Emergency housing options

Different accommodation types will be appropriate to different homeless young people and those who have specialised support needs.

Emergency housing: what are the options?

Local authorities will use emergency and temporary accommodation to house homeless young people during an assessment of their needs or where they have been found to be statutorily homeless.

Emergency housing for 16 and 17 year olds

Emergency accommodation for homeless 16 and 17 year olds must be appropriate. UK Government guidance states that bed and breakfast accommodation is not suitable.

Emergency housing for 18 to 25 year olds

Different accommodation options will be open to a young homeless person, depending on availability and local authority provision.
