Im really struggling with bedroom tax taking £30 a week out of my ESA
Im new to this site and was interested to read comments from similar situations that help me to understand my ESA payments. Im really struggling with bedroom tax taking £30 a week out of my ESA and was looking for a full time job to get a decent income but employers don't want to know if Im honest about my health issues. I'm also concerned about coping full time with the time I spend in hospitals but part time I'll be no better off so I can't take it easy to start with. Im unable to afford or physically face packing up and leaving my home of the past 25 years and need to remain near to my elderly father plus theres no 1 bed homes in the area apart from the old folks home so downsizings near impossible. The councils already tried to find me a place and no success. The first year I had DHP towards my rent but the council expected me to get over my permanent condition within the year to return to work.and said I couldnt apply again for further help. Any advice welcome!
