If you’re homeless or in need of support with accommodation, there is support available for you.
Contact your local authority
If you are homeless or threatened with homelessness, please first go to your local authority to present yourself and register as homeless. They will be able to tell you if they can help you find accommodation, which may be emergency accommodation, and can add you to a housing waiting list or direct you to available housing support.
Your local council does not always have to help you find emergency accommodation if you are homeless. English local councils run a 'priority need' system which was originally set up to make sure that the most vulnerable homeless people are helped first. However, the 'priority need' system can negatively effect many 'single-homeless' people who do not have the same rights to emergency housing as others do.
Domestic violence or abuse
Call the National Domestic Violence Helpline on 0808 2000 247 if you are experiencing domestic violence or abuse.
