We can give you advice on homelessness options, including refuge and emergency accommodation.
We can also advise on other housing options, rights to remain in your home and appropriate court orders. Your legal rights to the family home will depend upon the type of housing you live in, the legal status of your relationship and whether or not you have children. You should seek advice about the family home even if you are leaving permanently because, if your partner sells/leaves the home, you may lose money and possessions.
We are the first point of referral for anyone wanting to access the Sanctuary Scheme and we can advise you whether you are eligible for safety measures to make your home safer through this scheme.
Each of the boroughs we cover has housing information available on their websites at:
