B has mental and physical health issues that have led him into debt. He has a history of alcohol and drugs but has now been clean for 8 months and is desperate to start a new life for himself. B is working with Christians Against Poverty to help him find relief from his debts, and he has a good support network. Please could you help him with the fee for a Debt Relief Order?
We are friends with a lovely family; a young mum with three small, very polite children. Mum is struggling to pay the bills as dad left them after many years of coercive coercion on the family. The change for the family is a joy to see in their mental health, but the financial situation is causing problems at the moment. Mum has a part time job and we deliver a food parcel once a week until they are back on their feet. Please can you help them to pay for their electricity and gas?
A thirty two year old client of the Sue Lambert Trust is an unpaid live-in carer for her aunt who suffers from dementia. She is unable to work as a result of poor mental health and caring responsibilities, is in receipt of benefits and existing on a low income. She is in need of a small freezer which she can put her own food in, as her aunt's freezer is only big enough to be stocked with her own food. As she is unable to afford this herself at the moment, your help would be greatly appreciated.
S and S are a lovely couple, working with Christians Against Poverty (CAP), who met when they were quite young and lived with parents. In their words they were careless with money and took out payday loans, but this quickly spiralled out of control. They then moved into a home together, had children, saw their debts grow and become overwhelming, and they buried their head in the sand. They finally reached out for help to CAP and since then they already feel life has turned around. Can you help them with a fresh start?
My client, who is a care leaver, has got a job working as a Landscape Gardener. His boss is asking that he learns to drive so he can drive the work van and have more responsibility. He is on quite a low wage at the moment so is struggling to afford driving lessons. He would really benefit with some money for a starter package so he can begin the lessons. He really enjoys the job, and it has been brilliant for his mental health, so this would give him more freedom and confidence.
A is 62, has cancer and is undergoing a course of chemotherapy. Due to the severity of the treatment, she is only able to effectively communicate every other week when the effects of the chemo have worn off. She is working well with Christians Against Poverty who are organising a Debt Relief Order for her, as her income has dramatically fallen due to her inability to work at the moment. A is understandably not coping with day to day living particularly well and knowing that some kind person is willing to help her out would lift her spirits.
