Being made homeless
Me and my daughter are being made homeless on the 11th off March.
My daughter is a Looked after child which means another local authority share parental rights.
We left foster care on November 2017. We moved into a house when a Moving Out Off Care company took on the tenencey agreement and now there telling us to leave which is okay for them to do so as there the ones who are renting the property.
. We were asked if we wanted to take on the tenency but my daughter has complex needs and the house is unsuitable. My daughter cant walk or talk due to a chromosome microduplication.
So we went to housing Advice and they basically just said to look for private housng or husing occassions until the end off the 56 days. But renting privately is too expensive and hardly any take benefits.
If i cant find anywhere ill have to declare myself homeless on the 11th off March. Then they'll put us in a B&B and we could be there months.
My daughters social worker also contacted them and I won't be high priority for housing.
I just don't don't what to do, I'm struggling finding anywhere. I'm terrified about living in a B&B as I won't be able to bath my daughter safely and I don't know how I'd be able too cook and watch her safety. Her mental and kearlear age is that off a 4 to 8 months old so she has no sense off danger what so ever. 😭😭😭
I don't know what else I can do.
