Hi im hoping someone here can help me and my partner are splitting up after 12 years, we are staying friends which makes everything complicated. I suffer from depression and anxiety and struggle to make phone calls, we have been to the council for help on the housing situation and he has terminated his joint tenancy, i now have to apply to stay in my home. I know I need to claim benefits in my own right but he will be living in the house until he can sort accommodation for himself and his 18 year old son. I have been told to contact welfare rights to help me but the phone is always engaged when my ex tries them. I do rely on him to arrange things for me but can’t keep doing so. Is there any other organisations that can help me? My anxiety is getting worse and I don’t even want to leave the house I don’t know where to turn. I have 2 children under 16 and 1 at 18 my ex partner and I have no children together but he has brought them up. I’m sorry if my question isnt clear but everything is jumbled at the moment and i honestly can’t cope.
