Could someone give me some advice as to this problem. I am a caseworker for the RBL in Huddersfield and have just taken on a new client who needs larger and better located accommodation. He is an ex infantryman 27, with 10 years service, Kosovo, Iraq, Afghanistan, a broken marriage ( with a child), a house repossessed, a wound from an AK round, suffers from PTSD and was discharged on medical grounds - cancer. He has considerable debt ( likely to go bankrupt), lives in a small flat with his partner (the flat is a private tenancy) and he has to sleep on the settee in the lounge because they cannot get a double bed or two single beds in the bedroom - nor wardrobe or other furniture. His partner is his carer so she sleeps on the single bed upstairs. The local council have refused to help because it is their belief that he has 'adequate accommodation' and the only place he could be offered is in a council flat on the 8th floor of a nearby tower block. This tower block is the 'sink' estate for asylum seekers - significant numbers of drug dealers and Afghani, Iraqi and other immigrants. He already has been verbally attacked by a wide range of people from the flats (he lives opposite) and has been told by the housing dept that if he refuses to accept a flat in the block even on the grounds of difficult mobility/access or 'persec', he will not be offered any further council accommodation. He has also been told that his request for a flat away from an area where there are significant Afghani/ Iraqi populations is 'racist' - even on the grounds of 'persec and PTSD is unacceptable and they would not condone such a request. HELP please -- where can I go to find alternative accommodation or a case to lever a flat from the council?
