Benni

I am on ESA due to mental and physical, long term health issues. I am unable to ever work. They award points for people who work, volunteer, or are in training. I cannot do any of those, so people who ARE able bodied get more points that I do.
I do get medical points but I still have nowhere near enough total points to ever get rehoused; I have been bidding for two years and at least thirty people are in front of me every week. I am probably never going to get rehoused. It is not as if Im being overly fussy about properties; I cannot go for stairs for example.

I even had a wonderful doctors letter saying that my current home is no longer suitable and also making me more ill, and I only got a measly 10 points. It is unfair that people who CANNOT work or volunteer get less points than those who CAN. I am a clean, quiet and decent middle aged woman, non smoker, no pets or children. I had landlords sing my praises in the past yet this counts for nothing. I also have the most excellent references, yet I am stuck with terrible neighbours and two flights of stairs that I can no longer manage; with no chance of ever getting out. I cannot afford private either as the shortfall in rent is out of my reach.
