I am Homeless

We can help!
Please know that you don’t have to go through this alone. 

If you have become homeless or are at risk of homelessness, in the first instance, you must contact your local authority as they may be able to help you with accommodation. It is best to contact the local authority as soon as possible. If they can’t help you they can refer you to the appropriate service.

Who we can help

Whether you’re sleeping on the streets, sofa surfing or at risk of becoming homeless, we can support you to access the services you need. 

No matter your background or what led to your homelessness, we can help you to find suitable accommodation and support within our services. We can assist single homeless individuals from the ages of 18+.

If you are under the age of 18, please contact your local P2i Hub:

We are unable to house those with no local connection, however we may be able to assist with reconnecting you to your local area, unless there is reason why you cannot return.
