Single parent placed out of london away from support

This petition had 134 supporters

I am a single mum who has a 10 month old daughter. I was made homeless when i was pregnant and my only chance was to go to the council. They asked me if i had anywhere to go for a few days or weeks. I only had my grandads place to stay. Then the council sent me to a hotel for 2 weeks in ilford. Then they give me a bedsit in my borough, Tower hamlets. Which was very small and had loads of stairs which i struggled to get up as i suffer from asthma.The council did not listen to my cries about being pregnant and suffering from asthma walking up the stairs. Then I lost my job just before i gave birth. I am currently suffering from depression and i see a therapist. On top of this the council has now placed me in a 1 bedroom flat out of London in Gillingham, Kent. Now i am all alone and suffering. I have letters from my doctor to the council stating im suffering from depression and i need to be around my family support.My families support is in Tower hamlets and I need their support right now. Last week, I was on ITV news telling people about my experience of being moved out of the borough. I am now making this petition for people to support me staying in my borough which i have always lived in and where my support is. I am currently doing a suitability review with the council to move back to tower hamlets. Hopefully this petition will help me.
