    Days to wait before entitled to any payment =7
    Day first paid, its normally every 2 weeks after claim is confirmed.
    You can make a claim for short term benefit advance. You will need to persist with this.

    https://www.gov.uk/short-term-benefit-advance

    You are more likely to be told to use a foodbank.
    Councils also have a discretionary fund which has taken the place of hardship loans. Its called local welfare assistance.

    https://www.turn2us.org.uk/Benefit-g...t-is-available

    Adviser have discretion to assist if you have a guaranteed job, but probably not for new claimants.
    Budgeting loans become available if you sign in for 26 weeks.

    You could try your bank.
