We are committed to ensure no-one sleeping rough has to spend a second night on the streets.
If you are aged 18 to 21 and spent at least one night in care when you were 16 or 17, our housing options service can help you find a place to live.
If you are fleeing domestic abuse, our housing options team may be able to help.
If you're leaving the armed services, or you are a former member, you may be entitled to extra help if you become homeless.
If you're discharged from hospital and have nowhere to live, we can offer advice and support.

We can offer you help or advice, if you are homeless, or are likely to become homeless, for example in one of the following circumstances:
- You have received a notice from your landlord to leave your current home, or you have been illegally evicted by your landlord.
- You are living with someone else who has asked you to leave their home.
- It is not reasonable to carry on living in your present accommodation because of overcrowding, harassment from your landlord, or if we have declared it unfit to live in
- You are living in fear of violence, including domestic violence, racial or homophobic harassment, or threats from your landlord.

Duty to refer
The duty to refer requires certain named public authorities in England to notify a local housing authority, such as Leicester City Council, of service users they think may be homeless or at risk of becoming homeless. Please use the Homelessness Reduction Act Referral Form to notify us of such cases, so we can provide the appropriate support to the household.
