Unsure, confused and can't cope.
I have LCWRA and Pip standard daily living, I am currently in supported living for my mental health and I am looking to move into a council property. No one at the council or my support workers have told me what I am entitled to i.e housing benefit and googling it is just exhausting. I am quite terrified, I have certain conditions which means moving into a house of multiple occupation this is not an option for me at all, as being with strangers especially men triggers a lot.
I have been told on one hand I do not have the housing benefit cap because of my PIP and LCWRA but have been told I do have the cap.
I am 24, the place I am in is paid for by housing benefit, it is not owned by the council as it's a charity run place and all I want to know is if I have the benefit cap and no one, not even my housing officer can give me a straight answer.
The property I am looking at right now is 70 pound a week, all I want is a straight answer so please may someone help or send me in the right direction before I lose my mind? Thank you for any help!
