Young care leavers and homelessness
If you are a 18-25 year old care leaver and worried about homelessness we may be able to help you, as you will have a priority need.
You should also speak to your allocated Personal Advisor.
If you are a care leaver aged over 21 and your case has been closed, you can return to request support from the Leaving Care Service up to the age of 25.
We have a duty system that you can contact Monday to Friday from 1pm to 5pm. Call 01332 643907 and ask to speak to a duty officer.
Or you can call Housing Options on 01332 888777 (choose option 4 for homeless or 5 for threatened with homeless), and talk through your options.
If you are currently in care, Children’s Social Care are responsible for finding somewhere for you to live and you will need to discuss this with your allocated Social Worker.
