    Hi @stacenjay, thank you for sharing this with us.

    I'm so sorry to hear about your circumstances- CRPS is such a debilitating condition, and it sounds as though your temporary housing isn't anywhere near as accessible as it should be. 

    Unfortunately we're not housing specialists and so we cannot directly assist, however I'd advise giving our helpline team a call on 0808 800 3333, to see if they can offer any guidance. Alternatively, the charity Shelter also have a helpline that may be worth contacting, too: 0808 800 4444.
    Our helpline is open every day of the year:
    • 8am - 8pm on weekdays
    • 9am - 5pm on weekends
    You should use this line if:
    • You have nowhere to sleep, or might be homeless soon
    • You have somewhere to sleep, but nowhere to call home
    • You are/could be at risk of harm
    • You feel very overwhelmed about your housing situation
