I am a care leaver with nowhere to go


Help and support for young people who are no longer in care (16 - 25 years).

You may find yourself at risk of being homeless for many reasons. Do not wait until you become homeless tell us you are at risk of becoming homeless.

If you need somewhere to sleep tonight contact us on 08081 968 406 or email housingsolutions@durham.gov.uk.

We will work with you to progress to living independently. Together we'll look at your options and agree the best way forward, based on your needs and your situation.

For more information or a referral, please contact us or see our Get help to avoid becoming homeless information, which includes how to contact us outside of office hours.

For more information about other support we can offer you as a care leaver, see our Care leavers - our local offer for you page.
