Weʼre raising £1,200 to please help us raise the fees we urgently need to move home to avoid pending homelessness.
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.
18 months ago our landlord served us a section 21 notice to quit. We had always had a good relationship with him and hadn't any arrears so we was at first unsure why we received it. We found out it was due to the landlord wanting to move back into this house to his relationship breakdown, we went to the council and they told us we must stay until the day the bailiffs turn up or we will be seen as intentionally homeless. 18 months later and the court ordered date 18th of march is approaching, once we exceed that the landlord will be allowed to apply for bailiffs to remove us or high court which doesn't give us any more notice.
this was all through no fault of our own and over this 18 months we have tried to save up ourselves but due to constant unforeseen emergencies we just couldn't save at all, we have now find a house and they want £500 rent upfront and a £500 deposit, we have applied to the council for a dhp but don't know if they will accept it or if they will accept it before the landlord gets impatient and offers the property to someone else,
I am in receipt of disability benefits due to my auto immune kidney disease and other illnesses and my mental health however my partner works but due to it only being part time she cannot loan from her work,
this is our final hope to reach out to the public and it is really degrading but I don't see many other ways off trying to raise the funds we need as fast as we need them, I don't even know where I can share this as I don't have family need does my partner and were very isolated people so I don't have any friends and my partner only has her work associates so we have no one we can ask for help and no one we can turn to,
we are doing everything we can to avoid being turfed out by bailiffs as none of this is any of our fault what so ever and we have tried so hard to help ourselves out of this situation but self help has got us no where,
I was in two minds to say this but I feel I have to because I know people will say why don't you wait until eviction and let the council house you in a hostel? when I was 16 I was placed into a hostel I wont name that was for any age from 16 upwards and housed numerous vulnerable people alongside drug addicts and people on release from prison, after being in there for a week a man there gained my trust and he used to come in to my room and give me roll ups, well on one occasion he spiked me with something in the roll up (I found out later it was something called k2) and while I was comatosed he sexually assaulted me, at that age and in the mentality I was in at that time I was to ashamed to report it or ask for help so I put myself back on the streets and left to another town to have a fresh start after homeless for a while there I was placed in another hostel and on my first night in there I was held captive in my room and was robbed of all the little belongings i had the police got my stuff back for me and arrested the person but I was to scared to stay there so again went homeless and choose 2 years on and off the streets instead of going back into another hostel so that is my reason why i would not,
I am a good person and don't ever do harm to anyone Im always just at the receiving end of harm due to bad people picking up on my vulnerabilities, so I am pleading and begging to be given a chance as that's something Im yet to be given in my life. Please if you could find it in your heart to donate even £1 it would be a help,
Finally I will prove everything I've said is genuine if any proof is needed and also the reasons I've put 1200 when all I need is £1000 is because I don't know how much just giving charge for fees if I reach the target.
unrealistically I need to raise this deposit by Wednesday so the property im trying to get doesn't get offered to somebody else as this is my only hope of finally sorting life out as I do believe I really finally deserve a bit of a break from this suffering and mere existing and deserve to start living, please if you could help me it would go a long long way and again I'm more than happy to verify anything as I know there scammers out there but I am genuine and just need some help because self help isn't enough, thankyou for your time
William and Sarah
