    help with moving costs on ESA 15th Jun 13 at 12:52 AM
    Hi I was wondering if anyone can help?

    I'm moving from Gosport (Hampshire UK) to County Durham (UK) to be closer to family but I'm having trouble getting my stuff (and animals) to my new house.

    I am on income related ESA and have applied for a budgeting loan (and been turned down), and a crisis loan (been turned down aswell), asked for a loan at the bank (been told don't have enough income), cant get an overdraft (as I have a basic account), cant get a credit card (as I currently don't work and my credit rating is poor), cant get a loan anywhere (as I don't work and credit rating is poor), I've asked family members (but none of them have any spare cash they can help me with as were not a very well off family).

    I've been told that there is no community care grant anymore does anyone have any idea if there is any help out there for people with disabilities who are trying to move back to their families? or anything else anyone can suggest?

    I just seem to keep coming up against brick walls with everything I try and my mental health is getting worse because of it I have cried non-stop all day today because I feel I've tried everything and I'm just getting nowhere.
