Emergency housing for homeless care leavers

Get advice immediately if you become homeless or if you are living in unsuitable housing. Shelter offers a free housing advice helpline which is open every day of the year 8am - 8pm on weekday, 9am - 5pm on weekends.

If you become homeless once you've left care and you're aged 18-20 you will have an automatic priority need for housing. If you're 21 or over, you might have a priority need if you are considered vulnerable. Our Housing Options team can help you with advice and assistance.

You can complete our self-referral form or call us on 0808 175 3595.
