  • On 3rd April 2018 the Homeless Reduction Act (HRA) came into effect and changed the way that we deal with any eligible person who is at risk of homelessness.
  • New statutory duties enable us to work with you to prevent or relieve your homelessness within the next 56 days. 
  • Assistance is available to all eligible households & may result in a Prevention or Relief Duty being offered to you.
