Our homelessness service

What happens at the meeting?

Our team will chat to you about your circumstances to see if there is any way your homelessness can be prevented or delayed.

This involves checking the legality of any possession proceedings that have been started, negotiation and mediation with your landlord/family member, or providing money advice to enable you to remain at home.

If this is not possible, we will look at other options, such as a homeless prevention loan, to help you access private rented accommodation - for example if you do not have the money for a deposit and/or rent in advance.

Other options include a homeless application, which is a legal process that can allocate housing on a priority basis, as long as you meet certain criteria in homelessness legislation.
