    Not certain but if you are 18 and at the risk of becoming homeless then go to your local council, see if they can get you a flat somewhere.

    worth a try
    Everything does seem to involve communicating with the council, I will do that.

    OK, but if you change your mind then don't hesitate to let us know. I would be glad to help

    Yes, that's our best option now, do keep us updated. I can understand why you feel that way, as they are your family and provide for you but your situation does fit the definition of forced labour if you're doing it out of fear of repercussions. You don't have to tell the council about that part if you're worried.
    Thank you sosososo frikkin much, miss. You're an 😇 angel!!

    if you consider that that is a realistic possibility then you should speak to the Police

    however choosing to live in the 21st centruy means cutting all ties with the throwbacks ...

    I agree and think pakistani's and muslims in general are good people but some are twisted and even do 'honour killings' can't believe they use that phrase but you then cut ties no joke I think you should use this thread for help too. You are lucky enough to live in England unlike Pakistan and Indian or other asain and African countries

    Only skipped through the thread. for what its worth.

    1. Get your passport.

    2. Decide if you wish to leave home/ are going to get booted, then getting access to hoising is your priority. Shelter and centrepoint if in London are good suggestions or any charity for the young homeless. They cna give you your options.

    3. I am unsure and think its less likely the LA are under a duty to house you becayse you are 18. Shelter or centrepoimy cna tell you. If you cnat find out I will look it up.

    3. prepare an escape kit including money, passport and anything vital including a set of clothes and any essentials, then place it somewhere you cna assemble easily, so if the worts comes to the worst grab it and go.

    4. Shelter/ CAB can advise you on how to access the benefits system. You will be able to get housing benefit, which will be enough fo a room in a shared house. unfortunately it wont be much and its difficult when you have no job and no deposit. I would look for a housing charity in your area. Shelter will know.

    5. Get a job and save money. By this time you need to escape your dad and fend for yourself. Eventually you might get a bedsit and be independent. You may wish to hide from your father if he is a violent man or will cause trouble. Once you cna pay for yourself, food, rent, etc, then you cna consider the next step.

    6. Imo that would be college or maybe even an access course next year. Careers advice as well to decide what you wish to do.

    7. You could also consider an apprenticeship, Some are good and cna give you skills. Some are only a year.

    8. either get a better job and be independent/ follow a career or go to uni via an access course. You cna stay there and work wherever it is during golidays.

    9. get a good degree, have an independent life, have a career when you come out. never have to see your dad again.

    that would be my rough plan.

    os saw some mention of honour killings. its too late for that. Common sense hide and protect yourself.

    poor advice

    leaving unless it is on the advice of the Police is the worst possible thing to do , in doing so you make yourself intentionally homeless and ineleiglbe for help beyond access to advice and to apply for housing benefit

    you need to the thrown out / your parents need to refuse to allow you to return or you need to advised to leave by the Police - then you are homeless due to the actions of others and therefore fully eligible for all forms of support .

    I did see this part while researching. 'Intentionally homeless' means severely reduced integration into the systems I'll need.

    Not really because their first port of call is to get proper advice and an idea of what their options are. Thats a safeguard to avoid any fundamental mistakes.
    I never said leave I said decide whether he wanted to and then talk to the porfessionals.

    Are you suggesting talking to professional housing advisers whose job it is to deal with such situations is bad advice?

    Are you suggesting they will not know what to do? Ridiculous.
