Temporary Accommodation Frequently Asked Questions

Can I go away while I am in temporary accommodation?

If you are going to be away overnight, you must inform the council and the manager of the temporary accommodation.

Any absence from temporary accommodation must be agreed in advance.  The council will only agree an absence from temporary accommodation for exceptional circumstances.   Absences that are longer than 7 days may mean you will have to move out of the temporary accommodation you currently occupy and move to another temporary accommodation when you get back.  Being away for longer than 7 days may also affect the priority you have for moving out of temporary accommodation and in to settled housing.
