Daniel, get yourself registered with every recruitment agency in Ashton, Hyde and Stalybridge and get yourself in office based employment of some sort - even if it's call centre work, basic admin work, just get some 'work' experience.
Once you're settled into working look at additional qualifications, online or at college and try to move back into what you want to do.
Trust me, as a local business person (sadly not recruiting!) any kind of work experience is worthwhile.
Good Luck, you deserve a break!
