If I remember correctly you're Hastings way?
So If my memory serves me correctly (if not I've just shot myself in the foot) I am sorry to say your choices are very limited.. I would say, and I
know this might sound cruel, but you would be better off looking for work Brighton way, even if it travelling by train to begin with and then build
from there. Given Brightons reputation for being on the creative fringe, you might even find the right contacts for writing etc.
I say this because my partners son's girlfriend is Bexhill Way and to be honest at 19 he can do as many courses as he likes over there, but the
chances of him getting any kind of a job over there that would mean he and his girlfriend could stay there together is really really slim, so I am
guessing it must be more dire the closer you get to Hastings... and the only thing we can do is encourage them both to come this way, towards
Brighton, where they have a chance of a better life.
If it was me, I would be looking at the agencies that line Queens Road (runs from Brighton Station towards the seafront) part way along Queens Road
(No 113) is Brighton Housing Trust and they have a list of all the landlords that take people on benefits and either none or low deposit.. but I
think Brighton housing trust also has offices in Hastings, perhaps they might be able to advise you?
Sorry I can't offer better advice, but perhaps when you're more sorted, you can move back home, start a business and help others? and at least you are
only a relatively short train journey along the coast from family.
Warm wishes, Nick.
[ For those that don't know while Hastings might be in the South, large parts fall into our nations most deprived 1%. ]
