Mrs W lives with her two children in a rented property in the West Midlands. Until recently she was in an abusive relationship and not until she left was she aware that any debt existed. Once her husband had left the property, all the debts were transferred to Mrs W to clear.
As a result Mrs W is now suffering from depression and is now receiving medication and therapy to aid recovery.
One of the debts that Mrs W was left with was her water charge of £1,815. A grant from the Severn Trent Trust Fund was awarded to clear her debt in full, which hopefully helps her to focus on a positive future for herself and her children.
