    Hello @jilly4withtigger Pleased to meet you welcome. Sorry what you are going through.

    Please can I ask have you been in touch with your local council office housing for any advice and information.

    I know there is a practical support and information on the forum which has housing and independent living.  Which may help for advice plus anything else.

    Understand the situation.

    Take care

    @Jilly4withTigger welcome to the forum.

    Rather than asking you a lot of questions  give the helpline a call, they will be able to go through your circumstances with you and go through your options with you. A lot will depend on your tenancy type, landlord and what stage in the eviction process you are at.

    The number is 0808 800 3000 and is free to call.

    As an individual I stood alone.
    As a member of a group I did things.
    As part of a community I helped to create change!

    Hi @Jilly4withTigger

    Welcome to the community, sorry to read of the difficult circumstances you are in with your housing.

    You have already been given some good advice. If you do want to contact the Scope Helpline and email is easier for you the address is helpline@scope.org.uk Often the Scope Helpline will signpost people with housing issues to Shelter for specialist advice: https://england.shelter.org.uk/get_help/helpline

    Do unsure that the local authority housing officer for your area is aware of your situation.

    You may also wish to seek advice/support from the MS Society: https://www.mssociety.org.uk/care-and-support#

    Best Wishes
    Jean
