Homelessness

If you are homeless or at risk of homelessness we can:

  • offer advice to everyone
  • try to prevent or delay homelessness where possible 
  • advise you on what your rights are
We may have a legal duty to assist you by offering accommodation if your homelessness cannot be prevented and you are:

  • a care leaver
  • pregnant
  • a parent of dependent children 
  • vulnerable through age or ill health
  • in or have been in the armed forces  
  • serving or have served a custodial sentence
  • fleeing violence or abuse
  • in an emergency such as a fire or flood

If you are affected by one of the above, and at risk of homelessness, call 020 7974 4444 and ask to speak to the Homelessness Prevention Service.

We can’t offer accommodation to everyone. The law only entitles some homeless people to an offer of accommodation. Although we go further than the law tells us to our resources are limited, so we can only offer accommodation to those who need it most. Any offers of accommodation will be either temporary in nature, or of privately rented tenancies.

If you have no rights to public funds such as benefits, we may not be able to provide you with housing but we can still offer advice. 

If you or your family do not live or work in Camden, you may be able to access more housing options with your local council.
