For most of my life I have suffered badly with depression, anxiety and learning difficulties, I'm under the care with mental health services and sadly I'm stuck on benefits living on just £80 per week in the UK.
I'm desperate to become self sufficient something I have realised which has made my health bad is working in office environments and retail, I guess been indoors surrounded by large teams and just feeling suffocated. Everyday I see jobs that I have experience doing and would love to do, I need the freedom to be able to drive and be free just having the ability to work in different parts of the UK.
Living on just £80 each week hardly pays the bills let alone for food or even attempt to save for driving lessons. I've spent many months desperately searching for grants or charities to help me but sadly it seems I continue to hit brick walls.
I need this chance in life to follow my dreams and open many news doors to get me off benefits once and for all.
Every donation would make a huge difference and would mean the world to me.
I just hope that somebody will understand my situation, I would even be willing to pay back anything you donate once I move into work.
Thanks so much x
