Homeless or at risk

If you are facing homelessness or worried that you might be in the near future, it is important to seek help as early as possible. There is a single pathway response for people facing homelessness in Leicester and therefore as a first step we recommend that you contact Leicester City Council

Call 0116 454 1008. Lines are open Monday to Friday, 8am to 6pm. If you are homeless in an emergency outside of these hours, please contact Leicester City Council on 0116 221 2770 for assistance.

If you lived in Leicestershire county, rather than city, before you became homeless you may need to contact one of Leicestershire’s District Councils. Contact details can be found here.

If you are moving on from asylum accommodation with refugee status please find some helpful information here.
