    The post was in a different category @janer1967, which I think is what mikehughescq was referring to. 

    I'm sorry that you don't feel safe in your current housing @Cjnutter, and that this is affecting you and your children's mental health and wellbeing. 

    I'm not 100% sure what to suggest in terms of how to demonstrate that you need to be a higher priority for being re-housed. I hope that another member with some personal experience will be able to advise you soon.

    Have you had a needs assessment from your local authority? 

    To help you to cope in the meantime, are you or your sons receiving any mental health support? 

    As you've mentioned some domestic abuse and stalking, I also just wanted to check whether this is something that's ongoing, and whether you're currently safe from the perpetrator/s? I'm really sorry that you went through this, and can imagine that being in the same house could be difficult.
