    Hi Femmy,
    Shelter or the Citizen's Advice Bureau would probably be a good place to start looking for information about renting without a guarantor.

    This page here http://m.england.shelter.org.uk/get_advice/private_renting/costs_of_renting/rent_deposit_and_bond_schemes looks like a good start, but it may be worth checking out other pages on the website.

    Hope that helps!

    One other thing to note is if you have savings / money available you could offer to pay the first 3 month's rent in advance and work on that basis. I know some friends in a similar position and have been able to make it work that way.

    Sorry to hear about your situation.
