Housing options and homelessness

People become homeless for all sorts of reasons. If you are at risk of losing your home, can't stay where you are, or are worried that you will have to move out soon, we may be able to help you.

Who is homeless?

If you have no permanent / secure accommodation or you have accommodation but are unable to live in it, you are considered homeless. You do not have to be living on the streets to be homeless.

Here are some examples of what being homeless might look like:

  • You have been living with family or friends, but they have asked you to leave  
  • You are unable to stay in your home because you are at risk of violence from someone you live with or used to live with
  • You have separated from your partner and you have nowhere to stay 
  • You are forced to live apart from members of your family because you do not have accommodation where you can live together
  • You have been evicted by Court Order    

If you are likely to become homeless within the next two months we consider you to be threatened with homelessness and can still help you.

Below you will find information / links to resources that may help prevent you from becoming homeless and also how you can get help if you are homeless.
