Unfortunately this project was not successful.

To create a Future that my son can be proud of me for achieving.

by Stuart in London, England, United Kingdom

Hi my name is Stuart and this really is a last roll of the dice for me to achieve what I so badly wanted to do. I am looking to raise money to help me continue with my studies that will help me build a better future for my son who is now 15months old. I am currently a student at Goldsmiths University studying a degree in Sociology and criminology however due to the passing of my Nan and changes in rules that govern Universal Credit I am now in a desperate financial situation. After contributing to my Nans funeral in January, it then transpired that Universal Credit were changing the rules so that I would basically not get help with rent any longer which has plunged me, my partner and my son into huge rent arrears and currently have an Order seeking possession against us. I am an ex-convict who has been making great strides to fix the mistakes of my past however it really does seem like the system wants me to make the same mistakes, which of course I have absolutely no intention of doing and have progressed successfully to year 2 of my degree. However this is now in jeopardy due to these circumstances of which I had no control. I really want to show my son that if you make mistakes, you can make up for them and show him that I am actually a good person and that I can actually achieve something in life. Thank you in advance for taking the time to read this and hopefully donate to help show and prove to my little boy that no matter what you do wrong, you can always turn it around. Thank you again
