If a person is eligible, homeless and in a priority need, you may qualify for emergency or temporary housing.

To qualify, you must:

  • be legally homeless
  • meet the necessary immigration and residence conditions - also known as 'eligible for assistance'
  • have a priority need for housing, or someone in your household must fall into a priority need group

Emergency housing is a short-term option while we look into your housing situation. We could offer you somewhere in a:

  • bed and breakfast (B&B)
  • self-contained flat or house

When looking at your circumstances, we will consider things like:

  • travel time to work
  • disruption to children's education
  • caring responsibilities

We may place you in emergency accommodation outside of North Norfolk if there is a shortage of available accommodation.
