Housing plans

We will work with you to agree a personalised housing plan to either prevent or relieve homelessness depending on the circumstances.

This plan will likely include steps you have agreed to take, such as negotiate with your parent or landlord if either are taking steps to evict you, or it may be that you will agree to try to find your own accommodation.

We will include steps that we have agreed to take, for example we may talk to your parent or landlord about trying to keep you in your current home if it’s suitable and safe to.
