Duty to Refer

Under the Homeless Reduction Act 2017, there is now a duty placed on certain public authorities to refer those who are homeless or threatened with homelessness to a local housing authority in England. 

Before making a referral please ensure the following; 

  • You have the consent of the individual to make the referral. 
  • You have allowed the individual to choose the housing authority in England that they would like the referral to be made to. 
  • You have consent from the individual to share their contact details to the housing authority so that they can be contacted regarding their referral.

To make a referral to us please complete our online form:
