The social letterbox: Help, I'm stavnsbundet in animals apartment

I am a woman of 50 years living alone with my two daughters, aged 15 and 16 years.

I have worked since I was 11 years old. From 1992 to 2015 I worked as a beautician, but I have been sick since October 2015, where I was operated on in the neck for two diskuprolapser. Further, I have osteoarthritis and suffer from Cluster headache.

I yell usually not high, but now is enough, enough! I'm SO sick of the job centre, that I'm about to throw up.

last year after 17 years of marriage – my husband could not more disease. I therefore sought for help to the deposit plus a month rent and flyttehjælp of the municipality. Was allowed to borrow for the deposit, but since I had a pension of 25,000 crowns, I had to use it for the rent and moving. I was forced to do.

on the 8900 dollars, in addition to heating, water and electricity. I'm in a ressourceforløb on kontanthjælpstakst, so there is a lot of money to do some good. I have been to the commune MANY times to ask if they would help me find a cheaper apartment, but no, I could even do.

And yes, I can, but it costs just the box to be a member of the various residential sites and at various housing associations, so I can't.

found a cheaper home to us, it's a two bedroom for only 7500 dollars per month – water, heating and electricity!

– but the municipality will not help! So now I sit stuck in my expensive apartment for 9000 dollars, and the examiner believes that the I must clear myself ... But I barely afford food for my girls – I have not advice to my medicine!

I have an overdraft facility of 30,000 crowns, which are used fully, but it can a caseworker do not see any problem in.

What would you advise me to do?

the Municipality is by law entitled to give you a refusal, if they deem that you already have a suitable home, which they evidently have done in your case. However, you must also bear in mind here that you need to have a refusal in writing, you can complain about.
