Family of four in supported accommodation

A mother and her three children are all living in supported accommodation.  The children are all under 8 years old and the eldest is subject to a child protection order following physical abuse from his stepfather.  The mother is working hard to ensure that the children are kept safe, which the child services are happy with.  The family are in arrears with rent and until this is caught up they cannot begin to bid on alternative accommodation.  The eldest child has been in and out of hospital due to epilepsy, and suffers with bed wetting.  In an effort to address this they are trying to create an environment where this young person feels safe and so they need to purchase him a new bed.  We agreed to send the family £200 to pay for the new bed and to have some money left over to go towards the family debts.

Man with learning difficulties in debt

We were approached to help a single man with learning difficulties who lives in supported accommodation.  He is unable to read or write and they have been concerned that he might be in a considerable amount of debt.  It has been very difficult to get him to let them know quite how much debt and so has taken some time to get the final figures.  He has given them the information and it comes to £10,000, so they need to apply for a debt relief order on his behalf.  However he does not have the necessary £90 to cover the fee to get this processed.  We offered to pay the £90 on his behalf and arranged to have a cheque sent out to be included with the application.
