  • I know! Councils are slow! And yeah that's what my mum said, were guna see how it goes, cause you never know and if not then she will actually maybe consider kicking me out to help me get a place. Everyone cheats the system. my mum was telling me how some 21 year old in her work said she's guna pretend to get kicked out so she can get a house. And this woman has no children, and a good job. So my mum thought to herself no way will you get one before my daughter lol!! Xx

  • I've been on the list for 6 months with no news.
    There are 7 of us in a 3 bed house, 2 of my brothers have behaviour disorders and it's overall not a healthy and safe environment.
    It's bloody ridiculous, I just want to move out lol :/ xx

  • I was on council list august 2010 & was on band 3 up until march 2012 then got mived up to band 2 because my dad kicked me, my boyfriend & daughter out on the streets & ny daughter was 3months old at the time, housing association couldnt do anything for us & would of happily let us live in the streets because they said people who have lied to get higher priority have took all the suitable homes & so we had nowhere to go. Luckily my dad let us go back but only until end of july but 6/7weeks ago he kicked us out again in another drunken rampage at 11pm at night. Ahain we went to ask for help from the housing association but still nothing they could do, so we stayed on my brothers sofa 1night then a stranger let us stay at her house then we had a phone xall saying we were allowed to go into a homelesshostel but again because people lie to council to get a house quicker who dint need it, they said we could be there for up to a year! Luckiky after5/6 weeks on band 1 we now havw a house, please dont lie to council about getting kicked out when your not, someone who is more needy & are actually homeless could have to live in the streets :( x
