At risk of becoming homeless

If you're looking for somewhere to live or worried about losing your accommodation it's important to talk to us as soon as possible as we can provide help, advice and support to prevent you from becoming homeless.

We can:

  • help you find a home (social or private)
  • help you with private rented accommodation by working with you and your landlord to resolve any tenancy issues (benefit problems, legal notices or poor housing conditions)
  • check to see if you're eligible for a deposit guarantee (a written agreement in place of a cash deposit) to help you into private rented accommodation
  • check to see if you're eligible for any housing benefits to help pay part or all of your rent
  • help you deal with legal issues if your landlord has applied for a possession order
  • talk to your friends and relatives if they've asked you to leave your accommodation
  • make referrals to supported accommodation
  • give you advice about local support and services if you're sleeping rough
