Mother of 10 living in three-bed council home demands TWO houses next door to each other 'because we need more room'



By Daily Mail Reporter
Last updated at 12:04 AM on 1st September 2010

A mother who lives in a three-bedroomed house with ten children and her partner has called for officials to give her two adjoining homes to accommodate her large family.

Donna Harrison said she has been asking social landlord Incommunities to allocate her family a bigger house for five years.

In response, the organisation has said it has a 'very limited' supply of homes with four bedrooms or more, several of which she has refused to move into.

Miss Harrison, from Bradford, moved into her home six years ago with five of the children and has since had another child.

She also cares for three other children, as well as her partner's daughter.

Tight fit: Fabian Bland and his partner Donna Harrison... and their ten children (back row) Daniel, 14, (with baby Fabian), Sarah, 14, Chloe, 13, Aaron, 12, Megan, 12, and (front row) Fabienne, four, Morgan, seven, Jack, nine, and Kieron, eight

The 34-year-old, who shares a bedroom with a son, daughter and partner, said: 'I can't cope, there's no room in the house for the kids.

'I have got four girls in one box room. I have had to put a partition up in one bedroom so we don't have boys and girls sharing together.

'They are always fighting over the bathroom.

'We have taken on three extra kids and no-one's given us any help. Nobody helps at all and I don't get anything for free, not even free school meals.

'I have put my name down for a few places. When people have got ten kids they should knock two houses through for them.'

Her partner Fabian Bland, 41, a delivery driver, said: 'When the children have their friends round it's like a kindergarten in here.'

Miss Harrison was offered a choice of four four-bedroom Incommunities homes in 2008, all of which she turned down saying they were not big enough.

She was offered a large private sector property through Incommunities' guarantee scheme, which she refused.

An Incommunities spokesman said: 'Since the stock transfer of homes from Bradford Council in 2003, Incommunities has not carried out any conversions of two or more homes into one to accommodate the needs of a larger family with children.

'Such a scheme would be dependent on two large adjoining homes both being available at the same time and also funding considerations.

'We are actively working with the tenant and other agencies to help best meet the family's individual housing needs. Unfortunately, larger family-sized homes of four bed and more are very limited.

'We always advise people looking for rented family-sized accommodation to be flexible in terms of the location and also consider other housing providers.'

Bradford Council housing officer Andy Bebbington said: 'We have been to visit the tenant to offer advice and support but there is a shortage of large social housing properties. We are taking steps to address this problem in the long term.'

She's pretty enough to be a British stripper.

My grandmother had ten kids in one house with one bedroom. Get used to it. You decided to have them, you get to take care of them not the government.

Its almost like his parents wanted him to grow up to live in a tiny house with a skank and brood of illegitimate children, most of whom are not his.

I hope the local housing department agrees to find her a bigger house if she gets spayed and stops adopting kids.

Seems like traditional marriage isn't in their plan either!

White British Trash!!

If you can't FEED EM or HOUSE THEM........THEN DON'T BREED THEM!!!

Hey lady, they know what causes pregnancy now-you might want to look into ways to prevent it. And maybe take a hint from Monty Python and sell a few for medical experiments. You know, instead of demanding you get TWO free fucking houses. Idiot.

7 million Britons 'live in jobless households where no one works'

Up to 7 million Britons are living in 'jobless' households where nobody whorks, according to latest figures.

Four million UK households reportedly contain no one who is currently in employment - meaning 7 million under-65-year-olds are currently living with no experience of employment.

148,000 have been added to the figures in the last year alone, with 700,000 joining the total since 1998 - a 22 per cent increase.

Employment Minister Chris Grayling said: ‘These figures are a further indictment of how the current system is failing families and are a shocking reflection of the scale of worklessness across the UK that the Government has inherited.

‘Some areas of Britain are suffering from inter-generational worklessness, which is why we must act now to ensure that children living in workless households are not left behind like their parents have been.’

The findings, produced by the Office for National Statistics, show that 3.9million households, in which 5.4million adults live, are without a job of any description.

Ministers are expected to introduce a ‘Work Programme’ next year, designed to force anyone without a job to make a daily effort to find employment, or risk losing their benefits.

Condoms? I think at this point sterilization is warranted.

Hopefully Cameron does something about this. Get those fucking people off of the dole and let them starve if they don't want to work.

Why would you take on 3 kids that are not yours if you don't have enough room currently? I have some sympathy since the man is working, but reality is you need make due and not take on responsibility you can't handle. It seems they are getting by currently.

It goes way beyond laziness. The modern culture that promotes this and other behaviors has to change as well.

I'm covertly sending them over in their hundreds, by way of one-way trips to Mexico courtesy of The Sun Newspaper coupons.


If they then choose to try and cross the border, disguised with Sombreros, that's your problem.

Holy shit those are some ugly kids.

Funny. Not. They 'take care of' 3 children? How about "I'm sorry, I can no longer take care of them"? This is not an issue for anyone else to deal with, this is an issue they created. They need to fix it.



I am 1 of 11 children. The most we had in our house was 8.
Our house:
first floor had the master bedroom, parlor, living room, dining room, kitchen, the only full bath, laundry/utility room, and pantry/coat room.
second floor had the white bedroom(painted white, biggest), the brown bedroom(finished in wood planks, medium), the walled-off-ex-playroom pink bedroom(microscopic, 4' ceiling), and a living room that was curtained off to be a bedroom, and a half bathroom.

It wasn't bad at all: The master bedroom was the youngest's(and parents). The white room was the girls or boys room, whichever there were more of at the time. The brown room was for the other gender. The pink room was for the oldest, whichever gender. The curtained off living room got the third youngest.

From the OP:
Boy = 14
Boy = 12
Boy = 9
Boy = 7
Boy = 1
Girl = 14
Girl = 13
Girl = 12
Girl = 8
Girl = 4

My parents would have put the girls 14/13/12/4 in the white room. The oldest boy 14 in the pink room. The other boys 12/9/7 would have gone in the brown room. The girl 8 would have gone in the curtained off living room, while the youngest stayed in the master bedroom.

Some shuffling every year or so would need to happen because the oldest are so close in age, but that's about it. Would I have been spoiled if each and every one of us got our own room? Maybe, maybe not, but there wasn't a need for an honest to goodness 10 bed / 5 bath house. I'm willing to bet that she doesn't work, does not send the kids to friends to play, or does not even make them play outside.

Suck it up bitch, which is what you should've done more than a few times.

This is why I have respect for the Duggar family. Yeah, they might be a little out there, but they don't demand help (people help because they want to), and most importantly, they don't bitch and moan when the free shit isn't nice enough.

If your lifestyle can support a large family, more power to you. If you have to rely on the government handouts, you have no room to complain, and in fact it should be the other way around. The government should put these people on billboards saying "Don't do this shit".

There is not enough facepalm in the entire universe to equal the amount of facepalm needed for that. Add 'Dark Pacepalm' if you want...it's still not enough.
