What to do about my family?

    To put a long story short, I'm 17 - going into Year 13 in September - and my parents have been emotionally and physically abusive since I was very young.

    I have an older sister and to understand how bad it's gotten in the past, they have almost killed her before. I had a social worker due to worries with the abuse, but I was never removed.

    I guess I'm just making this to ask for help. What should I do? With any luck I'll be going to University in September 2017, but that's a year away, and I have nowhere to move so I can finish my A Levels. I'll also have to come home at Christmas, Easter and Summer during the first year as they don't do 52 week hall rent/I couldn't afford it anyway.

    I need them out of my life, but that's impossible for now.
