S is a young man who, through a combination of events, has no money and nowhere to live. Two months ago his partner, and mother of his children, died very suddenly. Owing to the grief and emotional and mental strain which followed, he lost his job and his home. His children can no longer live with him. He is relying on friends and family to give him a bed for the night. Until he is in a state where he can actively look for work and receive benefits he is in severe financial need.
This lady is an asylum seeker who wants to return to her home country but needs suitcases to pack up her things.
E is struggling financially following the loss of her employment. Her only source of income is Universal Credit but she currently loses 40% of this each month to pay debts that the Department for Work & Pensions deduct from her benefit. A Debt Relief Order would enable us to clear all her debts and have her benefit income reinstated to her full entitlement.
L has significant debts including rent, council tax and utility arrears. These are being deducted from her benefit income and she is struggling to support herself and her two children. In addition she has multiple other non-priority debts, one of which she has to pay by giving up her child benefit. A Debt Relief Order would allow her a financial fresh start.
G currently receives Job Seekers' Allowance and is currently getting support from a food bank. He was a bus driver but due to sickness had to leave work and is now struggling to find employment despite applying for lots of jobs. He also cares for his elderly parents. His daughters stay with him at weekends but they each need a new bed so they can stay comfortably in his flat. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
I is single and lives in a local authority flat. He is currently unemployed and receives Universal Credit but has got badly into debt with his rent and faces eviction at the end of August if the debt is not cleared. He has no hope of doing this, and his only option is a Debt Relief Order but he cannot afford the fee. This would help to secure his tenancy, and give him a fresh start, improving his health and well-being and increasing his chances of finding future employment.
Due to being depressed I started to gamble a number of years ago and as a result of this I have fallen behind with rent, paying bills and daily living costs. I constantly worry about my debts and the threat of debt agencies calling at my home. If I was able to get help with a debt relief order of £90 this will help me to sleep at night and would help me with my depression and anxiety. If I am able to get help with my debts I hope to return to work at some point in the near future.
After my marriage broke down my wife would not allow me to see my children I became depressed and anxious. I then lost my job and had to apply for benefit falling into debt and not being able to cope with everyday activities. I am now accessing support via my doctor, trying desperately to rebuild my life which is very difficult as I have the constant worry of debt hanging over me. If successful in my application the debt relief order would give me a chance to get back on track.
