Weʼre raising £940 to Help paying for my rent, debt and car that broke down ...
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 never thought I'd have to do this, but unfortunately this is my last resort.

I moved to England not long ago, I'm only 19 and I know that's young, I had to move away from family for health reasons a few months ago and I will spend the rest of my life in England, with my new family. I managed to drive all the way from my country and had saved up thousands. I managed to rent my flat, found myself a job. After several weeks they refused to give me any work saying I only had to wait but after a few months I ran out of savings and so I quit and started working with another company. Unfortunately my mental health got very bad and I've been signed off work for almost 1 month and a half now, with no income at all since I'm not entitled to sick pay and am not able to apply for benefits due to my current disability. I have autism and very severe anxiety as well as 2 other conditions which we started a new medication for not long ago. I can't pay for my medication anymore (yes it's only 8 pounds but I literally have nothing left ...). A friend managed to get someone to come to my place to help me filling the forms to apply for benefits but they're not sure I can get anything anytime soon since I'm not British, rented my flat without benefits and arrived in England less than 6 months ago ...
My mental health has improved a lot, I'm happy with my life, have most people I care about around me but I just can't keep my head above the water anymore with my financial situation, I have 3 weeks left before my landlord can sue me and prompt me to leave ... I can't lose my flat and this new life that is finally happy here ...
My car (which I need for work since I am a dom care assistant) broke down about 2 weeks ago and I can't afford to buy another one and as long as I havent paid for the rent and all that debt I'm in, I can't do anything about the car situation.
I have 4 cats and whenever I have a bit of money I buy them loads of food in case. They've never had no food so far since I make sure I have enough for weeks, they are healthy and happy. As for myself, I go to food banks, I'm very grateful for that and do not need money for food at the moment.
I hope some of you can help me until I have enough to pay for the late rent so at least I know I'm not homeless, I would be incredibly grateful for that. Thank you if you've read all that and give something, there is no small amount, whatever you give is a step towards fixing my debt so at least I do not lose my house.
