A good option for the first few months is to try and arrange to stay with friends or family untill you find your feet.
They will also be able to give you that initial support and help you with some of the important basics.


There are also many Air B&B’s in the UK which are houses that you are able to rent short term, and these often allow pets, which is a great help in giving you time to look for more permanent accommodation.
