After losing our home 5 years ago, we were placed in homeless accommodation, whilst we were lucky to have a roof over our heads we lost everything, our children lost everything.
In the 5 years we have been here we have been subject to damage to our car, lies to the DWP causing extreme poverty, we have been subjected to a hate campaign from various right -wing political ' sources ', the list goes on.
We are now very lucky to have been offered our forever home in an area where no one knows us and away from here, we are starting from scratch, no carpets, curtains, limited furniture, we cant get help from anywhere apart from a few basics, the move may not go ahead if we can't fund a removal company.
My husband suffers from fibromyalgia that has got progressively worse, we feel very lucky to be given this fresh start, we only have a few days to get out of the current home and start the tenancy in the new place. We have paid a heavy price for my husbands poorly health, he was earning a excellent salary and we had everything we ever needed and now we have paid an equally heavy price for trying to stand up to this government.
We really don't want to miss this opportunity, it's a new home out of the area we are currently in, where your children get picked on for not having the latest gadgets, trainers and all the other things that seem to be essential if you want to be part of the gang.
People who know me through social media will know what we have been through to get this far and we really don't want to lose this precious opportunit.
