    Hi forum. Just registered. Myself, my wife, and my dog had to leave our house at the end of last year. We sheltered at my parents house for a few months but have now moved into a campervan. We’ve been living in it now for about 4 or 5 months. Ideally we are looking for somewhere we can call home again but have been stripped of all savings and credit potential. Ive been working minimum wage jobs to cover costs, and soon will be moving into a farm to work and live if plans work out. Essentially however we would like to join or help form a self sustainable community in the UK. We are both hard workers but want freedom from the system like so many others. We have done the career slog and seen the light. My wife loves to garden, and I love to build things, and now we just want to be happy. We would like to meet similar if possible.

    Not expecting much but as a newcomer here I thought I’d outline our position and feelings.

    Kindest regards,

    Jason, Emily, and Max

    Hi Jason and family, I can’t actually help you I’m afraid but thought Id say hello anyway.

    I’m sorry to hear that you’ve lost everything, times are hard for lots of people. I hope the farm situation comes off, that will be a great relief if it works out I’m sure.

    I was living in a van for 5 years so have a idea how things are for you.

    There are various communities in the UK but of course having no capital is a big drawback.

    There’s a UK site you could try – lowimpact.org

    Hope things improve for you,

    Marc
