L can't hold down a job for long due to mental ill health. She became homeless and then took on a joint tenancy with a man who absconded, leaving L with debts which she will never be able to clear. She is now in a hostel and gets support from the hostel and a health worker but needs relief from her debt which is causing her great distress. A kind donation for the fee for a Debt Relief Order is the only way out of this unhappy mess, and L would be very grateful.
K has been in violent relationships. She is living in a women's halfway house with her two daughters, one of whom has ADHD. They have moved away from their school, church, and safe neighbourhood. K can't get onto the council housing list because of arrears in council tax, housing benefit and rent. To break out of this vicious circle she needs just £140 to clear her rent (the church will find the other £20). Thank you for your help.

M suffers very badly with arthritis and has been told by her GP that she must limit the number of hours she works. She is working 2 jobs, one in a morning and one in the evening so that she can have a break in between. She is not entitled to free prescriptions and is going without medication because she can't afford the charges. A pre-paid prescription certificate would cover the charges for a year and ensure she has the medication she needs. She would really appreciate your help.
"Due to long term health problems and a recent change in benefits I have to depend on a smaller amount of money each month to live on which I am finding increasing difficult. I have not been able to buy a replacement washer and have been relying on a launderette to wash my clothes but this is very expensive. I worry constantly about trying to manage my money and getting into debt so if I could get some help to buy a replacement washer this would be a great relief and I will be less stressed."
This 27 year old single mum of a two year old has just given birth to a baby girl. She does not have a pushchair and can't manage to go out until she gets one.

She has no support from a partner or parent but generally manages on her own. Your help would mean she could cope with everyday activities.
