We’re young mothers and we can’t find secure housing for us and our kids

We live at the Focus E15 hostel for young mothers and babies in Newham. There are also young people there who don’t have children. We’re classed as homeless and the hostel is temporary accommodation. It is cramped and damp. We’ve received evicition notices from the hostel because the council is cutting Support People funding that the East Thames housing association uses to support our services. We can’t afford to rent privately and private landlords don’t want to rent to us because we are on benefits. Newham council wants to send us out of the borough, hundreds of miles from our families.
