Discretionary Housing Support

Hey y’all!
pleased as punch to announce that I’ve now been allocated (Removed by moderator, please do not share personal addresses) a brand new build property from link housing,looking for some help urgently, to apply for a discretionary housing payment to cover the deposit and secure the property, which i couldn’t stress enough, the need to relocate!
The property should have been ready by now, but government restrictions due to the pandemic have repeatedly caused the building to be delayed twice (April and June), which is causing me to lose the willpower! 
I could also benefit from support to fill in a housing benefit from for the Edinburgh area, as I am in receipt of it right now for this hazardous property that I’m existing in, existing not living, and waiting in desperation to move on from!
can anyone help?

    Glad you've found somewhere, I just wanted to let you know that I've removed the address details from your post as we don't allow that personal information on the community.
