    Hi,

    It's not the easy to move house these days, especially if you're claiming benefits. I note that genesis is a housing association, are you able to get a house swap with another person? This maybe an option.

    Otherwise moving area to a different local council may not be possible with a different housing association because mostly you need a local connection to that area.

    Privately renting maybe an option but this is extremely difficult if you're claiming benefits because the majority of landlords won't accept those that claim benefits and those that will, will most likely ask for a guarantor.
