    Hi @althead, sorry to hear about your difficult situation. I would recommend that you call our free helpline on 0808 800 3333 (9AM-5pm Mon-Fri). @DebbieVoakes have you got any advice?

    Also, Shelter are helpful. My husband works for a housing charity that help people in y.our situation though it is particular to where we live. But he says get in touch with Shelter and they can guide you:


    Have you got access to phone and internet? if not, try library? Sorry, you prob know that but I had a problem once and totally forgot about library.

    But mostly, don't give up hope. This is a totally **** (cant swear here...but your post is so worthy of swearing on your behalf). but one day you'll be giving others advice as this will all be a far away memory. It just needs a step at a time. And do come on here for ranting and support xx
