Hun god love you sending you big hugs... dont panic ...LOADS YOU CAN DO !! plenty of things..

First things first get up the council and explain that you are homeless and need a place ASAP. see what ure options are. Ask them for a Home Options Interview

Then get onto the job centre www.jobcentreplus.co.uk and find the number to claim income support so u have ure own money

As soon as you know what ure options are with the council you can decide where to go from there. Anything else you need to know just ask !! xxxx

You can also privately rent and the council will give you housing benefit and even help you pay the deposit. Its called housing allowance now and is calculated depending on your needs for example how many children you have, how many rooms you will need etc.

Example if its only you and your daughter and you privately rent a four bedroom house they will only pay benefit to your needs because really you only need a max of two bedrooms so they will asses you based on the average cost of a two bedroom.

You will also be entitled to income support and a higher level of tax credits as a single parent.

hiya

in your situation it may also be worth getting in touch with any local women's refuge. They are usually really helpful, regardless of the reason you want out - they may be help to offer you somewhere short term while you get yourself sorted.
