M is a 56 year old man with severe mental health issues. He had a breakdown as recently as last week and suffers with anxiety, depression and suicidal thoughts. M was previously in an abusive relationship which had a significant impact on his mental health. M is currently applying for Personal Independence Payment (PIP) but in the mean time is struggling to stay on top of his bills and afford to feed himself. Please donate so he can stay on top of his finances until his PIP is awarded. Thank you.
E has been in a hostel due to family difficulties and has been finding it hard to manage her money and has got into debt. She came to us seeking advice and we have been helping her to get her debts sorted out. She is looking to the future and is in a better place to be able to look after her children.

This single young man has fled domestic violence. He is now trying to rebuild his life by starting a part-time college course next week. Unfortunately he does not qualify for a bursary and does not have any money for the fares to and from college. He desperately wants to start a new life and get qualified and meet new people. The college is too far to walk to, so he really needs help as he wants so hard to succeed in life now.
Our client is a lone parent with a child still at school and struggling to make ends meet. She has a part time job and relies on Universal Credit but with a number of bills due for payment. She is unable to meet the costs on her present income. With the ongoing difficulties around Covid-19 her ability to keep regular hours has been difficult, and delays in benefit adjustments have caused her to fall behind. This has placed enormous strain on the household.
The 16-year-old daughter of one of our Christians Against Poverty clients is starting college and needs a new laptop. The family are working with us to repay their debts but have no available 'spare' income to fund a replacement laptop - even a second-hand one - and they are also unable to take out any loans at the moment, so any donation will be greatly appreciated.
Due to Covid J had to give up her job of 18 years as her partner has Huntington’s disease. Whilst out of work for six months they went into debt with rent and electric.
