Homelessness advice and support
There are options that may be available to you to help you find your own accommodation if you are being made homeless.
What you should do first
Your landlord is trying to evict you
You have a possession order from a court
You are being asked to leave by friends and family
Finding your own privately rented home
Help with paying the rent
If you are receiving Housing Benefit, but are finding it hard to cover all your housing costs, you may be eligible for Discretionary Housing Payments.
If you have explored all your options and are still in need of additional financial support, you may also consider applying for a loan from the council through the Newham Community and Crisis Support scheme.
If you can't find somewhere to live and need more advice
