By the age of 24, I thought I would soon be able to move out of home and gain my independence.
However, huge changes to housing benefit for the under 35s being introduced in April 2019, mean I will be one of many young people who won't be given as much help with their rent.
Knowing this in advance means that I am fully aware that I can no longer afford to move out.
My Fixer's group are concerned that many young people don't realise that the changes are coming and how they could have a life-changing impact on them.
We have designed coasters to get the information out there and to encourage young people to start planning accordingly.
My Fixers team includes:
I would like to thanks the following people for supporting this Fix:
Kate Aspinwall from Newport City Homes
Julie Little from Gwent Welfare Reform Partnership (GWRP)
Samantha Howells and Gareth Jones at Charter Housing
Youth worker Jenny Roach
Me and my friends want young people to know that calories aren't the enemy!
