How to leave with no money

How do I leave the marital home with 3 kids and move to the other end of the country - I have no job, no house and £260 total in the whole world (that’s probably not enough for train tickets to the destination). I also don’t have a car or drivers license.
My husband is unhappy with the marriage and left. I do not wish to remain here and want to move back to my hometown and family.
He has not made it clear if he intends to return or how I am to support the family now. I currently don’t work due to my teenager being suspected asd / self harm/ suicidal thoughts on waiting list for Camhs a year now.
If I did work it would likely be for min wage. Area I want to return to is UC system.
It sounds impossible. Should I just remain and see if husband returns?

If he has spanned off without a word about money, I suggest you contact CMS for maintenance, and jobcentre/tax credits to get some money coming in.

And consider whether you want him to come back. The self indulgent cock.

Is the house owned, rented, HA or what?

I would speak to the CAB for advice about money. Do you already get housing benefit or is it a joint home that would be sold?

Would moving now affect cahms wait?

Yes Home is joint owned.
The area I want to move to has a far shorter wait list for Camhs!

Apply for PIP or universal credit now your family circumstances have changed, set up a separate bank account in your own name. Contact citizens advice to see what you're entitled to

I already have my own separate bank account - we have never had a joint account. I don’t have any access to money he earns and never have. He doesn’t give me money but he does usually pay the mortgage and bills. I use child allowance for things the children need and Childrens tax credits for food shopping and he would normally do some food shopping too.

I have also contributed £20k to the mortgage with money I inherited from a family member that passed away.
I get £37 a week Childrens tax credit.
