Weʼve raised £50 to help prevent a young family from being homeless
- Funded on Wednesday, 6th March 2019
Crowdfunding is a new type of fundraising where you can raise funds for your own personal cause, even if you're not a registered nonprofit.
The page owner is responsible for the distribution of funds raised.
I have set this page up on behalf of a very close friend. Here’s the story on why I want to try and raise this money.
A young family of four (two children under 10) are due to be made homeless in december 2018. Three years ago this family moved into a private rent property not knowing it was filled with damp and black mould. For the past three years this family have been fighting to get the work done on their home, despite paying over £700 a month on rent the landlord was in no rush to get the work done. Fast forward to 2018, as insentive for the landlord to get it sorted, the family witheld their rent with every intention of paying once an agreement had been made wiith the landlord and themselves, four months of holding onto the rent and still no agreement made, so the family began paying rent again but unfortunatley due to unforeseen circumstances the withheld rent money had to spent on car repairs otherwise the family could not get to work or school. The family decided to get Environmental health involved. The youngest of the family is 4 years old, and now has Asthma for life due to the mould, the family dog passed away due to lung infection, again caused by the mould.
Now we are in November 2018, the family have been handed an eviction notice for December 8th 2018, have been deemed intentionally homeless by social housing so they can not be rehomed via those means, and can’t private rent due to the rent arrears. So i would like to try and raise as much money as possible to get this family a home before christmas, they have found a landlord who will accept them for private rent but for a large some of money upfront, Christmas is already cancelled for this family, they don’t need to be homeless as well.
