The applicant suffers from depression and confusion. He has had multiple family problems and bereavement in his life. Because of his circumstances he could not cope and fell into debt. He is on benefits and the Citizens Advice Bureau is now working with him to put his finances in order and have recommended a debt relief order. However, he needs the fee to go ahead with this.
I have a substantial amount of rent arrears and have no way of paying. I am at risk of eviction because of this situation and would appreciate any support that you may be able to provide.
I have multiple debts that I am unable to pay, and creditors and debt agencies who are constantly contacting and verball y threatening me with bailiff action. I have mental health issues and have found things very difficult lately. I am now receiving support from Bill from DISC, and he is supporting me to source affordable accommodation to meet my and my 6 children's needs.
‘Alison’ has been struggling to balance household costs with difficult circumstances. She has recently lost her low paid job which has added to her struggles in keeping up with bills and paying off debts. A Debt Relief Order would be a massive benefit to ‘Alison’, both for her financial situation by clearing her debts and to relive the stress she is currently suffering from. It would also help her to focus on looking after her young child.
J and A are working their way out of debt with the help of Christians Against Poverty. They have 4 boys aged 3 - 10 and much of their clothing was stored in an outhouse where it has got badly damaged by damp, so they need more. They will also be needing school uniforms for September. A gift of £100 towards new clothes would really bless them.
E is working her way out of debt with the help of Christians Against Poverty. She has severe health issues and is waiting for surgery on her leg. She lives alone with her 6 year old son. Her cooker no longer works and we would like to bless her with a reconditioned cooker. This would make a big difference to her.
Due to a health condition I have fell behind with my rent and currently have arrears of over £500.00, and would be grateful of any support that you may be able to offer to me.
D has been victim of fraud and has been paying all her benefits into the account of this fraudster. She is now working with Christians Against Poverty to sort out her finances and its essential she is able to restock her cupboards and put on gas and electric so she can cook and live. She has been terrified and paid what was demanded. It would be lovely to show her kindness is still there, that this has been a one off situation. Many thanks.

I did not put a claim in for housing & council tax benefit when my wife died and am being harassed by creditors chasing money that I do not have and cannot repay. I would be eternally grateful for any help that you may be able to offer to me and my family."
