There are many reasons why you may find yourself with nowhere to live. You may have lost your job, you may have been evicted, become suddenly ill or perhaps a relationship has broken down.

Anyone having to leave their current home with nowhere else to live can be considered homeless. You may have somewhere temporary to stay but you need to start planning for a more permanent arrangement.

Whether you are already homeless or at risk of becoming homeless soon, find out more about your options below.
