If you are homeless or believe you are at risk of becoming homeless, get in touch with us as soon as possible, so that we can help.
We may consider you to be homeless if you:
- have been issued with a notice to quit, a possession notice or eviction warrant
- can't go home because of violence or harassment
- have somewhere to stay, but it's not reasonable for you to do so
- have been living with friends or family and been asked to leave
- are sleeping rough
If you'd rather speak to someone on the phone or in person, you can do that too.
We will assess your need and in some cases we may have a duty to provide you with temporary accommodation. This could be in a private rented property, bed and breakfast or women's refuge.
We take into account your personal circumstances, such as whether you are at risk of being homeless, are pregnant, have children, are the victim of violence and we also look at the events leading to your current situation. If we decide we have a duty to house you, we will provide you with emergency temporary accommodation and may be able to help you find a new place to live.
If you aren't eligible for temporary accommodation but are at risk of becoming homeless, there may still be lots of things we can do to help.
