Worried about being homeless?

7. What help will you receive from us if you meet the criteria?

If we decide that you are homeless, eligible for assistance, in priority need and did not become homeless intentionally, then you may either be housed in temporary accommodation until permanent accommodation becomes available, or you will be offered assistance with a private let.

If you do not meet the criteria or our duty to you ends before accommodation is secured then you will still be offered advice and assistance.

If you are accepted as homeless you can be placed into band D – low priority on the Devon Home Choice scheme.

Being accepted as homeless is no guarantee that you will secure social housing. We work with the charity P.A.T.H to help assist clients into the private rented sector.
