Homeless

Sometimes an argument or situation at home can result in being kicked out.

What should you do if this ever happens to you?

The first thing you need to think about is where you are going to sleep. This can take a while so don't put it off. The last thing you want is to end up leaving it too late to find somewhere.

Here are some things you can do (the best option is the first so start at the top and work down the list):

  • Try and sort out somewhere to stay with family / relatives.
  • Ask your friends if one of them can put you up for the night.
  • Call us on 0161 603 4500.
  • If there is enough time, ask your teacher, Connexions personal adviser or youth worker for help in sorting somewhere out.
  • If you can't find anywhere ring Salford's Housing Options service on 0161 793 2020 or email them at housing.advicecentre@salford.gov.uk. For more information visit the homelessness help webpage.
  • Contact the police on 999┬áif all of the above fail and you are running out of time to find somewhere.

Your safety is the most important thing to think about and none of the above people will mind you asking for help.

Remember one thing - if you are homeless, even on a temporary basis, you are very vulnerable so don't accept help from just anyone and never do or agree to anything that you would normally think is a bit dodgy.
