If you are in an emergency housing situation and are about to be made homeless, or are already homeless, then you should contact the Shelter emergency line on 0808 800 4444.
Your next step should be to contact your local Homeless Person's Unit. Use Shelter's Emergency Housing Rights Checker before you go, or contact the advice line to make sure you understand what the council's obligations are.
If you're sleeping rough or you know someone who is, contact Street Link.
All of our accommodation services are by referral only.
Most of our community support services are open for people to refer themselves. If you need support to maintain your tenancy, help getting back into work or accessing a training course, then we might be able to help.
