    omg the council are a joke! i am so upset at the moment I can't believe it.

    I've posted before regarding my housing problem (will be homeless in 2 weeks, nowhere to go). anyway the council told me i am entitled to a scheme where they wil give me £1000 for a deposit for a flat then I can apply for housing benefit.

    so here i am viewing loads of flats ,getting a tenancy agreement sorted out but then my housing officer decides to ignore my calls for FOUR WHOLE DAYS, so i lost the flat i was interested in.

    I just made a complaint against him, which made him finally get in touch with me and he told me he was wrong, and shouldnt have referred me to this scheme in the first place!! wtf! so now here i am left with nothing, no flat, no deposit and he could have let me know four days ago instead of letting me waste what little money i have on travelling around london to find a flat when he KNEW all along i wasnt entitled to the money!

    Im actually fuming!!! he didnt even apologise!

    my mum is saying that i should threaten to take this further as he cant just offer me £1000 in writing then take it back because HE made a mistake??

    what do u think?

    Can't offer any real advice, but have you both been in touch with Shelter? Hopefully they can offer you some practical advice.
