H is a single Mum with two teenage children. She has a range of mental health difficulties and can't hold on to a job as a result. She has found it hard to manage her finances, especially as her children have needed extra items for school as they've got older. Her outgoings have therefore fallen behind her benefits, and she can't service her accumulated debt. Having consulted Citizens Advice, H has accepted that she should apply for a Debt Relief Order and would be grateful for help with the fee.

M is a single young man with learning difficulties. He normally manages 2 part-time jobs giving an income which is just about adequate, but both jobs collapsed due to Covid. He is now claiming Universal Credit, but the transition to benefits and the need to reduce his outgoings, without any other support, have left him struggling with debt. Citizens Advice are trying to help him and advise that he needs a Debt Relief Order. M can't afford the fee and would really appreciate help for this from Acts 435.
Y left her abusive husband and moved to a hostel with her son. She is being advised by Citizens Advice about a divorce. She is working and also receives all eligible benefits, but she has now been re-housed into a rented unfurnished flat with only basic kitchen items. There's no money left from her income after normal monthly outgoings, and she would be very grateful for help to meet her most urgent needs for mattresses and kitchen pots and pans.
A resident I’m supporting in our housing charity has had various debts build up throughout the years due to problems with mental health and overspending. He’s worked much of his life and became homeless in the last year after falling into a deep depression and losing his job. He is working with Christians Against Poverty to address these debts and they have advised him to apply for a Debt Relief Order. In a few months we hope to move him into his own accommodation and this would help him start afresh.
