This section will tell you some of the options if you are looking for somewhere to live – Council Housing, Housing Association, and private rented accommodation. See looking for somewhere to live?
It will also tell you what you should do if you have been kicked out or had to leave where you are living (e.g. because of violence or threats) – and who to go to for help with any of these problems. See kicked out (or about to be)?

Remember, most people who are homeless are not living on the streets – they are staying with friends or relatives, on a settee or in the spare room, living in B&B or other temporary situations. Being homeless simply means you do not have a ‘home’, though you may still have a roof over your head.
