    Hi Singlemumneedshelp.  If you go to social services they will help you. I was evicted from my house and I went to social services and they they rung my council and straightaway I was accommodated

    I know many people are scared of approaching social services but in your situation they will help you because you didn’t do anything bad to your children

    And your council will put you in Band A for emergency accommodation and if not available at that moment they will put you and your children in temporary accommodation whilst waiting for a house
