Can the LA leave my son without appropriate housing, going against his social care assessment?
Can anyone help me urgently with a concern of housing. My sons who has Aspergers currently has support and both this and the tenancy is only provided on a weekly basis as he was due to move yesterday after 6 month battle at his current supported living placement breaking down because of a 2 year battle with an aggressive tenant. He was offered another property but the day due to move he had another flat offered in same building. My son has to purchase everything for this flat as it’s a building site shell ( not new build) it’s just stripped bear. The other flat originally offered is ready to move into but has a wet room which he is told he is not entitled to have dispute mobility issues since birth. The OT said a bath board will suffice but Josh has autism and won’t cope. These are only 2 flats available in local authority and there are no suitable private rented properties. He has to pay bedroom tax too of approx £50 per month he’s told out of his disability benefit as it’s 2 bedroom again nothing else offered. He was happy to do this but having to carpet fully furnish with white goods as well as everything else in a pandemic with no notice when he’s at risk where he is, is too much and It’s such a mess. He has everything packed up and I’m beside myself with worry as he’s in supported living without effective support in place as it’s broken down. His assessed needs are not met Social worker aware MP trying to push but we are hitting a brick wall and Josh is just stuck in the middle begetting more unwell. It’s a nightmare. Does anyone know how I can resolve this urgently please.
