Homelessness is bad for your health and particularly damaging for children.
Studies show that being without a stable home can worsen medial conditions such as depression and have a negative impact on children's education.
Temporary accommodation is sometimes the only way Westminster City Council is able to house applicants for a period of time.
The Housing Options Service can help you avoid becoming homeless and living in temporary accommodation. If you think you might become homeless, please tell us quickly, so we can try to stop this happening.
If you are already homeless, please contact us as soon as possible.
