A pregnant woman has said she's "disgusted" she could be made homeless just weeks before her due date after being asked to leave her current home.

Amy Beardwood, 27, said she's been crying "every day" after being given three weeks to leave the Cobalt Housing Association home in Norris Green, Liverpool.

She had originally moved out of another social accommodation to look after her disabled brother after her nan died of Covid-19 in March 2021, Liverpool Echo reports.

But once Amy found out she was pregnant and unable to give her brother – who has curvature of the spine, mobility issues along with ADHD and autism – the care he needed, it was decided he would be placed in supported living.

Amy says once her brother moved out in July, Cobalt Housing began asking her to leave the property.

The housing association ended the tenancy on October 10 due to Amy's name not being on tenancy, and have given her three weeks to leave.

She said: "After my nan died of covid I moved in to care for my brother, but once I found out I was pregnant and wouldn't be able to take care of his care needs, the decision was made he would move into supported living.

"Now Cobalt are telling me to leave and are making me homeless at 34 weeks heavily pregnant heading into winter."

Amy, who suffers from depression, said she has been left 'crying everyday' and 'massively stressed' due to the situation.

She has contacted Liverpool City Council, Cobalt Housing and Knowsley Council for help but said she has been 'running into walls' trying to get answers.

She said: "The whole situation has left me so stressed, which is not what I need being 34 weeks pregnant.

"I think it's disgusting that they're leaving a pregnant woman homeless during winter.

"I have now been told I could end up in early labour due to all the stress, I have nowhere else to turn. and nobody is helping me.

A spokesperson for Cobalt Housing Association said: "We are aware of this complex case, and are working with all parties involved to support Mrs Beardwood in every way we can to ensure the best outcome for her."

Amy claims she has been 'left to struggle' by Liverpool City Council and Knowsley Council housing options, as the officers have left her with no information or help.

A spokesperson for Liverpool City Council said: “Housing officers are looking into this case to find suitable alternative accommodation for the individual concerned.”

A spokesperson from Knowsley Council said: "We were contacted by this lady in September. Under homelessness law, an individual can only have one active homelessness application.

"As she had already made a homelessness application through Liverpool City Council and is also currently a Liverpool resident, we advised her that she needed to continue to engage with the City Council.”

Amy says she is worried if the councils do not intervene she will have nowhere else to go.

She said: "I don't really have any family that can help and I'm not working at the moment so I literally have nowhere to go.

"I will end up on the streets. How can they do this to people?"
