We are supporting this person to apply for Personal Independence Payment. He is currently in receipt of Universal Credit. This has deductions at source to pay council tax and rent arrears which were incurred due to benefit delays following the loss of the gentleman's job due to ill health. After deductions, he struggles to meet his needs on the money left available to him. The sum requested would help reduce the debt owing, reducing the person's stress which impacts on his health. Thank you.
N has just come out of a very violent marriage, in which the ex-partner before he left smashed all the furniture in every room of the house and ruined the carpets by bodily means, meaning they had to be thrown away on health grounds. She then found out that in the damage he had broken the radiator which caused a slow leak and that then damaged the flooring boards which the council have replaced, but she has no carpet in the bedroom used by her son. She is slowly rebuilding their lives. Can you help her to get some more carpet?
This lady has had a hugely difficult few months. She had to be rehoused following a period of serious mental health problems which resulted in significant debts and benefit delays. She is now working with the local church's debt advice team and receiving appropriate benefits but her outstanding bills and rent leave her no money to replace her old fridge/freezer. She feels everything has gone wrong for her over the last year and having no way to keep her food fresh seems like the last straw.
