Back story

For the last 4 years things have been horrible at home. I was abused by a guy online. My mum then turned into an alcoholic. She has been emotionally and physically abusive since then. Recently things have been getting worse. A week ago she threatened to push me over our balcony, beat me, said that she wished I had killed myself to everyone out of their misery and has said more horrible things.
My social worker did nothing until yesterday. She said I’d go to a foster home today but it’s not happening now even though her boss approves. Mum is acting smug and being aggressive still because the placement is for 6 weeks.
I am so close to snapping back at her. My stepdad isn’t at home, I have no siblings and no other family. I have to get away because if I don’t I risk snapping and doing things I’ll regret. I have run away before. But I’m worried if I do then they will take my placement away. And that I’ll be stuck with mum. I don’t know what to do.

But if I did, given the circumstances, what are my rights? Do I have any?

if she threatened to push you over a balcony tell social services. I doubt they'll make you live with her

They know. Hence the placement. But they are taking so long. They don’t even care.
