P. discovered that she has cancer and just had extensive surgery to remove the cancer yesterday. When I went to visit her in the hospital she was extremely concerned and anxious that she wouldn't be able to pay the rent, as she discovered that she cannot leave her house for 6 weeks as she is on strict bed rest while she recovers. She is self-employed and will not be able to do her work. Her first universal credit payment will not come until the middle of March.

The client came to us after having all oh his money stopped for 6 months. He missed his appointment due to illness- he showed a doctors note but he was still sanctioned.

This money will help pay bills and keep above water until his finances are back in order.
T lost his wife to cancer 7 years ago and since then has been struggling financially. He is his disabled son's carer and is on Universal Credit.

L is married with three children. As a result of financial abuse from a former relationship, L has accrued a substantial amount of debt. She attempted to address this issue when she was in a position to make payments, however her creditors refused to negotiate with her. L has since attended Citizens Advice and we have determined that a Debt Relief Order would resolve her situation and give her a fresh start. L is not currently in a position to afford the £90.00 and requires help.
The client contacted us after his income was reduced and he found himself unable to pay for basic utilities including gas and electric. He has now been without gas or electric for 3 weeks and is eating at soup kitchens because he cannot heat up any food in his home and he has no money to purchase anything else. He is very desperate for help as he waits for another few weeks until his money is sorted. This funding would go along way in helping him.
