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.
I wasa council tenant in 2013-2017 and i was paying my rent as usual. Come january 2017 my grandmother passed... i fell into deep depression... july 2017 and my best friend took his own life... my depression only got worse as well as my running from my spiralling rent arrears. I met my fiance in october 2017 and by december 2017 we had lost our first baby due to an ovarian ectopic pregnancy... fast forward september 2018 we lost or second baby to another ectopic pregnancy in my left tube. My partner couldnt take it and my sons and i were left homeless. We are currently in a homeless hostel and our council and private sector are refusing to re home as because of my arrears... i appreciate why they wont at this moment in time... despite my severe depression and circumstances they still wont even consider us for a home. If we manage to pay off our arrears we will be back onto the homefinder list and put as a priority to be housed. I have tried for a loan etc and even family but we dont have the support we had hoped. I appreciate my arrears are my own doing and i shouldnt have run from my problems but this is my last hope. As a mother im just asking for help. To make a better life for myself and my sons.
