Very vulnerable man in debt

We were made aware of a vulnerable 60 year old adult, he is blind, is disabled and was recently moved from claiming Employment Support Allowance to Universal Credit and put into the work capability group, despite being blind.  This move reduced his monthly income by £300, causing him to fall seriously into debt with his rent, gas, electric and water.  Our agents have asked if we could consider covering the cost of a debt relief order, so that he can get his debts into order.  We agreed to send the £90 to cover this, plus an extra £30 boost.
