This lady has recently moved back to the area after many years away. She is struggling to make new friends and feels very isolated. I got to know her through a lunch club that the foodbank runs. Her husband works and she is the carer for their 2 very young children. The washing machine broke the same week as the car needed very expensive repairs and there is just no money left. She is desperate for a washing machine, new or second hand, as she is potty training her eldest.
This single mum has 4 children under 10, including a 2 month old baby. She is struggling financially but needs a pram for the baby and money won’t stretch to this, although she could put some money towards it. This would help them get out more easily as a family. Please could you help this family and alleviate added pressure?
This young mum has recently broken up with a partner who was abusive both financially and emotionally- the man has now left the young woman in rent arrears. She has spoken to the council and she cannot move from her current property until the rent arrears are paid. She has 2 small children and wishes to start afresh with her children. This would help her a lot, begin a new chapter and a fresh start in her life.
C is a single parent of 2 children and has been in an abusive relationship. She is trying to rebuild her life and looking at doing a Debt Relief Order (DRO) to clear her debts. She works part time as well. Please help her with the fees of £90 so we can progress the DRO? She has an agreement with bailiffs coming round at present, so the DRO will deal with these and release money to go to basic expenditure items.
J is a single gentleman on Universal Credit. He has £3500 debt and no way of clearing this alone, only to go through a Debt Relief Order (DRO). He is very depressed and we saw him smile for the first time this week when we were able to give him hope to clear his debts! Please can you help by giving the £90 he needs to go forward with the DRO?
This lady is a single parent, who of necessity can only work part time. She is in discussions with Christians Against Poverty with a view to help manage her debts. She is on a limited income and struggling with debt, so it is difficult to meet any one off expenses. Her vacuum cleaner has broken down and is irreparable. We shall be grateful for any support that can be given to enable her to obtain a new vacuum.
This lady and her partner have 6 children. Her partner has a lung disorder and cannot work. They have been through an initial discussion with our local Christians Against Poverty centre regarding finances. They do not have a telephone and find it difficult to make contact with anyone outside their immediate vicinity. It would make their lives much better if they could each obtain a cheap mobile phone on a pay as you go basis. We would welcome any support.
This gentleman recently left rehab and is in recovery from addiction. He has recently moved into accommodation, he has been transferred to Universal Credit and does not get paid for 4 weeks. He is currently in emergency on his electric. When this runs out this will leave him without heating or a cooker as all his appliances run on electric. Your support would help him maintain his independence and heating and continue to able to cook for himself.
K has just got a one bedroom place. She works and has £14k of debt and needs to go through a Debt Relief Order. She is very keen to deal with her debts and move forward with her life. All her children live with their Father and she has been through a lot to get to this point. Thank you.
This 36 year old man suffers from severe anxiety and depression which was triggered by the breakdown of a long term relationship. This came at a time when he lost his job and he has been deemed unfit for work ever since. He is reliant upon universal credit and has been unable to maintain his debt repayments which is exacerbating his anxiety. A Debt Relief Order has been recommended by his money adviser but he cannot afford the fee. Your help would give this man an opportunity for a fresh start.
C is a single parent who works nights which she finds hard. She has £11,000 worth of debt so needs to go through a Debt Relief Order (DRO). She has a large sense of shame and sees no light at the end of the tunnel. We have been able to tell her that she has no need for guilt or shame, she is a hard working woman who life has thrown some hard blows to but there is a light at the end of the tunnel with a DRO. Please could you help by donating the fees for this fr her?
G has had a huge alcohol problem for at least the last 10 years. Many services have tried to help him over the years and he is now at a place where he wants help. We are helping him deal with his debts again and a Debt Relief Order would free him from £10,000 worth of debt. He will then just be left with a court fine to pay. He broke down crying at the thought we would help him again. This is a testimony of God at work in this man's life and we're excited to be able to help him again.
