Homeless upon leaving hospital

How can I get help?

If you have nowhere to live after being discharged from hospital, we may be able to offer help and support.

You should tell the hospital nursing staff as soon as possible, so that they know that you will be homeless when you are discharged. They will ask the hospital discharge team to help if they can.
The discharge team may refer you to our Housing Options Team. They will assess your situation and probably take a homeless application. You may be offered temporary accommodation while your application is assessed.

If you have a home already but it needs to be adapted, the hospital can refer you to Lightbulb, the team responsible for home adaptations and disabled facilities grants.
