Housing/ housing benefit/homelessness in Homelessness Posted May 28, 2016 Thanks Stu007 thanks for your reply! Even though I have full housing duty council have said they've not made any offer there just saying what options are at the moment. Regarding the debt from years ago I only now owe 329 and housing register people say if I pay it all off would go in my favour but won't guarantee I can bid for anywhere because they have to look at why I got in arrears in first place! I didn't know I had got into arrears I didn't know housing benefit didn't go through or was stopped going through! I went into hospital 3weeks after I was in hostel in 2012 shelter said don't pay it all off straight away till we know they will let me bid it's will be a negotiation thing. I had a meltdown a few days ago and I can't stay in this hostel because my stress and anxiety is so bad being around strangers and that I feel I can't do it anymore I ended up talking to my support worker and told him, he said he could see me struggling so we had good chat I said I can't go in different hostel nothing will change my fear stress and anxiety will be the same so he is coming to my appointment with my doctor next week so he is supporting me.
