Hi, Due to move soon and could really do with some help on what we are or aren't entitled to. Basically to cut a long story short my husband is soon to deploy to Afghanistan. We have three young kids and I have a chronic illness for which I'm registered disabled, and which often results in hospital stays. My consutant was concerned about me coping on my own for such a long period of time, so following advice we therefore set about getting an au pair to help out. To do this we needed an extra bedroom, so therefore put in a request to move, which luckily was granted. Initially I was so grateful that I didn't bat an eyelid when they said that we'd have to pay for the move ourselves and wouldn't qualify for any disturbance allowance. To be fair we're only moving 12 miles down the road, so we just accepted that we'd crack on and do it all ourseves. However I've since been advised (by a Families Officer) that he thought we may be entitled to something. I went back to try and find him yesterday and he wasn't in. Like I said we're more than happy to accept the advice from the HIC if this is just the way it is, but equally it seems silly not to even try to find out if there is any chance of anything! Would be massively grateful for any help whatsever! Thanks in advance!
