Getting a social worker when you are homeless
I have spina bifida plus psoriasis and also an Arnold chair malformation type 2. I am in a very scary predicament at present as I am living in a homeless house waiting on a new house for my wee family. They are Wayne and my gorgeous little girl called Adele who is 2 1/2 . My issue apart from having no permanent abode is how do I go about getting a social worker for myself as every time I ask they end up sending me out An OT which is fine for the house but even then they don't get it right. My finances are a bit of a complex issue it seems when you one thing they take it off the other which correct me if I am wrong doesn't actually help you at all. My head is all over the place with this and not knowing what to do. Please please tell me I am not going mad.
