A single man who had been hit badly by benefits cuts following the departure of his adult son from the household was in desperate need to some support. We became aware of this man's situation, and from the information we were able to get, he was in a dire situation and in desperate need to apply for a debt relief order in order to clear some of the debts he has, especially the high debts to do with his housing which will allow him to avoid eviction and homelessness. As he is only receiving job seekers allowance of £73.10 per week, it was impossible for him to meet his bills and buy some food, and then on top of that find the £90 necessary to apply to the Insolvency Service to have a debt relief order be processed. We considered that as this would mean this man could keep a roof over his head it was an easy decision to make.
