    Yeah, I knew someone once who was in this situation. You can get help from the state, but have a look around on direct.gov website, or contact your local council. You will be able to stay in a hostel or something.

    goto your schools guidance counsellor / ask your teacher or tutor!!!!!
    they will help show you how to get benefits/a place to stay (put on waiting list for a council flat) - as you are in full time education you shouldn't have to get a job

    Try this.
    Id take the job though- even though it only pays £15 a week, its better than nothing.

    You will be provided with a place to stay, although I think at 16 it's most likely to be a care home. And take the job!
