My sister Micheala, is going to become homeless in February.
She currently rents a static caravan with her boyfriend. They have recently been told that they must move out by February as the landlord has now sold the land and the static caravan homes.
In September Micheala broke her ankle and has been living on statutory sick pay since then. Therefore she has not been able to do any saving as its just enough to live on. She has contacted the council for help, but unfortunately they have not been able to put her into housing as of yet, however she is still on the waiting list - but in category D - (so could take up to a year to help her) obviously this is not quick enough. They have however offered to help her with rent if she can find a private rental property... This is where the crowdfunding plea comes in. Micheala needs £2020 for the deposit but due to loss of earning from her injury she simply doesn't have the money. She can borrow from her family the initial £325 that she needs to secure the property, its just the deposit she needs help with. Her boyfriend does work but currently with her being on sick pay his money is covering they're monthly expenses and food. Unfortunately no one in the family has that money or we would have already given it.
She does not know that i have made this page and i am hoping to find this money by early December - as an early xmas present - as that is when the property becomes available.
This is a last resort to stop her from becoming homeless, please help us, a little goes a long way!
Thank you in advance,
