwise leaving them in more debts and struggling further each month. Many thanks.
T. moved to the UK with her son to be with her husband. Since then he has been physically, emotionally and financially abusive to her over past three years. T. left her husband with her son due to the abuse and is being supported by Social Services as she has no recourse to public funds. T. has no source of income other then the basic amounts Social Service give her. She needs to buy clothes for her son and kitchen utensils and bedding as she had to leave her home with virtually nothing.
Just £90.00 needed for a Debt Relief Order fee for a single man with debts. TW was working but as his contract was zero hours he fell behind with his utilities and also his credit card payments.Sadly the situation worsened when he lost his job. He now has arrears and Citizens Advice have suggested that he applies for a Debt Relief Order. This will cost £90.00 and sadly TW doesn't have enough money to pay the fee.
B had to give up his job due to health problems and then lost his home following the breakup of a relationship. The stress and anxiety caused him to neglect his finances, building up large debts. He is now keen to get his life back on track and is getting help in managing his money. He is moving into a flat which is mostly furnished but he needs a vacuum cleaner, iron/ ironing board and other household items which he is not able to afford. He would be really grateful for any help.

A is getting help from Christians Against Poverty to sort out his debts. Whilst we are dealing with the main ones he has a small amount of debt on his prepaid gas meter which means whenever he puts some money on it is used up by the debt almost straight away. This has caused him to just stop putting money on his meter and therefore not heating his flat. We would like to raise enough to cover the debt which is £34 and then put some credit on his meter to get him ahead.
R had his licence revoked several years ago and is now entitled to renew it, but it will cost £65. He works on building sites, but without a car he is limited to accept work in nearby towns where there is a reasonable bus service. Freedom to work farther afield would improve his work possibilities and enable him to manage his finances better.
C came to us for money advice. Last year she split with her partner who had got lots of debt in her name leaving her and their young child in massive debt.

Getting this help will mean the world to her and give her the chance to move on with her life.
V is desperately in need of help. She came to us for money advice as she's 'drowning' in debt. Her debts started when she became really poorly and had to change medication meaning she wasn't able to look after herself never mind her home.

Her mental health is suffering and she cannot see a way forward - by getting a debt relief order she can move forward. Thank you for any help offered.

This single mother of two children works as a cleaner in a school for which she receives a low wage topped up by tax credits. Her problems with debt began when she lived with her ex partner who was an alcoholic. He accrued debt in her name, failed to pay bills and could not keep a job. If she questioned him about this he would hit her. She finally left him but cannot repay the debt, which is causing her extreme anxiety. A debt relief order would help her start afresh but she cannot afford the fee.
The client is a 33 year old lone parent with children aged 5 and 11. She is working part-time but has a low income. She suffers from mental health issues and finds being in debt is adding to this. She was referred by the Safeguarding Officer at her child's school to try and turn her situation around and ease the pressure on the client and her family. She would greatly benefit from help to fund a Debt Relief Order to deal with her overall debts and have a fresh start for her and her children. Thank you
H has struggled for a long time with his mental health, having been misdiagnosed and put on the wrong medication for 20 years. He got into debt after taking days and weeks off work due to illness. He made 6 suicide attempts in this time, and on the last one his friends persuaded him to seek help. He is now working with Christians Against Poverty. He has a very tight budget with little money for food. A debt relief order would lift the burden of debt and be a huge help for H's mental health.
S is a single mother of 3 young children. She receives no financial help from the children's father. She is unable to work full-time due to the ill-health of one of her children.

If she has a fresh start the debt burden she has been carrying will lift and she can provide a positive home for her children.

T and her partner are struggling with debt that she was left with by her previous, abusive partner- they are both working and in rented social housing. They have just started working with Christians Against Poverty to put a debt plan in place. Now their washing machine has broken and they have no savings, so they are washing all clothes by hand now. These funds would help to buy a good second hand washing machine, and would be a great encouragement to them at the start of their debt plan.
D has just been transferred on to universal credit and is having to wait at least 5 weeks for her first payment, which is putting her into debt and is also making her very anxious. She lives with her son who has a disability and both of them need support. D is getting support from Citizens Advice Bureau and a local food bank, but would be grateful for your added support to pay for living essentials and bills while she awaits her first payment.
