    What a disgrace that your left without any money coming in. 
    This is the 21st centry. Wr one of the richest in the world yet your left without help or money.
    Try asking 1 of your councillors for info.
    Also theres a group in birmingham who may know of help in your area their nu is 0121 728 7030 ask for Billy who is s very knowledgable lady.
    Also 0333 772 1931 have alot of info and would have a good chance if pointing you in the right direction in your area
    Good luck

    katho31 sorry to hear of awful situation you are now placed in due to ill health.  Misscleo has given some positive advice which I hope helps you.
    As well as this have you tried Macmillan?

    Hello @katho31. Have you looked into doing a full benefits check-up? Depending on your household circumstances you may be able to claim Universal Credit and go down the work capability route.

    Hi @katho31 - Welcome to the community. As Adrian suggests, try a benefits calculator.
