The poster above has just about covered it. Ultimately, temporary accommondation is just that, and as there are so many people waiting and an inadequate supply of housing, you would be best advised to start searching all options available as well as bidding on flats- this may mean a private rental. The system is clogged with people wishing to assert their 'rights' but who accept no responsibility for their own situation. Finding onself homeless is awful, but many people do not even get a temporary place- I work in a hostel where a homeless mother and son are sleeping on the floors of the older daughters bedsit whilst they await the availability of temporary accommodation.
To get moved on quickly, keep placing those bids, but start visiting letting agencies too.
