Hi, my name is Alexia

Hey there,
I have been living in hazardous conditions the past 3 years, in a flat that’s unfit to accommodate my access needs.

I‘m severely autistic with cerebral palsy, as well as other disabilities and health conditions, which make me pretty vulnerable, where the local council in Liverpool, as well as in Dorset, whom have demonstrated an intolerance against people with autism. I was staying with mum in Weymouth from over Christmas last year, and over the first lockdown, but through intolerable ignorance and cruelty, Dorset Council and mum’s landlord had me evicted, through such demonstration of hatred against me, and since returning back to Liverpool, it’s become very clear that I am no longer safe to remain in England, with no support around.

Fortunately, I have been offered a wealth of support through the Scottish Government and Nationally leading charities in Scotland, notably Drake Music Scotland, whom have offered a whole package of support, available for to enhance my music career, as well as community groups, and lifelong friends being around, who have been fundamentally practical in my wellbeing, and whom are concerned about my safety.

But cutting a long story short, with a property being offered in the near horizon through Link Housing, and have been left with no support in getting my belongings packed, and a rogue housing officer, and social work department, demonstrating no cooperation, nor demonstrating any autism awareness, I’m pleading for some assistance, if you would be able to help in, what I believe is God’s plan for me, to return to an area, where I will be supported and feel safe.

I can understand that we’re in a second wave of lockdown, but it would be awesome if we could arrange to chat around the issues that’s been raised, and possibly talk about the move at hand, especially when this pandemic has occurred further expenditure for products to enhance my wellbeing. I can offer to pay fuel costs, but in honesty, the charges removal companies are asking for is way too expensive, that I can afford, summing to an exuberant charge in the region of £695!

Praying that you will be able to help!
Alexia
