D is a qualified electrician with over twenty years experience. Due to his convictions, he's found it hard to secure work. When he came to see us at the end of May, he was about to be made homeless, as the Landlord was selling up. We helped him find new accommodation and; wonderfully, his new Landlord has also offered him a job as a Handyman, maintaining their properties. Please can you help D with the final piece in the puzzle, by funding much needed work tools to enable him to succeed? Thank you!

A was released from prison two weeks ago. He has been in and out of jail since he was eighteen and just spent his thirtieth birthday inside. Realising this isn't the life he wants to live, he is determined to turn his life around. He now has stable housing and is working with us to get himself into a paid job, but needs his Right to Work documents in order to start applying for jobs. We have requested everything else he needs, and built a CV, so this is the last piece of the jigsaw that will enable him to move on.

M had been living temporarily with his father, due to a relationship breakdown and suffering from mental health issues, and is unable to work because of his mental health. He has recently moved into a studio flat. His debts are not helping his mental health and he would like to apply for a Debt Relief Order; however, it would take forever to raise the fee. He recently received his Universal Credit and, after paying his bills, is left with £3 to buy food. Please can you help us raise the £90 fee to allow this gentleman to become debt free?
