I am representing a third party who requires to be put in

Resolved Question:

I am representing a third party who requires to be put in touch with a charity that supports very poor families. The husband
and wife have been sellers of the Big Issue for 8 years. Initially they were able to make a reasonable living. Now that the
magazine is over priced the bottom has fallen out of the market. They have not reacted quickly enough and are existing on
borrowed money. They need some respite until they are able to change direction in earning a living. Do you know of any
such charities - Google is hopeless.

I don't understand how this is a law matter. I would say it is more in the field of the Charity Commission or even Social Services

Good evening,

Sorry to hear about the family you are assisting that is having financial difficulty. There are many charities in the UK that can help as what I have done is to look for those that have a good record of assistance and can assist as soon as possible. Some for you to inquire with include:

1. Turn2US is a service that assists with financial difficulties specifically. They offer assistance with grants as well as financial support to families such as the one you are trying to assist:

https://www.turn2us.org.uk/

Grants are available for those in financial need. The same site offers assistance with this:

2. Grants help with paying bills:

3. GuidestarUK is a wealth of information as they catalog many of the charities found in the UK. You can then search by financial need for example to find one that can be the best help for your family in need:

I hope that this information was found useful as please inform me of any additional questions/concerns you have. Also if you could take a second to rate my assistance so that I know my help was found useful today.

Take care,

Librarian Michael
