Justice for a forgotten hero

Thor Taylor is a disabled soldier who set a precedent in 1989 by being first to lose a limb and remain in service after a fight to prove his worth. He suffers from a number of long term health issues relating to his active service. On the 8th June 2009 he was served with a notice to quit his home as he can no longer work or afford the inflated private rent. Local Government agencies such as housing and social services have proved to be uncaring and have shown little or no regard for the 'covenant' between this soldier and his country. Thor is a disabled soldier and he and his family (including young children) face homelessness and adversity every day for help with basic needs. Thor is even forced to sleep on the floor. Despite having registered under his local Choice Based Lettings scheme, this is not being fairly applied and applicants of lower priority are being successfully rehoused ahead of Thor and his family. We the undersigned require that Thor and his family be rehoused immediately to meet his needs as a disabled war pensioner and that an apology and explanation as to why this was allowed to happen be issued by the relevant agencies involved.
