Potentially disowned - student finance?

    My parents are very strict Muslims, and I'm not religious, which they don't know. I'm very certain that shortly they will discover this, and the fact I have a white boyfriend. As a result I'm 99% sure they will disown me and stop all contact with me, as they did for a while when I first left to go to Uni.

    I was wondering if anyone had experienced similar and could advise me on access to Student Finance accessible? I understand I'd be independent if I could prove I was estranged but my entire family and family friends will cut contact with me entirely so I can't get proof off anyone 'in the know'.

    Thanks in advance.
