I have suffered from domestic violence for many years and the last time my ex-partner hit me my daughters called an ambulance i had a "fracture of orbital bone" which left me with depression as well as the prospect of losing my children because Lewisham children's social services declared it was my fault I got hit! Which led to rent arrears whilst housing benefit and universal credit switched over. But Lewisham Council would not back date anything therefore "Optivio Housing Association" evicted myself and my daughters. Lewisham Council did however place us in temporary housing and 1 year later decided to inform social services that my daughter would be homeless and terminated my accommodation with the private landlord but neglected to mention it to me. This has happened twice now so I would like Boris Johnson to safeguard any other vulnerable woman who is suffering from domestic violence/abuse. Not only have I been damaged mentally & physically i have also been victimised by Lewisham Council! How is this acceptable & do the council and my local MPs not have a duty of care towards me! Also my house was burgled and no-one has taken responsibility because no-one seems to care.
I would like to help create a law that states that any woman fleeing violence should be entitled to housing and not considered as making herself intentionally homeless and helped with discretionary payments if arrears are due to their domestic abuse/violence situation due to their living arrangements...
I have no savings so will need help with getting a deposit together which I will pay each and every person back as soon as go back to work.
