Citizen’s Advice Story
Walton Charity’s Individual Grants programme provides financial support to local individuals. The support we offer ranges from providing essential household items to vocational training and associated costs in order to help those moving from claiming benefit into work or those wanting to improve their employment opportunities.
We allocate a Delegated Fund to the Citizen’s Advice Elmbridge (West), so that they can help Elmbridge residents in crisis. Recently they wrote to us regarding a client who had mounting debts that he simply could not meet. He was unable to apply for bankruptcy because he could not afford the court fees. The Citizen’s Advice were able to allocate funds for this purpose and their client applied to make himself bankrupt.
Citizen’s Advice say that it was a huge relief to their client, and he is now in a position to move forward without the worry and anxiety that his liabilities had been causing to both him and his family.
