The council know I am a childminder but I didn't want to say to them I am only going to bid on ground floor due to being told by people in hostel you have to use bids up every week or the council bid for you. I didn't not want to bring jeopodise them choosing property for me to bid on. I did bid on a variety as not always ground floor properties to keep me safe.
Bad luck gave me first floor. I cannot think of any way to get children down safely for my job whilst keeping an eye on them. I have a duty of care to the children and also will need to show to Ofsted how I would do this and I cannot think of a way.
I need a ground floor property.
Shelter website states something about asking for a review based on work commitments etc.
What I am after in advice/case laws on anything that has been successful in getting a review in these kind of circumstances and how a lawyer thinks I stand.
I have been advised not to refuse offer otherwise I could end up with nothing but to accept and I then have 21 days to ask for a review of this.
I'm not just refusing due to any old reason, I want to come off benefits now I'm getting housed as I have always worked and get fully working again. This is my work/career.
Accept then seek a review.
I'm scared to refuse as I can't leave my son and myself homeless.
This is what Shelter and Civil Law advised to do to protect ourselves.
