Not sure why you keep talking about someone I have never met, the woman I love I have met and spent time with in person. Anyhow.

I have found a Charity that offers supported housing for the disabled in Spain which any EU Resident is eligible for providing the relevant evidence of disability is provided, not sure where the funding comes from, think its the EU Disability Action Group maybe.

Thanks for all your help, you have all been so kind and supportive.

The wonder of BE strikes again

let us all know how things work out and where you are, I am sure if conditions were better in Spain there would be more disabled people - and that wouldnt just be pure physical living in a wheelchair, there are other disabilities as well that sometimes cannot be seen

Probably based on your post in the British forum in March 2012 where you stated that you had not yet met, she and her sister had been refused visitor visas to the UK and that you had little money, no savings and could not work because of disability. You also stated that your disabilities meant that you could not travel.

Call me a cynic.

That kind of information could be very valuable to other disabled people - can you please share the details with the forum? You found BE when you wanted help, others may do the same and you could have just the info they are looking for

Are you all for real!!! That was an oxymoron about how you were all so helpful and friendly!! All I wanted to know is if there was a Charity or something that offered help with accomodation for a disabled person living in another EU State, my partner would work and not take any money from anyone. Now you want information that I have found after most of you have been extremely rude, unhelpful, insulting - even insinuating my partner just wanted a UK Visa!! Unbelievable!!!

If you take the trouble to go back and read your posts in the UK forum as well as here you will seen that actually a lot of posters have given you relevant information, it may not be the information you wanted, but thats because what you were seeking isn't possible. There is no welfare state provision to help you and your new partner live in Spain.

However, don't you think that as you have found an answer to your problem it would be only fair to post it so that when the next disabled person wishing to move to Spain happens across the forum they can benefit from your research? That's how discussion forums work - by sharing information. Or are you too mean spirited to share your good fortune?

and you came on here to gain free information from the kindly people of BE, some of whom have had other contact with you - where you have told a different story about many things.

probably none of us here, for our self protection, tell 100% the truth, but it would appear that for most the stories are the same giving a consistancy. And yet in this post you have started telling another different story to that already posted on this thread.

regrettably you have led people here up the garden path about most things and I firmly believe that you do not have any contact with a Disabled Charity, although you have put up the hopes of not only those posting here but also the many many people who just look in but don't take part.
If I am wrong I would like you to be honest and post the truthful details to assist people in the same, or worse, situation as yourself, people who through no fault of their own are in need of help and support.

As I don't think you will fess up I therefore must report you under article 4 of the Site Rules for trolling, making false statements and posts that are started with the sole intent of upsetting or antagonizing other members.

Yes and I can do the same with all of the rude and upsetting comments made by others here too. I could copy and paste them to the moderator no problem.

Please don't bother copying and pasting posts, we can read them for ourselves. However if you feel any are offensive, feel free to report them - thats the blue button with an exclamation mark on it.

Why are you so rude? I was responding to a post and thats what the quote button is for.

I will.

Why would I post to people who have not helped me and just been rude. I will share this information with people who have not been rude to me.

You ask questions, people give their time to reply, you don't like the answers so get aggressive.

Mods - time to call a halt?
