Anyone can become homeless. If you’re in this situation, it’s important to seek help as soon as possible. Your local council may have to help you and you can get other support.

Next steps

Contact your local council as soon as possible if you’re homeless or at risk of losing your home. Tell them you want to make a homeless application.

Visit Gov.uk if you’re in England or Wales, or Shelter Scotland, to find contact details.
