I need emergency short term help

Deborah, England

I am expecting a baby in a few months. I have been working as a contractor for the last few years completing short term contracts, but since becoming pregnant the work has stopped. I will not be able to claim benefits for another 6 weeks, but I need to pay my rent now. I don't want my child to be born in emergency accommodation but if I have to leave here I will have nowhere else to go. Please, please help me stay in my home for my baby. I have no other options, please.
