Homelessness prevention service

If you are homeless or at risk of losing your home within the next 56 days, you must seek help and advice immediately.

The Homelessness Prevention Service are able to help with making sure you remain in your home. If this option is not possible, we will help you find somewhere else to live but it’s important you contact us!

Already in temporary accommodation? Pay for your stay on the temporary accommodation charges form.

Professionals in the public sector have a duty to refer someone who is threatened with homelessness. For more information read GOV.UK’s a guide to the duty to refer.
