Our client has significant priority debts, including large rent arrears. They are at risk of eviction and the ongoing Universal Credit deductions are causing severe financial hardship. A DRO would enable our client to have a fresh start and protect them from being evicted. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thank you.
Christians Against Poverty are working with a family to manage their debt repayments. They have been making steady progress but Dad has recently lost his job and Mum's low income only just covers their living costs. The two children are currently sleeping on a broken, uncomfortable double bed. Your donations would allow the family to purchase bunk beds for the children, allowing them a good night's sleep. Your kindness is so appreciated.
D has been working with Noah’s Ark after a referral from her social worker. She suffers from Borderline Personality Disorder which makes her life very difficult. Her illness is exacerbated by the fact she is in debt, for council tax and rent arrears, amongst other things.

A is disabled and suffers from mental health issues. She has come to us for debt support and a Debt Relief Order is the most viable solution to clear close to £10k worth of priority and non-priority debt. A does not have the money to be able to pay for the DRO which is desperately needed to ensure she isn't evicted and to allow her to have a fresh start at managing her finances better in the future.

This single dad has learning difficulties and struggles to cope with day to day tasks. He cares for his 16 year old son, who also has learning difficulties and does not go to school as a result. They had to leave their house as it needed extensive repairs and cleaning. The state of the house was so bad most of their foodstuffs had to be thrown away, which means they are starting from scratch. They have support from food bank but grocery vouchers would allow Dad to stock up and begin feeding both him and his son properly again. Thank you.
