When you have completed the Homeless Person’s Application form your case will be assigned to a Homeless Officer.
The Officer will carry out a full assessment of your situation, which may involve further interviews or home visits.
Once the Homeless officer has all the relevant information you will be notified of the council’s decision, in writing. Our target is to carry out the assessment within 28 days.
When carrying out an assessment, we look at the following:
- Whether you are homeless
- Whether you are intentionally homeless
- Whether you have a local connection to the city
