What to do if you are worried about your housing situation

If you are worried about your housing situation (for example, you are struggling to pay your rent or mortgage, or your landlord is threatening to evict you), we offer advice and assistance to help you stay in your home.

If you are likely to become homeless within 56 days and you are eligible for assistance, we can help to prevent your homelessness. Let us know about your situation by submitting an application on the Home Connections portal and we will get back to you within 48 hours.

We provide specific information and advice to individual groups who are threatened with homelessness. Specific guidance is available for:

  • people leaving prison
  • people leaving HM Armed Forces
  • people leaving hospital
  • care leavers

You can also access additional help and support from the following independent organisations:
