Hi all 

Hope your well.
I really need help.
Does anyone know if social services 
Can help with emergency housing 
Even if you have a place to go but it's not safe.
Thank you

    Hi,

    It's unlikely they will help with this. Why aren't you safe?

    Hello and and yes they can but it depends upon the severity of your current living situation, your needs and age.
    I myself have recently been moved in to the care of social services due to my high risk and vulnerability of living with my parent but as I am under 18 and disabled it was straightforward and quick.

    I'm over 40 I've been up and down da country  since lockdown 
    I ended up at my parents the same place I left many yrs ago due to abuse  
    My current property is not safe due to disrepair and harrassment  hence  

    I have multiple hralth problems  both physical and mental 
    I'm sick of government not talking housing seriously 
    Its everthing from health to wealth safety and security  bad housing  recks  life's

    Hi @hass, how are you today? 

    Sorry to hear about your current situation. Are you safe at the moment and free from the harassment?

    If the place where you live isn't in the best state, have you tried contacting your housing provider about the issue?

    Hi sorry to hear about your situation, if you are at risk then contact your local council housing dept

    If you current priperty is private rent then discuss issues with provider 

    Also maybe contact shelter organisation who may be able to help

    Hi,

    That would have been because you are under 18. When you're an adult, it's a totally different story.
