Hi, I’m new to this forum and really need help and advice.
So my son of 12 lost his mum the cancer Feb last year, it was agreed that he would live with his step dad and sister going forward. Things did not work out so 8 weeks ago we moved him in with me and my partner.
Long story – short. In the meantime I’ve been made redundant, can’t get a job as there simply isn’t any about and even if I could couldn’t take it because I have to be at home for my son, home school him etc…
Now to too it off, my partner has decided bits not working and when things with covid-19 clear wants us to sell our house and separate.
So my question is really. What help can I expect from the government and would I be able to rent somewhere and survive indefinitely until I can get back on my feet? Any advice would be greatly appreciated.
