Homelessness

The definition of homeless is:

  • You have no accommodation in the UK or elsewhere which is available for your occupation and which you have the legal right to occupy.
  • You have a home but cannot gain entry to it.
  • Your home is a boat, mobile home or caravan and you have nowhere legally to moor it or park it.
  • You have nowhere you can live together with your immediate family.
  • You have somewhere to stay but it is unreasonable for you to continue to stay there, for example due to Domestic Violence.

A person is threatened with homelessness if he or she is likely to be homeless within 28 days.
