Homelessness prevention

The Problem:

A disabled single mother had rent arrears of over £2000. Possession proceedings had begun and she and her son were in danger of being evicted and becoming homeless. She had large debts including a water bill for over £4000 and bailiffs had been to her house to list goods for removal.

Action/Outcome:

We were able to maximise her income by helping her appeal her Employment Support Allowance and get it reinstated. We helped her to apply for Personal Independence Payment, which is a disability benefit. This meant she could now afford her rent and other living expenses. We also managed to have all of her debts written off.
