Provides advice for people who won’t have anywhere to live after they're discharged from hospital.

You should tell the hospital nursing staff as soon as possible, so that they know that you will be homeless when you are discharged. They will ask the hospital discharge team to help if they can.

The discharge team may refer you to the housing options team here at the council. They will assess your situation and you may be offered temporary accommodation while your application is assessed.

Does your home need to be adapted?

If you have a home already but it needs to be adapted, the hospital will refer you to the team within the Council that deal with Disabled Facilities Grants (DFGs). 

Please contact us on 01263 516060 for more information and to request an assessment of your needs.
