About to become homeless.

I'm going to lose my home soon, I'm a wheelchair user. Not getting the feeling that housing needs are remotely interested. Saw CAB, GP, Women's Aid, Community Advisor, only Women's Aid offering practical help. Any ideas please?

    Hi Violet
    Sorry to hear you're going to lose your home soon.

    I don't know where you live,  but here in Fife, Scotland there is a Charity called "Disabled Persons Housing Service"
    Can you look online and see if there is similar where you live. 

    Do you have your name on your Council Housing List?  The Council should have Homeless Officers who should be able to help.

    I do hope you get somewhere nice soon.

    Hi @Viclet this must be so worrying, you can call the Scope helpline on 0808 800 3333 to speak to an advisor who could offer information and support.  They are a wonderful team and I hope you can get sorted.
