I’ve been told to leave the home of my parents, relatives or friends
If you're aged 16 to 24 years old the best place to go locally to get advice is the Homeless Hub. The Homeless Hub is an advice and support service hub provided by One YMCA in partnership with Herts Young Homeless (hyh). It is a single point of contact for homeless prevention services for 16 - 24 year olds in Hertfordshire.
If you're older, you can get a suggested advice and action plan on finding an alternative home here
- If one action from the action plan is to find private rented home see Looking for a private rented home
- If social housing is shown as a suitable option, you should follow the instructions in the action plan
Advice and support from the council
Register first with the council's Housing Customer Portal here. We will then contact you to arrange an appointment to see you within 5 working days to discuss your housing situation with you. We will ask you to bring several documents to the appointment. The documents needed include ones that prove your identity and your eligibility to receive advice and support, your family's details, anything written about your housing situation such as a letter asking you to leave and information about your income and expenditure. More information about the Housing Customer Portal can be found here.
