Give to someone in need
Acts 435 is about giving to people directly, to help them bridge the gap when they are facing a financial crisis.
Can you help a specific person in need?

J is a client who approached Christians Against Poverty for help with his debts. Unfortunately, he suffers with Agoraphobia, which is impacted massively by his debts, which, in turn, makes the debt situation worse and causes a spiralling effect. A Debt Relief Order would be a complete fresh start for this client, financially, and would enable him to focus on getting well without the stress of the debt he has.

A is a victim of a family relationship breakdown, to the extent that she felt she had to leave home. She was managing ok until she was made redundant during the pandemic. Although she found other employment, it depended on her having a car, which was scrapped in June. Her options are now limited, as she cannot afford another car and, on her current low income, cannot clear the debts she accrued whilst not working. A Debt Relief Order will help her make a fresh start to move forward again.

S has been left by her husband in the family home, and is surviving on £700 Universal Credit per month, whilst also trying to pay the mortgage and support her teenage children, with no financial support from her ex. Their one toilet has been broken for several weeks and needs to be repaired urgently, as it is currently unusable. Getting this fixed is a priority for M and her family, and would remove one of her many current worries.
