A is recovering from domestic violence, which left her with debts she cannot afford to repay. Could you help her and her children have a fresh start without this history holding them back?
A married couple need your help. The husband retired following a serious back accident and a year in hospital. He receives Disability Living Allowance and pension payments. His wife is not working and has poor physical and mental health, she is on medication and receives benefits to look after her husband. The wife received benefits for a number of years when suddenly DWP realised they were not entitled after they became aware of pension payments and now they have a debt of £20,000. They need £150 for the Debt Relief Order fees. They have less than £25 disposable income per month.
D is a lovely young lady working with Christians Against Poverty. She was with her ex-partner for 7 years - he was violent and controlling. He took out loans in D's name which she has not been able to pay back, so her debts have spiraled from there. The debts have contributed to her poor mental health. D has a seven year old daughter and she would love to be able to give her occasional treats. Can you help with a Debt Relief Order so D can get her and her daughter's life back on track?
R has bi-polar which means she struggles to hold down a job for long and was unable to cope with budgeting when moving constantly between work and Universal Credit. With our help she is now in receipt of disability benefits and is clear about her budget so should be able to remain out of debt. We would like to apply for a Debt Relief Order which would lift a huge weight off her.
M struggles on her own with two children, one of whom is autistic. Her kitchen flooring is coming up and proving to be very dangerous with the children. As she is unable to afford this outlay herself we are hoping to be able to help her with this request.
