    Okay, I'll be brief. So, for various reasons that I'm not going into, I, with the support of many people including psychologists, counsellors and teachers have decided to move out, at the unfortunate age of 16. I'm aware this isn't ideal, I tell myself that all the time, but that's not the point. I'm meeting someone some time this week and we are going to go looking around at all the accommodation that would be available for someone of my age. I'm assuming I'm going to find myself in one of those hostel dumps, and I was wondering if moving out to one of these places is a slow process. I was hoping to get everything sorted before September. I will be asking him too, but considering this has just recently came to mind, it would be nice to know more details now :yes: Thanks.

    Sorry, also I wasn't really sure whether this was the right forum or not to post this in or not.

    I don't know how answer this if it is a question or a statement but why did you move out, don't block out why you want to move out.

    What do you mean 'don't block out' why I want to move out? It's of no relevance to my initial question, which was, basically, how long does the process of moving out into new accomodation usually take? I imagine you can't just pop into one of those hostels randomly. I was hoping to get everything sorted before September.

    Im not sure on the specifics but im assuming it is likely to be in some social services run or supported place, as they are still as i am aware now responsible for you up intill 18.

    I think when you reach 18 they will help you move on and support yourself, try not to worry about it as they will be helpful and will do their best in the matter. Best to wait till your meeting for the final details i suspect.

    If the OP is Scottish this is not true. We become legal adults at 16.

    them retards there
    Well yes, the general type of people that move to those places at my age is a general concern of mine. I'm wondering how many of them were actually 'kicked out'. If I ever do come into contact with those sort, the plan is to keep my head down and get on with my life.

    Yeah, it would have to be anyways. I cannot support myself at my age for obvious reasons. I'm worried about those places, but it can't be worse than where I am now. The problem is I might not even meet the guy, I've been trying to get in contact with him again for weeks, and because of problems at home I've never been able to meet him. Hopefully I will this week. I guess it would be just nice to know that it is possible to get everything sorted before next year.

    Anyways, thanks for the reply.

    I would have thought it would be i see no reason, just try and meet up with him, he is the person that is going to be able to explain and answer questions better then we can.

    Good Luck Btw

    Well, I don't want to move out, it's hardly ideal, but for the sake of my well being, I don't have a choice. In a perfect world, I'd be happily here for another two years, like normal folk.
