C was the principal carer for her mother until she died two years ago, all of C's savings were used to pay for the burial. C had a five week delay before getting her first Universal Credit payment and since then her debts have accumulated. She had slept on a mattress on the floor for many years but took a budget loan to buy a bed, she has rent and mobile phone arrears. Citizens Advice are helping her to manage her debts and this support from Acts 435 will help her to get ahead on some of her repayments.
