Hi I have split your post from the original topic and renamed it as the other poster hadnt received many replies yet and it may have got lost as people read and answered yours. Its always better to start a new topic if you want specific advice and its easy to do just a click of a button (new topic seen at the top of each board)

Anyway to answer your question, have you tried your local benefits office, or CAB/DIAL even your local job centre as hopefully someone will know what you are entitled to, even if you are self employed there are still benefits that may be applicable to your situation
