A, a single lady who doesn't really leave her house, is working with Christians Against Poverty to sort her debts and they have recommended a debt relief order as the way forward for her.

Applicant, who is on job seekers allowance, and is unlikely to be able to leave it, needs new footwear to allow him to continue acting fully as handyman and gardener at St Hildas Church. He works hard as a valued member of the church, and has grown in faith since he started coming here about a year ago. This has helped him cope with life issues also. He needs a strong pair of shoes particularly for gardening, and a smarter pair for general matters.

Lee lost his job in January & is struggling to manage financially. Despite a successful interview, he has problems with his DBS check, as his identity is being confused with his twin brother's! This is frustrating for him, but he is working with Christians Against Poverty (CAP) to clear his debts so that he can have a fresh start. Due to his tight budget, CAP are recommending a Debt Relief Order for Lee, but it would take him a long time to save for the fee. Your help would be much appreciated.

The client who was recently homeless has now been given his own flat but is still in need of support with furnishings for the property. We have been able to help him with couches and a Tv but he still needs a washing machine, cutlery and plates. Any support would go a long way to helping him back on to his feet as he looks for a job.
