  • Me and My Girlfriend

    Me and my girlfriend have been going through a tough time lately with out families, we can't take this no more, I'm 20 and she's 18 we've been together a while now and our parents are becoming very controlling and won't accept us being together. It's drove us totally insane and led to a few homeless nights on the streets, we have around £400 saved between us and need to get away as soon as possible, how can we do this and get by even if it's a struggle?

    RE: Me and My Girlfriend

    Hi there,

    Thanks for reaching out tonight and sharing your story with us. It sounds like you and your girlfriend are going through a lot right now. It was smart of you to reach out for some guidance and support. Let's see how we can help you put together a plan to be safe and to be successful.

    It can be really difficult to be homeless and to spend a night on the street. We’re not sure where you are, but you can check out to see if there are places where you can stay around your area. Another good resource to check out is They have resources for cheaper apartments and housing.

    Sometimes it can be helpful to think of people (friends or other family members) who you might be able to stay with while you figure out how to get a place of your own. It certainly sounds like a stressful time for you both, so it is smart of you to try to put together a plan.
