    Dropped out of University back in November and currently on and off living on my friends sofa, is it possible to move into a house? I'm currently located in Westferry London and not sure if I will be able to get anything from the council

    Anyone help me plan this out as I am really in a bad state right now.

    Barking & Dagenham is the cheapest borough on average.

    You should get in touch with your local council immediately and register as homeless. The quicker you say something, the quicker you can get the help you need

    You would not get help if you made yourself intentionally homeless. Personally I wouldn't say you have but I don't know how the council will say it. But just get in touch!

    Have a look at the Shelter website for more information

    I hope it works out for you OP! x

    Can't you contact hostels for something short-term? Then maybe apply to as many housing associations as possible. Sorry if that's bad advice I can't help you further as I'm not from London.
