A lady who has recently been given settled status in the UK has been a victim of domestic violence. She has had to move urgently away from her ex-husband, who paid all the bills so she is currently without any access to money. She has submitted a claim for Universal Credit but is in a battle with the DWP as to whether she is entitled to any benefits or not. In the meantime she has no money for food, bus fares or to top up her energy meters, so we offered to send her £50 to last her until she can get her UC claim resolved.
