You don’t have to be living on the street to be homeless. You may be legally classed as homeless if you are sleeping on a friend’s sofa, staying in a hostel, suffering from overcrowding, or other bad conditions.

If you are at risk

If you feel unsafe or at risk call the police on 999 in an emergency or 101 for advice and support.
