Mother of four in need of assistance

In this case we have a mother of four adult children.  After deductions from her benefits because she has four adults living with her, she is left with not enough to live off and cover their bills.  One adult child works and helps her out, two others are in receipt of benefits themselves and give her a small amount each week.  The youngest has mental health issues and is struggling to claim benefits for themselves, so that they could offer some contribution to the household budget.  The mother has been getting increasingly into debt, and has been advised to submit an application for a debt relief order, which she needed help in applying for.  We agreed to pay the £90 fee.
