Homelessness

If you are homeless advice is available from our housing advice team.

If you are threatened with homelessness or about to become homeless, don’t delay! We will do everything we can to prevent you becoming homeless in the first place or help you find housing which meets your needs. Get advice now before there is a crisis.

Legally homeless 

We must help if you’re legally homeless, but how much depends on your eligibility, your level of need and if your homelessness is your fault. We are guided by the law that instructs us who is legally homeless.

Help to meet your housing needs

If we can't offer you a home because you are not legally homeless, we may still be able to help with your housing problem.  One of our housing advisors can go through all the housing options open to you.

Rough sleepers

If you are concerned about someone who may be sleeping rough please contact StreetLink

Streetlink

All concerns raised through Streetlink will be passed to P3 Charity, which provides the Gloucestershire Assertive Outreach Team on behalf of all six Local Authorities in Gloucestershire.

Extreme cold weather increases the risk of death and serious illness for those who are sleeping outside on the streets. 

During periods of extreme cold weather we operate a severe weather emergency protocol whereby if the temperature drops below zero we can provide emergency shelter and a bed during the cold weather period.
