R is suffering from mental health issues following an abusive relationship and has had to recently move to avoid further threats to her and her 3 year old child. During the relationship, there was significant financial abuse and R was encouraged her to ignore mounting debts that she incurred due to the stressful situation she found herself in. Petitioning for Bankruptcy would allow her to start afresh financially and focus her attention on raising her child and improving her mental health. R has already raised £500 personally, and another grant has given £80, so we are asking for donations towards the final £100.
