  • Hi Neil

    I am very sorry to hear about your house - that must be very stressful, particularly as you continue to battle the effects of your stroke. You have mentioned money worries and instances of being taken advantage of financially quite a few times in your posts and I wonder if a trusted relative or friend would be able to talk through your finances with you and give you some advice on how to say 'No' to shysters? It is hard for us all to manage money, particularly after a brain injury, and sometimes we lose the ability to detect when we are being taken for a ride at our cost. Please remember "No!" is a complete sentence.

    As far as your move is concerned, I think you will benefit most from urgently speaking to one of CAB, your social worker or of course, Headway. They may be able to source emergency funding from your council or a charity. Alternatively, you could apply for a Budgeting Loan ( which is interest free over up to 104 weeks. Finally, could a family member or friend hire a box van and do the move for you in a day?

    I hope you get this sorted and that your stress levels reduce once you are settled. All the best.

  • thank you one thing i have learnt the hard way is advice given useless exceot cab have an uncle sorting council assisted living in wandsworth nearer my children and friends i am even looking forward to it

  • Sometimes things happen for a reason, we just don't realise it at the time, maybe you are meant to move to be nearer your family and to relieve you from the financial stress and hassle you've been under. Hopefully you will be able to get on with life rather than worrying about money and sharks! It's good to hear you are looking forward to it, hopefully it will turn out to be the answer to your prayers Neil, all the best x
