Unfortunately this project was not successful.

My daughter and I are suffering with health problems due to the mould and damp caused by being unable to afford repairs to our home.

I'm 50 years old and unable to work due to my failing health.

I have epilepsy, fibromyalgia, idiopathic hyper insomnia, registered  both blind and deaf, sleep apnia, dual incontinence and with all these conditions I suffer from severe depression.

Before starting to loose my eyesight I was a bus driver and had to finish work in 2002, I have tried working in a call centre but suffered discrimination and when I tried to take the company to the employment tribunal I was paid to leave.

Over the years I have tried to maintain a good state of repair to our house but as my health deteriorates I've had to stop. My daughter suffers with breathing problems and so do I as a result of the damp and mould we have on the walls, ceilings and windows caused by a damaged roof with rotting beams, damaged gutters which are made from asbestos. The house is made of concrete and is rendered which is falling off and the windows are 30 years old and the seals and frames have failed, I'm also wanting to make a drive to make it easier for me as I'm having to use my wheelchair more.

We have tried saving money but things keep coming up and have to use our savings and also borrowing money off our parents.

I don't know if my situation warrants using this type of funding but if not I apologise for wasting your time.
