Do you offer any help with homelessness?
What can I do if I, or someone I know, is at risk of being homeless?
Unfortunately, we cannot offer any direct help to you if you are currently, or you're at risk of becoming homeless. However, we have put together an article including some resources that are available.
If someone is at risk of becoming homeless, their local council is legally obliged to help them. You can find a link to your local council here.
There are many reasons a person may be at risk of becoming homeless. For example, they may have no legal right to accommodation anywhere in the world, they may be at risk of domestic violence or abuse, or they may be living in poor conditions, such as overcrowding.
If you believe you or someone you know matches this description, you can find more information about the help available on the government website here.
I have noticed a rise in people sleeping on the streets in my area
If you are worried about someone you believe to be rough sleeping in your area, the homeless charity Shelter has a page of resources that can help here.
They recommend referring the rough sleeper to Street Link, a charity that aims to end rough sleeping by enabling members of the public to connect vulnerable people to local services.
