We are here to help

We will talk about your current situation and what we might be able to do, and what you can do to help yourself. We can also invite you for a full housing assessment.

If we think you are at risk of becoming homeless, we will have a duty to try and prevent this from happening.

If you are already homeless we will have a duty to work with you to help you resolve your situation. In some circumstances we may have a duty to provide temporary housing whilst we work with you. This may apply if you have children, health problems or other vulnerabilities.

If we can't prevent or relieve your homeless we will then go on to assess what further duties we have to help you.
