Homelessness can happen to anyone and can often be prevented if advice and assistance is provided at an early stage. Where homelessness cannot be prevented, there are steps that can be taken to reduce the harmful effects.
If you think you are homeless, or about to be homeless, you should contact Homelessness Services for advice and assistance.
The law states that you are homeless if you do not have accommodation available to you where you can live with anyone who normally resides with you.
