Struggling to find affordable homes

Mikeb2292 Community member Posts: 6 Listener
Hello everyone! Let me give you some context before the question. I am a 30 year old man who has arthritis on his left hip, trochanteric bursitis on the same hip and a hip replacement, dyslexia, dyspraxia, add and possible autism (waiting for assessment).

I have recently found myself single and have had to move back to my parents. I have a makeshift room but the room has mold, freezing and extremely say this is unsuitable to me due to pain is underselling it. 

I've tried to find affordable housing for myself but I do not have access to public funds. I only earn £1200 a month and can't get any benefits, I lose at least half of my wages in child support, travel to work and to help my parents with electricity bills as I need a heater on at most times.

Does anyone know anywhere or anyone who could help in my situation?
