  • Well done Neil. Glad you beat them to it ! ;-)

  • I'm so glad you got sorted, we were told to stay were we were till a court forced us out after the house we rented was sold whilst we live there. We had to sell our home after my accident because I was not able to work and my fella had to look after me and the kids, so we were homeless. The local councils would not rehome us because we both worked in other counties, we had no family ties to the area as we were ex forces. The told us the would get us a place in a B and B till they could get us a homeless accommodation. It was terrible. We ended up moving over300 miles away to a county were my fella had family ties and because his parents were disabled and needed care they housed us.

    I don't actually remember the time bu my kids do and my other half said it nearly broke him. There was so mant people doing their best not to be helpful, passing the buck etc.

    luckily it was a good move in the end. We were in homeless accommodation -a3 bed flat for 10 months then we got our home where we still live. I got great health care here and fantastic support form the acquired brain injury team and headway. I don't know if I would have had the same input had we stayed down south.

    It's bad enough struggling to make sense of everything around you, it horrid stress for the family trying to get to grips with your injury trying to find your way around a benefit system that doesn't help you to get help you are entitled to without losing the place you live in.

    I hope you will be very happy in your new home.
