Homeless assessment

How to get an assessment

If you are homeless or you will be homeless within the next two months you are entitled to a homeless assessment. Assessments are carried out by our Housing Officers, and they will review your circumstances and decide whether you are homeless by legal definition.

You can drop in during working hours or make an appointment to speak to someone if you are homeless at our offices.

If you are homeless and have significant support needs, you can speak to someone at the Access Place.

There are four elements that we will look into

  1. Are you eligible for homeless assistance?
  2. Are you homeless?
  3. Have you become homeless intentionally?
  4. Do you have a local connection?

If you are assessed as homeless and you have a local connection, you are entitled to one reasonable offer of permanent, social housing.  To do this we use EdIndex.
