I was a student studying politics and history until December when I decided to defer until September due to depression (I wanted to improve my mental health because it was having a negative impact on my work) therefore am no longer receiving student loans. I had difficulty securing a job but have managed to get one starting on the 28th January, however, my rent is due soon and I don’t have enough to cover it (rent for student housing is extortionate) and I havent been able to afford my medication either which is why I chose to drop out of university in the first place. My house really isn’t worth the rent I have to pay for it bearing in mind that all five tenants are expected to pay over £400 each and the agency and landlord soon want us to move out for a week whilst they get it ready for viewing as they plan on selling it. I am estranged from my mum and so have no family support and cannot get a quick loan to be able to afford a cheap hotel/motel type place (such as travel lodge) because I wouldn’t be able to afford the repayments. The other tenants I live with are all staying in their boyfriends place or at a cheap motel for the week because they need to stay for their studies. So far my only option is to take the week off and go to my retired grandparents (however they live hours away, I cannot afford the train fare and I cannot afford to lose out on a weeks employment).
my rent each month is £460 and my medication is £16 every two weeks. I would appreciate any donations, thank you if you have read this x
