Housing Advice

If you are a homeless young person, at risk of homelessness, or facing family difficulties, find out what advice Alone in London can offer you.

We can provide you with one-to-one sessions with one of our advisors, who will find out about your circumstances and talk you through your options. We can also support you while you take the first steps to secure stable accommodation.

This we do by:

  • providing information about hostels and other types of suitable housing,
  • referring you to hostels and shared accommodation,
  • helping you complete forms,
  • helping you with claiming benefit entitlements,
  • speaking to other agencies on your behalf,
  • introducing you to our other services, such as Training & Employment and Family Mediation, and
  • signposting you to a range of external support services, depending on your circumstances.

Our Advice Drop-in Service is open from Monday to Friday from 9:00am to 12.15pm.
