    Hello @liima - Welcome to the community. I am sorry to read about your housing difficulties, but hope the link Steve has given may help. From that link you will see that you can contact your local council directly, and also try Shelter for advice, as you are not receiving the help you need.
    Perhaps also look at housing associations such as Habinteg also mentioned in the above link. There are also others such as this: https://www.homegroup.org.uk/    & there may be different ones in your area.
    I hope you get help, & please let us know how you get on, thank you. :)

    Hi and welcome to the community

    Do you have a housing officer assigned to you with you being in temporary accomodation, they should be able to help you move to a more suitable property

    If you are band 2 then this should allow you to bid on suitable property though I would imagine at this time there isnt a lot of movement with housing and vacant properties.
    to your council or as suggested shelter
    Speak
