Hi thank you all so much for your help do far. I found somewhere to swap too but it's going to take longer than I have left on the storage unit. And it's about to double in price. So if anyone can help me towards that it'd be really appreciated.
Please help me and my little dogs Yo-yo and Bubba Wolf and my have a safe home.
I have been struggling to survive with an abusive neighbour for the last six years. Repeated appeals to the council have done nothing. This has been escalating since October 2016, but reached crisis point last week and now me and the little dogs are not safe to stay. He has regularly sprayed them with water or those really loud dog spray things... but now he has wrecked my garden chucking pallets when my little dogs were in the garden and purposely opened the gate to let my dogs out on the street. I am afraid for their lives.
I'm a survivor of childhood abuse and have various mental health issues - PTSD being one of them. My Neighbour has been threatening my space, harassing me, friends, partner and their dogs, making my home feel really unsafe. My mental health nurse, Doctor, and all who know me, have seen a rapid decline in my mental health due to this situation.
One of the things I liked to do is to help the community, like providing taxi support for hospital or helping other friends who have energy issues or agrophobia to get out and to appointments, but due to this trauma and being triggered I am now suffering from agoraphobia and I've lost all structure from my life. It is just my lovely little dogs keeping me sane(ish).
I find it hard to ask for help but I can't go back to my home and I want to keep Bubba Wolf, Yo-yo safe. I have tried really hard to get support from the council but that has been a nightmare and they have 'lost' evidence and have backtracked on promises, leaving me even more depressed and let down. Even my friend/carer was forced out leaving me without invaluable support.
The money I will raise will mean instant safety for us all as I won't have to go back. It will pay for movers to remove and store most of my furniture, to do a flat swap and to have a heated van to sleep in for the dogs and me till that happens and so I'm not reliant on friends and so I don't end up on the street homeless.
I estimate £300 for removals and packing then £300 for heating my van then up to 4 months storage at big yellow. I'm hoping that if there is any money left re storage that will pay for the move to the new flat. I'm hoping to be free from constant re traumatisation for me and my dogs whilst waiting to be rehoused.
Anything anyone could give would be amazing!
I just want to feel safe and for my dogs to be free to play happily without danger.
