I am under 18 and homeless or could be homeless


If you are 16 or 17 years old and have not previously been in care, we will work with you and your parent(s)/guardian(s) to see if we can come to a solution.

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.

If we are unable to get agreement for you to return home and you have nowhere to sleep that night, we will arrange temporary accommodation for you.

If we cannot resolve these issues, we will arrange a panel meeting to look at why you are homeless and support you into accommodation.
