Asking family or friends for help
If you are struggling to find a privately rented home, people you know may be able to help.
You can try asking family or friends if they have somewhere for you to stay. Even if you can only stay with them temporarily, it will give you time to keep looking for somewhere else.
Even if family or friends can't help, they might know someone else that has somewhere for you to stay.
If you do find somewhere to stay with family, friends or someone they know, you could offer to pay them some rent at a level you can afford.
You could also use social media to let people know you are looking for somewhere to stay.
