I need financial advice! (UK) Current situation is Titanic! [Feb. 11th, 2009|06:38 am]

My partners finishing uni in the next 3 months - then out on the street right at the start of the worlds biggest depression for 100 years! (Link a, Link b)

We have no assets - liquid or otherwise.
With only my income - we'll have quite large negative cash flow - even if she signs up for job seekers, but I don't think she can claim as we live together.

We'll be renting a house we can't afford, and have no money for a new deposit.
I can get advances from work, but that will only add a few weeks breathing space.
A few weeks later still, we'll run out of money for food, and for me to get to work, most non-essential bills will now be defaulted on!

I am starting to look for a better paid job - but frankly, the one I have now is gold. I love it. It's up there on the list of "crisis-priorities" to keep.

We could both look for weekend work - maybe Morrison's nearby.

Some friends have already provided useful information, but I wanted to ask people here for more help and information!

Also - if we end up homeless... does anyone have any storage space for our computers?
Maybe too - a couch for us to crash on?
Seriously - this is serious! Help!
