complicated housing issue
hi, I'm Jean,new to all this but would welcome some help/advise regarding a complicated housing issue. My partner Tim is disabled on full pip, we put into our local council several years ago for a bungalow, Tim can have a bungalow in our local area but despite me being his fiancee and full time carer, i'm not allowed to move in with him because i am too young, we've been offered bungalows in loads of other areas but the trouble is they are miles away from , his mum and dad whom i also care for and his doctor whom he has a good relationship with, i myself tick all the local criteria boxes for a bungalow in our local area, except for the age thing, we have our local mp and our local shelter people looking into it, but we've been "fighting" this for near on a year now and have got no where, we recently submitted a new letter from the doctor because Tim's walking is becoming more slow and painful, but they have not even acknowledged it, stuck and very frustrated, not sure which other way to turn, i, myself, have put it to them that they are breaking the law as in age discrimination which is putting a disabled person at an unfair disadvantage, but it's all like water off a ducks back to them, we have missed out on nearly 20 properties locally because of this stupidity .......
