I have three boys,  two them are Autistic and I have been living In a two bedroom flat . It’s temporary accommodation by the council. I have been bidding for over three years. I have done everything to get the council attention but to no avail. I am presently waiting for O/T assessment. Please any advice

    Sadly not, there are many many families needing housing and no housing avaliable for many of them, we often read about people who have been in your situation for 7 or even 10 years. Maybe the OT assessment will help but please don't rely on it.
    Good luck
    Be extra nice to new members.

    Hi as above social housing is in short supply more in some areas than others and it seems if you have a roof over your head you are lower down the list than those who are homeless which is understandable 

    Hopefully the ot can make recommendations in your favour to council
