On our knees financially need to move due to housing crisis.

My name is Jo and I’m married to Mike who is a web designer, unfortunately his salary has gone down by two thirds over the years and we are now stuck in a very expensive let in Kingston Upon Thames on housing benefit which we can’t sustain. We are looking to rent of perhaps one day buy outside London and we are looking at any cities which are lovely but not London. We are looking for a city with good schools, low crime, sociable and which doesn’t feel too different from London. We like Oxford and Bedfordshire but they are both two expensive for us. We have really hit the housing crisis with redundancy that’s hit us both. We have a 14 year old son whose been really traumatised because we lost our beautiful home in Bedfordshire. I’m particularly keen to hear from mums in Sheffield, Manchester and Kingston where I live now.
