I'm an 85-year-old man and embarrassed to say that I've been the victim of coercive control and immigration marriage fraud going back 25 years.
My abusive ex and her family have taken me to the cleaners. They've been reported to the police and had non-molestation orders served by me and restraining orders served by others.
If I don't raise £235,000, I'll be forced out of my home of 25 years in the winter of my life. My home is especially disabled adapted and I rely on these adaptions. I've contacted my local homeless relief at the local council, who said because of the housing crisis, they can only temporarily house me in rough sleepers and high dependency shared hostel, without the disabled adaptations I need. This scares me a lot and I've been in and out of the hospital with the stress.
I am heartbroken about this. My neighbours, who I adore, are very saddened by the prospect of me going. I adore them and my home that I've worked hard for all my life (sometimes multiple jobs at a time).
