    At 16 it would be difficult to get benefits for yourself and somewhere to live, in expectational circumstances it s possible so consider calling your local councils housing team or social services I suppose.

    Have you got any other family members who know about this or who you trust? have you got any younger siblings who live with your mother?

    Yes do it! You can get a house nearby it will be just the same. Hope you're okay.
