P lives with his partner and their two children aged 7 and 16 in rented accommodation and they claim Universal Credit. P is currently unable to work as he is recovering from cancer treatment and their low income has led to their debts spiralling out of control. P is working with our 'Better Off Finance' project which teaches budgeting/financial capability and they have identified a Debt Relief Order as being the best option for dealing with his debts, as he has no money to repay them.
This client came in after receiving support last year when they where in a desperate situation. This time they were referred by local social services as their children had been put into care for the time being as they have no food, heating or electricity in the property. The family have had multiple issues with benefits over the last few weeks and now as they start to sort them out they require support in getting back on their feet. This funding would help them until their benefits are sorted.
C is a 40 year old woman with a genetic disorder that has caused learning difficulties and physical and mental health issues. She has recently been moved onto Universal Credit and is receiving less money than before. She is having difficulty managing on her new budget and needs help to pay for gas, electricity and food while she adjusts.
M had her benefit changed and is not receiving any money at the moment because of the changes in the universal credit. She would be very grateful for your help to pay for her gas and electric in the interim period.
WD is a Christians Against Poverty Debt Centre client. He has a very tight budget and often can't afford to buy food. He also has debts he can't afford to pay. He would be very grateful for any help to pay the fee for a Debt Relief Order which would clear his debts.
