Leaving hospital and homelessness
If you think you could be homeless when you leave hospital, you must tell the hospital nursing staff as soon as possible. They can ask their hospital discharge team to help you.
They will be able to make a homelessness referral to us at Housing Options under the duty to refer.
We will assess your situation and if you are homeless on discharge from hospital, we may be able to offer you temporary accommodation whist your application is assessed.
If you already have a home but it isn't suitable
If you have a home but it needs to be adapted to carry on living there, the hospital will refer you to our Healthy Housing Hub.
