Worried about becoming homeless

If you’re worried about becoming homeless, let us know

Who we can help

We can help if you’re going to become homeless within the next eight weeks (56 days).

We have a duty under the Homelessness Reduction Act to intervene early and offer support to those threatened with homelessness.

If you are at risk of homelessness because you are struggling to pay your rent, more information is available on our problems paying your rent page.

If you have an eviction notice, don't wait until you receive a court date, contact us straight away. 

What we'll do

If you're a private tenant, we can intervene early by speaking to your landlord to resolve any issues you may have.

If it's not possible to prevent you becoming homeless, we'll try to help you to find a new home.

We can also help if:

  • you're fleeing domestic abuse
  • facing possession proceedings
  • being evicted by a private landlord
  • being asked to leave by friends or relatives

If your landlord has told you to leave without notice, this is illegal. You can find out more on our private tenant at risk of becoming homeless page.
