How to get support if you are homeless or about to lose your home.
If you have lost your home or could lose it, contact our housing options team as soon as possible using our form below.
- Give you advice on your legal rights

Tell us that you are homeless
If you are homeless or about to become homeless, please let us know and we will help you.
Report a rough sleeper
If you see someone sleeping rough in Aldershot or Farnborough please let us know.
If you are part of a public sector organisation please tell us about someone who is likely to become homeless.
What homelessness is
You are homeless if you do not have a home that you can live in legally. You are not homeless if:
- You can legally stay in your home
- There is a second home which is available to you
You may be homeless if you have a home, but cannot live there for certain reasons:
- You have been evicted illegally from it
- It's not reasonable for you to stay in your home, because of domestic violence or threats of violence against you or a member of your family
We will do everything possible to prevent you from becoming homeless, but it is important that you contact us without delay, even if you feel your situation is hopeless.
If we cannot prevent your homelessness, we can give you advice about other housing options that may be available to you.
Temporary accommodation during freezing temperatures
Emergency support is available to people sleeping rough when temperatures drop below freezing and we provide temporary bed and breakfast accommodation for vulnerable people.
If you are concerned about someone that you have seen sleeping rough, you can report it to us using our Report a rough sleeper form or through the StreetLink website, so that we can help them to access the support they need.
Help if you are under 25, single and homeless
Youth Aims provides advice, information, mediation and rent deposits to young people aged 16-25. For details, see the Youth Aims website.
If you have an urgent housing problem
We can assess most requests for help over the phone or in person at our council offices, which means you will not need to complete a housing application form.
We will base our decision on your housing circumstances now and not on your future housing need.
You can do this by contacting our housing options team using the contact details below or by completing our tell us that you are homeless form.
