How we help people who are or are at risk of becoming homeless.


Tackling homelessness and rough sleeping is a key priority for the Council. We work to prevent homelessness, including through helping people stay in their current accommodation or find a new place to live.

Together with our charity partners, we also work around the clock to offer accommodation and support to people experiencing rough sleeping.

Find out more about the services we provide and how you can access support through these web pages  

Westminster City Council has a range of legal duties to help people who are at risk of, or experiencing, homelessness. Please see Shelter's guide to Local Authority Duties here for more information.
