Being homeless and preventing being homeless

If you cannot carry on living where you are, and have nowhere else that it is reasonable for you to stay, we will consider your circumstances under the homelessness law.

The Homeless Team is a part of the Vulnerable Adults Service and provides advice, assistance and support to prevent homelessness.
