Housing support

Having a roof over your head is a basic human right. Having that jeopardised can be frightening and if that’s your situation, we can help.

You're not alone

If you’re faced with a housing crisis and fear for you and your family’s safety and security, you don’t have to go through it alone. If you let us know what you’re dealing with, we’ll let you know how we can help and get you some housing support.

Through our partnership with Shelter in England and Wales we can put you in touch with experts on housing issues. It could be that you’re threatened with eviction because you’re struggling to cover your rent or are behind on your mortgage payments.

Are you losing your home?

Perhaps you’re in danger of losing your home as a result of a dispute with your landlord or mortgage lender or have found yourself in accommodation that jeopardises your and your family’s health. Or maybe you’re at risk of homelessness after leaving your home due to domestic violence, or for other reasons.

No matter why you’re having housing difficulties, we can connect you to the experts at Shelter who will talk you through the problems you’re experiencing, help you figure out your next steps and support you in turning your situation around. Get in touch with us to talk it through.
