Housing Crisis Service
- Nottingham, 22 Friar Lane, Nottingham, NG1 6DQ
The Housing Crisis Servicehelps people aged 16 and over in Nottingham who are at immediate risk of becoming homeless.
Staff provide urgent housing related support for people who are:
- Facing eviction
- Having problems with their landlord
- Due in court
- Struggling with debts and arrears.
Service users, who can self refer or be referred by others, will have an immediate risk of becoming homeless. The service can help with a wide range of issues, including support with benefits claims, help to resolve disputes, help to tackle financial problems and representation in court proceedings and legal disputes. In most cases there is something the team can do to help. We ask only that people get in touch as soon as possible if they fear they may become homeless.
What we are doing
The Housing Crisis Service prevents homelessness by offering help to people who are in crisis – people who often have nowhere else to turn.
Homelessness can happen to anybody. It could even happen to you. Financial problems, ill health, and bereavement are just some of the things that can drive people to the edge.
The associated costs of every homelessness crisis are enormous, not only to individuals but to society at large, which must pick up the pieces when things go wrong.
The Housing Crisis Service uses its expertise and experience to ensure people do not become homeless as a result of preventable, treatable problems.
