Disabled Family Moving Fund
Hello, first of, thanks to you for taking the time to read this.
I am 41 and suffer from a long term disability called "CMT" (Charcot Marie Toothe to be exact) and we only have benefits to fall back on.
CMT is a muscle wasting condition that makes gripping, walking, standing painful
Upto now, myself and my family have survived. Then last week, we received, out of the blue, a "notice to quit" our current tenancy. This has caused incredible hardships to us all as we need to move before the 16th January 2018.
Both myself and partner don't work as we both have troubles walking, as she does what she can by looking after me also.
We want to move out of South Wales, UK, back to the East Midlands, Leicestershire area, but the costs involved in this keep going up due to the following conditions.
- No DSS
- No Pets
The only way we can get somewhere will be for 6 months then we will have to move again, but at least we will be back with family and friends.
But we need to cover 6 months rent upfront.... This would kill the NO DSS on housing
This to us, is more than we could even borrow, something I don't have access to anyway due to being on benefits without paying 6 billion % back...
Basically, If your disabled and suddenly become homeless, even with money, you can't get somewhere to live without going through pages and pages of council forms, then if your lucky, you might get somewhere 6 months down the line... We don't have 6 months. I need to move back towards my family and friends as Wales has no prospects for my Sons wise getting employment where we currently live.
I am running out of ideas on how to raise the money, then I registered on GoFundMe with the hope someone can help us raise the cash needed.
This isn't just for me, it's for my Partner and two sons.
I also am sorry for lack of photos, I don't own a digital camera or mobile phone.
If you can, please help us reach the target in time.
Will Platts and Family
