Hi
Im wondering if anyone could offer any advice me amd my kids moved in with my partner not long ago to a whole new area. Things arent working out and the relationship has gone bad so he has asked us to leave immediately i have no family or friends in the area and no money for deposit and rent on place as have only just moved in here. Is there anywhere that can help me
Any advice would be really appreciated
Tia

Phone shelter, ask him to write you a letter giving you notice to leave. Go to the local council and present yourself as homeless.

thanks

Can your family help you to move back closer to them?

I'm pretty sure that you are eligible for emergency housing as you have children. Have a read of the following:

Is there anyone at all you can call right now? thanks

Go to your local authority with a letter from your now ex telling you to leave.
Present as homeless and hopefully you will be given temporary accommodation until something suitable becomes available, or depending where you are they may have something straight away. Don't be picky. What matters is a roof over your children's heads, it can be improved after that urgent need is met.

Also phone Shelter for advice.

Sorry to hear this. What were your living arrangements before you moved, did you have your own place? Can you contact that landlord to ask if they have anything else?

If you are leaving due to domestic abuse, call 0808 2000 247 - they'll be able to help you find a refuge space for you and your family

Sorry I posted too soon. I don't know where in England you are but I hope the link above gives some more advice that's helpful.

There should be an out of hours homelessness number? If you feel comfortable to say where you are it can be looked up for you to save your data?

You can’t leave tonight
So plaster a smile on, for the sake of your children, profoundly apologise to this cretinous being, settle the children to sleep, smile and grovel.

Unlikely you’ll make much progress tomorrow but you can research. All the time keeping that subservient smile on your face.

Then Monday - attack the project is moving out.

You do this for their children so they seamlessly move from one place to another.

That’s what I’d do anyway.

Presuming you’re safe of course
