Weʼre raising £5,000 to help get a young adult a home away from abusive family members and ready for a baby in a few months time.

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 am raising funds for a young male friend of mine who is unable to get a house through the council as they say he is not a priority.
He is beaten at home and constantly has things taken off him so that he is cut off from support from friends and professionals. He has no way of talking to anyone if things get bad at home. He has no way of escaping to another place to live. He is along and scared to do anything back. Unfortunately he is going to be made homeless and this makes it even harder for him.
The reason he is being made homeless is he has got a baby on the way with his girlfriend but unfortunately his family do not agree and so have chosen to kick him out and make his life even worse.
Due to the nature of this, I am unable to post his name or a picture of him as I do not want to make matters worse for him at home and I am sure that many of you would agree with my reasoning behind this too.
All funds raised will go directly to my friend so that he is able to get himself somewhere to live and set himself up away from the abuse of his family, allowing him to be safe and start a new life with his new family.

About the fundraiser
I have been helping others for a few years now. My biggest achievement is when I went to Borneo with my school to help build schools and other amenities for small communities alongside other projects. This time it is for a close friend of mine. He needs out and I'm going to help.
