Finding Help

At risk of being made homeless?

Warwickshire has a project called Preventing Homelessness Improving Lives. This link will take you to Rugby Borough Council’s page about PHIL. They may have advice for you.

Since the Homelessness Reduction Act came into law on 3rd April 2018, Rugby Borough Council has had a duty to work with people up to 56 days before they are made homeless. So, if you are within 56 days of being made homeless then contact them. Click here to go to their website.

Just been made homeless?

If you are actually and legally homeless Rugby Borough Council must help you. To make your homeless claim you need to get in touch with the local housing department first – the contact details for this are shown here in the blue box.

What does legally homeless mean?

The definition used by the government can be found by following this link.

If this is you then get in touch with Rugby Borough Council in the first instance. Once you are registered with them they may refer you to Hope4 in which case we will assess how we can help you.

Because of restrictions due to Covid-19 our Centre is not open so our Key Workers will not be able to meet you face to face. If you are referred to us then we would seek to help you as soon as possible.

We would aim to work with you to help you become housed and stay housed but also to assist in other areas as well. This is achievable by working together in partnership. With your cooperation we can make this work.

Other agencies who may be able to help are:

Concerned about someone sleeping rough?

Worried about someone who is over 18 and rough sleeping? Please contact StreetLink. Follow the link to report your concern and this will alert the local authority and/or outreach team who will follow up. Worried about someone who is under 18 and rough sleeping? In this instance the advice is to call the police.
