2. Are you threatened with homelessness?

If you are threatened with homelessness in the next 28 days we should be able to assess if you are eligible for assistance in securing accommodation. All assessments are made under the Housing Act 1996 (as amended) so follow law in what decides a persons eligibility for assistance.

To be eligible for assistance from us you must be:

  • homeless
  • eligible 
  • priority need 
  • have not become homeless on purpose
  • have a local connection to Exeter

You do not have to have a local connection if you are escaping violence or are a member or previous member of the armed forces.
