    Hi, just looking for a little advice really, basically ive left the army medical grounds struggled to get a roof over my head however due to my sons birth finally got somewhere, its been a mental rollercoaster to say the least, leading to a relationship brakedown, I’m now homeless again & just need a home basically I work full time have my son 50/50 with his mum, ive left everything too her so she didnt move down south with him.. i get dads get really bad stigma & im doing my very best by him, its been this way for almost 6 months, ive still got nowhere with a home for me & little man.. just feel like a sorry excuse of a father, any advice would be great.

    You are working full time, that’s not a sorry excuse for anything.

    Have you contacted the British Legion? Can they help you find a home?

    Just try to go to your local Citizen Advice Bureau and They should be able to tell You what Your options are or where you can look for help. You can also go to your local council asking for help.

    Once You working did you tried to rent a room from private lanlords?
