Apply for Housing Assistance

If you are currently homeless or facing the threat of homelessness then you may be eligible for housing assistance. Complete our online housing needs assessment to receive further advice and information about your current situation and the options available to you.

Before you start

You will need access to a computer to complete an online application. You will also need to have a few details to hand, including evidence of your current situation, address, right to live in the UK, employment status and any medical issues.

Make a new application

You will need to complete your housing assistance application in My Account. Once you have created and activated (or signed in if you are an existing My Account customer), you will need to select ‘Applications for Housing Assistance’ from the list.
