    Perhaps give the Citizens advice bureau a try, I think they offer free advice and will be able to point you in the right direction. There should be a branch near you, if not, consult their website, maybe they have a telephone line or something.

    When you say you have been asked to leave home, are your parents literally chucking you out, or just saying that they would like you to find somewhere else to live?

    The council HAVE to provide you with accomodation if you are being made homeless involuntarily. Speak to someone at the CAB, http://www.citizensadvice.org.uk/, and get on it STRAIGHT AWAY - i.e. RIGHT NOW so you can get your accomodation sorted ASAP.

    Whether you need to drop out of your course is a decision only you can make, but remember that stress is only temporary if you can work through it; whereas dropping out of your course is permanent.

    Go to your local Citizens Advice centre (a free local council service) and tell them your issue. Alternatively speak to Connexions, the local council-if all else fails go to your local job centre and speak to an advisor.
    Your best bet is the Citizens Advice centre though.
    Good Luck

    Yup... He was rehoused because he literally didn't have a place to go. He had to prove that there was no way he could live with his parents, and then he was given a place...

    How about you get a job and rent privately?

    Stop expecting the government to sort your life out.
