Homelessness

Homelessness Assistance

Losing your accommodation can be very stressful and most people manage to find another home without assistance.  However, if you have been unable to resolve your own housing difficulty we may be able to provide you with information to equip you to do so or recommend a service or agency that will be able to provide some practical help. 

In some circumstances the council will have a duty to provide emergency accommodation which is outlined in the Homelessness Leaflet No1: Our Duty .

The Housing Help Point will listen to your specific housing situation and ensure that you put in contact with the right specialist.  Alternatively, you can complete an online form here to make an enquiry.

Homelessness Strategy

Our Homelessness Strategy 2008-13 has been produced as a result of partnership working with both providers and users of council services. The strategy explains what the council and its partners are going to do to tackle homelessness in Crawley and is informed by the Homelessness Review which took place between January and April 2008.

We have prepared a report setting out progress to the action plan over the past three years, including some headline key achievements. View the Homelessness Strategy and Action Plan .

The council has prepared a refreshed Housing Strategy and Action Plan , covering the period 2012-14. Preventing and reducing homelessness remains one of the priorities in the refreshed Housing Strategy, which identifies the new homelessness actions within its Action Plan. This includes addressing the challenges and opportunities arising from the Government’s radical new agenda for housing and welfare reform.
