This is a long shot but it's worth a go. I'm a 28 year old male about to become homeless in 4 weeks. I currently have no job and receive no benefits (I'm not wanting to sponge off anybody). I currently live in Redditch with a family member who has helped me out for a few months whilst trying to get back on my feet (I did jobs around the house to pay for my keep) they are being evicted from the property due to struggling to pay the rent. I have moved around previously but struggled to cope hence the help from a member of my family. I have no other family to ask for help or a place to stay. The council will not help due to not being in the 16-25 age bracket and want me to get put back on their housing list (I was on the list previously for a number of years but due to being a single male I fell right down the pecking order of being housed). A lot of other organisations are the same they have the 16-25 year old age bracket so are not able to help. I am currently looking for work and have worked since the age of 16 so getting a job isn't an issue but there's very limited jobs available at the moment in my area. I'm looking for a place to stay where I can look for a job in the area. As I said I'm not looking to sponge off anybody or stay somewhere for free (I can help out and do jobs to earn my keep) I will pay my way and more once I gain employment. If anybody can help or suggest something (I've explored a lot of other options) then it would be greatly appreciated.
I'm not expecting anything from this ad but I honestly don't know what else to do.
Thanks for reading.
I'm looking for a good samaritan not anything sexual (I've had to put this in as I've had a couple of replies regarding this) I would rather sleep rough than prostitute myself for a place to stay.
