Why do people become homeless?

Every person's story is unique and we will work with anyone affected by homelessness to understand their personal circumstances which have led to them becoming homeless. However, there are a number of common factors that can contribute to why many people find themselves facing homelessness.

Personal Problems: Including physical or mental health difficulties, drug or alcohol misuse, or a complex mixture of both (dual diagnosis).
Traumatic experiences; including physical, emotional, or sexual abuse, experience of domestic violence, and unstable home environments.

Social Problems: Changes to housing costs/availability of affordable housing
Availability of supported housing
Access to mental health treatment/support

If you are homeless or threated with homelessness please contact our housing advice team through our housing advice form  and a housing adviser will be in contact with you within two working days.
