#190528 You could offer the £2000 as a Full & Final settlement. It would give the creditors a 30% return, but given the age of the debts (5 years) and the difficulty they would face in trying to trace you to Australia and recover anything there, they might well accept.

#190533 Another option might be to simply carry on making the DMP payments, assuming you're going to be financially in a position to do it.
