I work full time but I also pay child care for my daughter and all my bills my credits also not great because my ex was a gambling addict and took loads of wonga loans out over the computer in my name what are my options here?

If he left 3 years ago your credit won't be too bad by now.

Have you spoken to the CAB? They are brilliant. Does your work offer flexi hours so you can take your daughter out of her childcare for a bit?

I understand the house is in her name but have you explained to her you cant move out without a deposit for somewhere new. She might offer to pay the full bills until you have the £700 saved even if its just to get rid of you. Also CAB is a good starting point.

Speak to your local council. Some local authorities have a scheme whereby they lend you the deposit for a private let which you then pay back over a period of time.
Then you need to apply for housing benefit.
Also go to CAB, ask them to do a full benefit check.
