You can also approach a local advice centre that will have expertise in these areas. Many will offer a drop in service and 1:1 appointments with a specialist advisor.
Your local Citizens Advice Bureaux is a good place to start. They will be able to point you in the right direct of other local services that can support you through this lengthy process. Please see the Emergency Help section of the site under Free advice for some local phone numbers.
