    How old are you? http://www.nacro.org.uk/services/nottinghamshire/nacro-ash-villas-supported-housing/ take ex-offenders aged 16-25 for help with housing.

    Target help any ex offender over 16 http://www.frameworkha.org/pages/target_-_floating_support_for_offenders.html

    Or see what your council can offer you?

    notts housing advice is a specialist centre http://www.nottshousingadvice.org.uk/how-we-can-help-you/

    or nationally, you could call shelter for advice http://england.shelter.org.uk/get_advice/finding_a_place_to_live

    Most of those links Katralla put up for you should still help. Shelter are often very good, particularly at signposting you to local resources and guidance.

    One thing thats worth bearing in mind though, is that you may not want to go into a hostel long term, and you might want somewhere your kids can come and stay long term, in the first place you may be best just getting somewhere to live, and there somewhere independant, and then work up (reasonably quickly) to exactly what you want.

    The link that offers help for anyone over 16 will still help you if you're 41. And, as Scary Monster says, Shelter are very good for advice.

    Hey paul and dawn,

    As Katralla suggests, Notts Housing Advice is probably going to be the best place to start. I used to volunteer there and they can give some really great, applicable advice. They should be able to provide you with information that is relevant to that area.

    Good luck!
