Homelessness doesn’t just apply to people sleeping rough but also to those at risk of losing their current home.

Due to the increase in homelessness nationally, we’re addressing the issue through preventative measures.

Our priorities are to:

  • get involved earlier on to prevent homelessness before it happens
  • give you housing information in time for you to make housing choices and plan ahead
  • ensure there is fair access to housing to meet housing needs
  • ensure access to services that can help people get the housing support they need to live independently

You can also read our Rough Sleeper Charter to find out how we're working with different organisations to support the homeless and help them get into ongoing accommodation.

Get housing advice

If you’re homeless or about to become homeless you can book an appointment where we can give you advice, support, and, if needed and in priority need (pregnant, have dependent children or are vulnerable), temporary accommodation for you and your household.
