Homelessness

Find out what homelessness is, how it can be avoided, how you can get help and what to do if you’re sleeping rough.

You don’t have to be living on the street to be homeless. You may be sleeping on a friend’s sofa, staying in a hostel, or living in overcrowded or unsuitable accommodation.

If you need to talk urgently to someone, call our helpline.

If you are under 25, take a look at our Emergency help and I’ve been kicked out advice which has been specifically put together for young people.
