£50 needed for a Debt Relief Order

S and her partner have 2 young children. They both work zero hours contracts, and their salaries are uneven and especially so during the pandemic. Their Universal Credit varies a lot, which makes it hard to manage their household finances. In addition the children were off school during the lockdown, so S had to choose between childcare costs and not working. As their debts have now built up, S needs a Debt Relief Order and would be very grateful for help with the fee.

Citizens Advice believe that a Debt Relief Order is the only way forward, and V would be very grateful for a kind donation for the fee.

£60 needed for a Debt Relief Order

D is unable to work due to physical and mental health problems. Her Personal Independence Payment has been withdrawn, and, while Citizens Advice are helping her through the lengthy process of an appeal, D is struggling with this reduced income. She also has costs associated with her health needs, contributing to the build-up of her debts. A Debt Relief Order would clear these, as well as alleviating the worries on her mind. D can't afford the fee and would really appreciate help with this.

£40 needed for food supplies

S is a recent widow with 5 teenage children. She gets all her benefit entitlement, but her bereavement leaves her unable to work at present. Citizens Advice are helping her to get funding for school uniform and to reduce her fuel bill, but she struggles to provide food and shoes for her children. £100 for a major supermarket shop to stock up with non-perishables would make a huge difference to S just now, and she would be really grateful for help from Acts 435.
