Gordon Henderson MP, Swale Borough Council
United Kingdom

A young working mother with 3 children of school age become homeless and lose all belongings after an accidental fire caused by faulty electrical equipment destroyed there life. She turns to the local authority Swale Borough Council for help in being re-homed as she was in private rental and has nowhere else to turn, unfortunately they refuse to help in re-homing leaving them struggling to live and carry on a normal life.

Below is documented link to the fire

Yet recently as reported in Kent Online it is reported that "Swale council agree to house up to 10 Syrian refugee families over five years says leader Cllr Andrew Bowles" If these people can be helped when they have no-one else to turn to then surely our own families should be able to expect the same help. Is this really the caring community side of Swale Borough Council they want us to judge them by ?

We, the undersigned, call on Swale Borough Council to help this young family get their life back, help them obtain the same rights of re-homing as the many refugees coming into our country.

We believe charity should begin at home and wish to show our support to this very needy family in getting their lives back online.
This family deserves help from the local council through no fault of there own, an accidental disaster hit them just after Christmas leaving them homeless and without belongings.

They have been turned down help by the Council to date, it has turned their back on this family, but is prepared to support refugees in the same situation from other countries first. This is very wrong and we ask you to give this family the home they need and their lives back.
