Homeless - how we can help

We recognise that to be homeless or threatened with homelessness is a difficult and stressful time. If you are worried about your housing situation or would like more information, please call your local housing office.

Things to remember:

  • You don't have to be living on the street to be homeless.
  • You may be living care of family or friends.
  • You could be living with an abusive partner or parents.
  • You may be leaving care.
  • Your house may be in danger of being repossessed due to non-payment of rent or mortgage.
  • You may be leaving the armed forces or coming out of prison.

We hope that this information will help should you ever be homeless or threatened with homelessness.
