Thanks everyone. Most appreciated. Another problem hit me tonight. My elephones battery has decided to swell up so I need to get that sorted. I have a feeling that I'll be fun.
Anyway head down for the night now on maccies. Sweet dreams everyone.
Oh wow, what a nightmare, best wishes.
don't want to bring you down but Crisis Loans are no longer available, the 'advance' offered is all the jobcentre can do. Your local council can offer a small grant but that is no more than a few quid.
A pal of mine had a benefit appeal going on and got no payments for 7months (only his disability) and all the council could offer was a 1 week food bank parcel and around 1/3 of the emergency grant that he applied for.
Luckily they reinstated his housing benefit as soon as the appeal went in.
I'm sure things will get better, yr a clever sharp type afterall. Good luck.
