How it all started

Some problems with finding a Job and Housing and Debt Relief. Basically, I have got some Eye Problems, Kerataconus and my son Leigh Roy has got some Mental Health Problems. I have had some Jobs before but now I am Unemployed and I am trying to find another Job. And a medical centre in Birmingham allowed me to claim some ESA and DLA for e.g. 2 or 3 years and then the medical centre in Coventry, Atos said I was not allowed to claim ESA and DLA. And then the ESA and DLA was stopped and we were Evicted. And £3.70 per week is deducted from my JSA to pay my Rent Arrears of £3,000. And there is a Homeless Network in Leamington Spa, Warwickshire, England, UK. And the Way Ahead Project said that the Homeless could Rent a room for £12 per week. And the Job Centre referred me to the Homegroup and I asked the Homegroup if I could Rent a room for £12 per week and they said no. So I am still trying to find some Housing for myself and I am trying to find out if the Rent Arrears could be wiped off and I am also trying to find out if Leigh Roy could get some Shared Accommodation in, e.g. Leamington Spa, Warwickshire, England, UK.

What I did to try to overcome it

Basically, I have visited and I have sent emails to some organisations that help people with Disabilities, the Unemployed and the Homeless.

How it made me feel

Basically, I am trying to get some Equal Rights and Justice, e.g. to find some more Housing and try to get the Rent Arrears wiped off. And try to find out if Leigh Roy could get some Shared Accommodation.

The outcome

Not yet.
