So basically i have autism, I cant get work and when I do and work hard, I get treated like dirt. So I dont want to be negative and I am honestly a positive optimistic person usually. Even with agencies are bad and I know i be only doing it for the money and being an assistant in a school will be overwhelming.

So I'm gonna study and work hard, focus on that while I'm claiming this. I dont know if I'm entitled to housing benefit through council as im living in a place but I think that's through uc. I believe I'm better off on this atm, it's the right choice?

There is a housing element to Universal Credit yes.

Only you know if this is the right choice to be honest. It's very difficult to see a way through sometimes.

What qualifications do you have? Perhaps TSR can point you in some directions?

I would advise giving Citizens Advice a ring to find out what you might be entitled to at the moment before you make any drastic changes with regards to benefits

Depending on your circumstances you could also be entitled to Personal Independence Payment.
