Hi, this is me at my most desperate and here is why. Three years ago my children’s dad and I split up, after he left I found out he had been keeping all our money instead of paying the bills, I started getting nasty letters and bailiffs showing up at my door, I was working full time but I could not afford to pay the debts on top of the daily bills and feed my two daughters, then the worst happened, we got evicted, I grew up in the care system so I had no family to turn to for help, my girls and I became homeless, we sofa surfed for two years and struggled so hard but i finally got the well paid job I had been working towards, I became a children’s residential care officer! My girls and I found a nice little flat perfect for us and affordable with my new job, we could breath again and we were happy, but now I am scared it will all happen again, my job is a zero hour contract as I am a relief worker (bank staff) this didn’t matter at first because I was getting lots of hours but then they hired loads more staff and I find myself begging for shifts constantly only to find the Rota is full! I can’t make ends meet, I am looking for a new job which breaks my heart as this was my dream job I worked towards for years and i am halfway through an amazing qualification that comes with the job and sets you up very well for the future. In the meantime my bills are piling up and I’m starting to drown in stress, I havn’t told my girls because i can’t bare for them to go through this again and i don’t know what to do, I have nobody I can turn to, it is me and my girls against the world but the world keeps kicking us down no matter how hard I try! I am so scared, being homeless was such a dark time and my girls deserve better. Please if anyone can help us I would be eternally grateful and when I am back on my feet I will pay it forward and help others too!
