Having been rehoused due to threats to the family from neighbours, our applicant and family have been instructed by court order that the house they moved to must now be returned to a beneficiary following the recent death of the home owner. In less than a month our applicant has to move again. This has placed undue financial pressure on them due to extra costs associated with moving family to new premises. Extra and unexpected costs which will not be covered by Council or the new Landlord.

This lady feels a prisoner in her own home as a family member has a key to her front door and refuses to return it. This person has previously entered her home to leave 2 large dogs at her property when she has been out. The dogs have caused so much damage that she is in danger of being evicted unless this is rectified. She feels her first step must be to change her locks but is unable to find the money to do this. Please can you help by donating £120 so that she can protect her home.
