Looking for help

Hi, I’m a self employed specialist floor layer with 20 years experience, lived on a boat until it was stolen and now I’m currently sofa surfing and trying to get a home nice enough for me and my 7yr old boy I’m fighting for custody of .
2 questions…
As there’s not much work due to covid I’m on universal credit? Do you accept as they pay direct to the landlord?
Also if you have more properties can I please have the opportunity to quote for the flooring? I’d just like a home for me and my best friend and also to work.
