So I’ve been on the council house list for about a year and bidding regularly and I’m currently in band 3. I have a 6 month old and am living at my parents house currently. The idea was that I would stay living at my parents house until I went back to work for financial reasons. However, since having my daughter, my house has become classed as overcrowded as my siblings have come home too. I already have PPD and PPA but with the overcrowding we’re all getting on top of each other and arguing constantly and it’s really getting me down, I try not to leave our room if I can help it and I can just feel myself getting a lot worse and I know this isn’t good for my daughter but I don’t want her to be around arguing. Is there anything I can do to help myself get a council house quicker (I am also looking at private renting, but with the price of rent at the moment that’s nearly impossible) any advice would be greatly appreciated x

Thank you for all your messages, I shall look into the housing association and my councils policies. In my area we have 4 bands, with band 1&2 being priority. I’m definitely going to contact my doctor or HV about writing me a letter too. I appreciate all the help.
And to the person thinking I’m trying to jump in front of homeless people in the queue, I only want what’s best for my daughter, I don’t want her to be in a house full of arguing and hate, nor a mother that is getting so low from the negative impact of living here. I never stated that was my intention, and as for telling my family to stop being the way they are, well if I did that in THEIR house, then I would be homeless myself. I was just asking for some advice, not trying to jump ahead of anyone, especially not people that need it more than me x
