Mental health or impairment and homelessness
If you have a mental illness or impairment and risk losing your home or are already homeless we can help.
It is important that you let us know as soon as possible.
We will help you to keep your home or may find you somewhere else to live.
We may decide that vulnerability caused by your mental illness or impairment qualifies you as a priority need. We will collect information from health professionals to help make our decision.
Call us at Housing Options on 01332 888777 (choose option 4 if currently homeless or 5 for threatened with homelessness).
