S is part of a very personable couple who have great difficulty in managing their finances. The situation now means that their only course of action is to seek individual Debt Relief Orders. The couple both have individual debts as well as joint debts, so they each must make a separate application for a Debt Relief Order. Going forward, the couple have made great strides in controlling their spending and living within a budget. Would Acts 435 donors please consider giving to this lady?
D is a gentleman who has in the past found it challenging to live within his means. He now is coming to terms with the concept, and the future looks bright. He is the husband of S who is the subject of a separate request. Due to the nature of the Debt Relief Order legislation, each partner must make an individual application so that their joint debts are addressed. If only one partner applies for a Debt Relief Order the other, for most debts, will be liable for the full amount. Can I ask you to consider helping D?
A is an intelligent young woman who finds relationships and motherhood difficult.

P has been trying to get ID for quite a while now but kept getting knocked back as the legal system has changed. Please help P get a deed poll so he can legally change his name to what he has been called for nearly 30 years. This will help him get ID, which is the key to opening the door for a bank account, housing and a lot of employment. P has worked with us for a number of months after his life fell apart due to alcoholism, but has slowly rebuilt his life.
This client came to us after finding himself in need of support to get to and from job interviews and to his support meetings. He is currently missing out on interviews and not getting the correct support because he cannot afford to keep getting buses to the places he needs to be due to low income, and cannot walk too far because of bad health. This would help him in so many ways and enable him to attend every appointment and meeting he has.
K is 21 years old and is estranged from her family. She lives alone but has no cooker as the one she bought second hand has broken and she cannot afford to have it repaired or buy a replacement. She has been eating takeaways but these are expensive and not healthy, she would prefer to cook her own hot meals. Could you help her to buy a mini oven and hob? If she had one she would be able to cook for herself. Thank you for considering this request.
