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.
