    advice needed for emergency payment from DSS 10th Jun 05 at 9:35 PM
    I was made redundant in late may and the firm called in administrators.As a result we got no pay etc although some may come eventually. My problem is that as the local job centre is so busy i cant get an appointment till 21st june which means it will be ages before i get any benefit and ive got no money .With 2 young kids my wife cant work any harder and we still need to pay the mortgage etc !!Does anyone know if its possible to get an emergency payment of some sort??? I am looking for work but things are desperately tight and i dont want to borrow. any ideas??
