Homeless or worried about becoming homeless

You can ask us for help if you're worried about becoming homeless in the next 56 days.

You can also get immediate help if you have nowhere to stay tonight or are already sleeping rough.

We may not be able to help you if your immigration status means you have no recourse to public funds.
