Housing advice for people with mental illness or impairment
If you have a mental illness or impairment and face losing your home, we may be able to help.
The moment you fear you're at risk of losing your home, contact our Community Advice and Support Team. The sooner we speak to you, the more time we have to stop you losing your home or find you somewhere else to live when you do.
We may decide the vulnerability caused by your mental illness or impairment qualifies you as priority need for accommodation. When considering your case, we'll collect information from health professionals to help make our decision.
