Housing advice & options

Before continuing, here are some things you need to know

If you are homeless, becoming homeless soon or have to move out of your current home and would like to know what housing options are available to you, the first step is to complete an online housing options form. Once completed, a personalised 'Action plan', showing the housing services available to you, is yours to keep.

Before starting the housing options form, please make sure you have the following documents or proofs with you:

  • your National Insurance number

  • list of any medical conditions

  • details of your current housing situation - fro example, how you became homeless or why you feel you need to leave your current home

Along with your application form you will be asked to provide the following documents:

  • proof of identity for all household members (e.g. passports, birth certificates)

  • proof of current address (e.g. recent gas or electricity bill)

  • evidence of your right to reside in the UK if you are not a British Citizen (e.g. passport and other relevant documents from the Home Office)
