North Norfolk District Council’s Early Intervention Team are working to help residents across the District who are threatened with homelessness.

It is never too early to get help and the Early Intervention Team provides support for individuals and families across North Norfolk with housing-related issues and will work to address the problem.

The team try to do this at an early stage before the individual or family become homeless and ideally before a significant risk of homelessness arises. They are part of the Council’s Housing Options team and work closely with other services to identify those in need and provide support and advice.

If you or someone you know are having problems which make it difficult at home, such as:

  • Rent arrears or other debt worries
  • Arguments at home or relationship breakdowns
  • Changes to your household
  • Changes to your health

The Early Intervention Team can help

If you or someone you may know is threatened with homelessness, the Early Intervention Team can help and assist you by:

  • Talking through some options, you may have to help yourself
  • Try to help keep you in your current home where possible
  • Work with you to secure alternative accommodation

Where possible, the Council aims to make sure residents remain in their current homes by helping at an early stage, the Early Intervention Team will seek to understand your current situation and help to resolve your situation.
