My parents work full time themselves, my father gives most of his money to his ex wife for my little sister, my mother uses all her money to live, neither of them have enough for themselves let alone to help me now.

unfortunately crisis loans do not cover rent arrears, or unable to pay rent.

I didn't even realise Swansea had more than one uni lol. Yeah deffo worth trying though uni's tend to be quite sympathetic when it comes to Student Finance being crap. Hope you get it sorted.

unfortunately so. I believe they class having a home as a luxury. :/
Probably get negged for this but, Crisis loans get given out willy nilly to all the winos but those that genuinely need the help get often ignored.
I knew someone who applied and got granted a crisis loan... £5 to last a month. yet you see all the winos queing (sp?) up to get it cashed and see them hopping round picking up cheap booze straight after.

Looking for work so much, nowhere is hiring, thats the problem, i have looked and applied for everything, and i have even started looking into medical research to help.

I only have to pay £1200 off in two weeks, so if i can get that sorted then i can sort the rest over time.

I get £800 at the end of April, so i basically need to hope things work out. I dunno, this has stressed me for so long and now my landlord has gave me a date to pay it by i am even worse. I literally am so close to giving up.
You should go on job seekers allowance then.
You need the help!
