Poor mental health is both a cause and consequence of homelessness. The Homelessness Prevention Service can help you with any housing issues you have and work with mental health specialists to ensure you get the support you need. See our mental health and housing advice leaflet more information.
For more information on accessing mental health support in Coventry see:
These pages also detail other services which will be able to support you.
The earlier you get in touch with us, the more likely we’ll be able to resolve your housing situation. Call the Homelessness Prevention Service on 024 7683 4025.
Due to new homelessness legislation, you are not required to have priority need or links to a council area (local connection) to access the Homelessness Prevention Service. Priority need will only be taken into account to decide whether you are entitled to interim accommodation under a relief duty or owed a main housing duty.
This means that we may provide you with short-term accommodation if you meet a certain level of need. We will look at your situation and any people who are dependent on you to make a decision.
For further details on what gives you a priority need or a local connection, call Shelter on 0808 800 4444 and see the government's guidance.
