What to do if you find yourself homeless
Worried about becoming homeless?
If you find yourself homeless or under threat of being made homeless you should always seek advice straight away.
Considering what help is available they will consider whether you fall into a priority group, the circumstances under which you left your previous accommodation, how vulnerable you may be and whether you have a local connection to the area. This will determine whether and what help the local authority will offer. In some cases they will only be able to offer temporary accommodation in the first instance while they consider your application further.
If you are not eligible for social housing most local authorities will offer you some support in securing other suitable accommodation.
