Not everyone is entitled to emergency housing when homeless.
To qualify for emergency housing, you must:
- be legally homeless now
- meet the necessary immigration and residence conditions (also known as ‘eligible for assistance’)
- have a priority need for housing, or someone in your household must fall into a priority need group.
Emergency housing is a short-term option while we look into your housing situation. You could offer you somewhere in the form of bed and breakfast (B&B), a homeless hostel or a self-contained flat or house.
