Social housing for young adults
Hi, I was just wondering if this section is the best place to get some advice or experiences with social housing for young adults. In particular a 23 year old male who is currently unemployed, struggles with confidence and has previously had a bad experience of living away from home in a shared house. He is currently living with family but really wants to have his own place and independence but without a regular income this is rather difficult. I have heard that under the correct circumstances as he claims Universal Credit (job seekers) he might be able to move into social housing and be supported by the social services / DHSS until he gets a regular job and income. Unfortunately he has no savings to fall back on and is very unhappy with his current situation. This has also been posted in the House & Home section.
