My name is Joy, a single mother of two boys. I Started working as a carer from the age of 21 years. The reason I choose the job is because; I am passionate about caring for others and also knew it would give me flexibility to care for my children.
At the beginning of last year, I was assisting an elderly lady and in the process hurt my back saving her from falling. Things have not been the same since as I am on constant pain and unable to work.
I have fallen behind with my mortgage and most of bills. The mortgage payment was previously £500 but now gone up £1200. I have an arrears of 6 months.
I have decided to change careers and start fostering mother and child through a government scheme. I believe I have the knowledge and skills to guide young mothers to be able to stand on their feet.
I have been informed in order to do this I have to clear all my debts and also do some home improvement.
I would like raise around £50000 to clear the debts, replace the roof and windows.
Thank you for taking time to read this letter and your donations.
