my daughter who is 21, has had to put up with over the years all the upset of moving to places where she knows nobody and starting over. Now all she wants is to settle and be housed with her baby daughter. She has No Right to be housed she isn't entitled says the council, she has gone to school wherever we have been posted to and worked when she was old enough but she has no right to be housed! Being out the country she has not had enough time in any particular county to be housed say Hertfordshire council. so she lives between her friends and family so that she qualifies as homeless. she has to do this for 6 months before she is considered for the housing list! Today she was told by the health visitor that the hostel that the council arranged while living between family and friends is where 3 Paedo's live and now has my granddaughter at risk. she can only stay for a day or two with her friend as she lives in a 2 bedroom house with 4 kids. My mother doesn't have the room either and is cronically ill. we are two far away to help her, so that she can be seen as living in the area. it will be approximately 6 months come Oct Nov and then she can be put on a list, but she has to stay in the local vicinity. if she stays with us she loses the right to be housed near her family(where I am originally from and friends. unbeknown to my daughter she has lived with these delightful chaps and shares the communal areas. The heath visitor has told them that she is a signicant risk! No S*** Sherlock, what the hell is she suppose to do. What do service families have to do to get some BASIC help. You hear it often enough in the news that these people watch and wait, its a long game for them. what kind of future has she got to look forward too. I am sick to my stomach with worry.
