What immediate help can I get?
The local authority has different legal responsibilities depending upon your circumstances.
If you have nowhere to stay tonight then we may provide you with emergency accommodation to relieve your homelessness providing you are eligible for social housing. If you do not have recourse to public funds then the city council will not have a duty to find you emergency accommodation and you will need to make your own arrangements. We will offer you advice and assistance to do this.
If you become in need of temporary accommodation at any point during the homeless application process you can request it.
