Preventing homelessness

Living with family or friends and have been asked to leave?

In this situation we will listen to you and then speak to your friend or family member about their reasons for asking you to leave.

We will also try to resolve the problem by negotiating to help you stay in the property.

If you cannot stay at the property we will assist you in obtaining alterative housing.

Dependent on your circumstances, this could be in either the housing association or private rented sector or hostel accommodation.

It is important that if you are thinking of moving out, that you have time to plan where you will move to and how you will manage with a tenancy of your own.

If you can, and it is safe for you to do so, it is better to remain living with friends or family until you have your new home ready to move into.

We can also offer mediation to try and resolve conflict within the family to prevent homelessness.
