Homeless or risk of homelessness

Help with preventing or relieving homelessness

Are you eligible?   

If you are a British citizen and living in the UK then you are eligible for assistance.

If you are a person from abroad then our specially trained staff will screen whether you are eligible for homelessness services.

This is a complex area of the law and will depend on your nationality, immigration status and residency.

Even if you are not eligible for homelessness services we can offer you free advice and information on where to get help.

Applying to us for help    

We will offer you an appointment to find out about your housing needs and discuss whether we have a duty to offer you additional help.

The help that we can offer you will depend on your personal circumstances and may include:

  • support to prevent or delay you from becoming homelessness
  • a plan of action to relieve your homelessness if you do lose your home
  • assistance with temporary accommodation 
  • access to settled accommodation

We will try to make everything clear and easy for you to understand.

We will offer you assistance if English is not your first language or if you have mobility difficulties, sight or hearing loss, learning difficulties or other communication needs.

If you would like to speak with us about your housing needs then please contact us.
