Havent Got A Bl**dy Clue

 My friend has been putting her mother in law up in her living room of her one bedroom flat as the mother law had become homeless just before March. This was not easy as you can imagine as 3 people in a one bedroom flat. Very stress full for everyone.
The mother in law had become homeless through no fault of her own and is a pensioner. Unfortunately could not use my friends address due to her personal circumstances and situation.

The mother in law flew to Australia for 2 week to visit her daughter in Australia all expenses paid just before corona virus and lockdown. She has been trying to get back to England ever since but the fact she has no address she can put on the form whilst self isolating on her return has prevented her. 

We are in Lockdown and my friend is fretting because the mother in law has this bright idea she will try and return on the 16/11/20. We are trying to advise this would not be possible due to other countries Lockdowns and terrorist alerts. 

She has no address is officially homeless and if she does return the likely hood of being rehoused at this moment in time is very unlikely.

Any advice :neutral:

    I'm not sure what kind of advice you seek tbh.

    Shes under the illusion she will be able to come back to England on the 16/11/20. But I cant see that being possible due to corona virus and borders closing

    I'm sorry that we haven't been able to come up with an answer for you @charlie79, it seems like quite a complex situation. Do you have any updates?

    Are they concerned about her coming back and passing it on to her room mates? 

    Sounds really hard. Who is sh with in Australia?

    Could she report her homelessness to the council? My husband works in a first stop for homeless people and her situation is typical of some of hia client. S
