Timeline PhotosToday we pray for Universal Credit claimants. Last week a report released by the Trussell Trust showed that one in five claimants fear they will be forced to turn to food banks if the Government scraps the £20/week uplift to the benefit. We pray for stability of income for people relying on Universal Credit, and for food banks already under pressure in the pandemic. #StayAndPrayEvery day, we’re encouraging you to lift up your eyes and pray for others around the world as part of #StayAndPray.

Helping clients with their debt involves sending lots of letters, so the increase in postage costs will have an impact on us. If any one would like to gift us some 2nd class postage stamps, that would be fantastic! Buy stamps before 1st January, as they are going up to 66p. Alternatively please consider making a donation towards our costs - economic predictions indicate it will be a busy year for us. Help us to help clients to break free from debt. hmac.uk/about/hmac-funding/... See MoreSee Less

"May I once again convey my heartfelt thanks for all of the invaluable help that you have given me over the past three and a half years. I honestly didn't know where my life was going when we first met, but with your professionalism, help, support and great kindness, you have lifted me from the depths of despair and I am pleased to say that I am now in a much, much better place than I could ever of imagined back in 2017 and heading in an upward direction on a daily basis. Thanks to you, life is now worth living, which I am now trying to do to the full." ... See MoreSee Less
