Weʼre raising £500,000 to help fund a new and better home to help make life easier for a family in rough times.

Crowdfunding is a new type of fundraising where you can raise funds for your own personal cause, even if you're not a registered charity.
The page owner is responsible for the distribution of funds raised.
Unfortunately our rented home has fallen into severe disrepair due to the previous owner cutting corners when restoring the home before our landlord bought the place. Unfortunately we are unable to live in our home and the landlord wants rid of it so is selling up and evicting us. I work full time on a low income and my partner cares full time for our kids. The council help by looking at homes for us to rent which are unaffordable or do not accept people who receive rent help. My only dream is to simply own my own home for my family, nothing more, nothing less. No more high rents or landlords, no more leaving under a tenancy, just my family home. We are now under threat of being housed in a B&B and temporary housing for years before we can get a home.

About the fundraiser
I'm just a family man trying to make ends meet. We were fine until we received an eviction notice due to the propertys structural repairs that are required. I just want a home for my family and one which isn't in the hands of a landlord, a place we can call ours.
