Hi all 

Hope your well.
I really need help.
Does anyone know if social services 
Can help with emergency housing 
Even if you have a place to go but it's not safe.
Thank you

    Hi,

    It's unlikely they will help with this. Why aren't you safe?

    Hello and and yes they can but it depends upon the severity of your current living situation, your needs and age.
    I myself have recently been moved in to the care of social services due to my high risk and vulnerability of living with my parent but as I am under 18 and disabled it was straightforward and quick.

    Hi @hass, how are you today? 

    Sorry to hear about your current situation. Are you safe at the moment and free from the harassment?

    If the place where you live isn't in the best state, have you tried contacting your housing provider about the issue?

    Hi,

    That would have been because you are under 18. When you're an adult, it's a totally different story.

    Please explain, @hass. Sorry if I'm being a bit dim here.
    Is there any point in carrying on... Life, debate, trying to stay positive? I'm not quite sure what you are referring to?

    @hass - perhaps you should have told your solicitor about the abuse you've suffered from your family, then she might have understood that better. There will be a way through this. Please talk at any time to us here; there's usually someone about. Life is important, & there will be positive things. Take care.

    Hi @hass, really sorry to hear this... Of course I don't know your circumstances but I can tell you that ten years ago I managed to move away from the home I shared with a family member who had been abusive towards me for many years. If I hadn't moved away I would have either gone mad or worse. It turned out to be the best thing I ever did. I found myself again, after being brow-beaten for so long.
    At the time, I was assisted by the Council in finding me another flat. 

    It may depend on how old you are and what your circumstances are, as to who could help you. Please explore other avenues. I thought I would never get away but if I could do it, I hope you can too. And once you do, you'll feel very differently. Freedom from abusive people is priceless. I wish I could help you more. I wish you all the best.

    Hi @hass :) I'm also sorry to hear that you're still struggling with your housing situation, and that you're feeling so low. I've sent you an email, so please do give that a read when you get a moment, and let us know if there's anything else we can do to help.
