Advice and Information

Advice and Information




The vision of the future is one where people who are homeless, or at risk of homelessness, receive full information on their rights, the range of options available to resolve their housing difficulty and seamless access to other relevant services.




The role of information and advice services for people who are homeless is to listen, to provide clear information and advice on rights, accommodation options, and other relevant services that will enable them to improve their housing situation.
