If you need to leave your home, but have somewhere safe to stay temporarily (for example, with friends or family), you should complete the online homelessness application form to begin your assessment and we will contact you to arrange an appointment as early as the next day if necessary.

We will not contact the perpetrator if you make an application to us.

However, it will be useful if you can provide us with any supporting evidence you may have, such as police reports, injunctions and details of any areas you feel you would not remain safe in.

You can also visit our domestic abuse guidance page for information on other sources of support.

Once you have submitted your form, we will contact you to discuss your application and arrange a time for an appointment.
