Hello. My name is Clare. I am desperately seeking some help to be able to fund a property. Here's a little bit about me. I grew up in a very broken home, arguing shouting parents, a very aggressive brother and no escape from all this. This all started when we moved up to Norfolk from Essex. So living in the middle of nowhere my only escape was headphones or a field. I was blessed with meeting my soul mate, Tom in high school. We have dated on-and-off through school but since leaving college we have been dating for 2 years in June and love each other to bits. Tom sadly lost his mother to cancer in December and had to leave his home due to his brother and sister needed their own rooms. So we were both pushed out of our family homes. This forced us towards our only option, a caravan. We having been living in that piece of crap for 8 months. It is cold, damp, tiny and we have no room to breathe. I haven't been able to get a job for over 8 months now, have been turned down for job seekers allowance and housing benefit. Tom has been working for about 7 months now as an apprentice so as you can imagine, low pay. Neither of our families has any money so can't support us. We rescued a beautiful staffy, he was just abandoned. We are turned down by countless landlords to rent properties because of our situation we can't help! We find many people hate a dog in their property too. We are very depressed about our situation and find life very hard. So having been turned down by the government, this is my last resort. We have no where else to turn. Every little will help us more than you know so if you are able to help us in any way we would be so grateful. Thank you for reading. God bless you.
