    i am a single mum of a 22 months old girl. In January I left my abusive husband in the middle of the night and been living with a friend since.

    I only work 3 days a week (11k salary) and have to send my daughter to nursery during that time. I am not British and have only been in the UK since 2 1/2 years. Applied for universal credit, but haven’t heard back from them.

    Cant live with my friend for much longer, so really in need for my own place. Council only accepts people who have been in the bourough for 5 years. Estate agents don’t accept people with income below 20k+.

    Really don’t know what to do and where to go 🙁

    Anyone been in a similar situation or has any tips for me?

    Thanks to everyone that answeres! 🙂

    Call Women’s Aid and see if you can get into a refuge.  WA will be able to advise you.

    Good luck
