Homelessness support signposting and advice


The first action (relating to street homeless only) is to report to Streetlink, for which no appointment is needed for. Self report via website, if you see or know of anyone sleeping outside, please report them.

You should get in touch with your local authority and ask for help if aged 18 and  are facing a housing issue that could see the end of your accommodation, such as having been issued with a notice seeking possession; or homeless, potentially sleeping on a friends sofa or as a result of a relationship breakdown.
