What are my options? Think very carefully about what you would like to do; try to be realistic about what can be done to your home or where you would like to live. We often love our homes and want to stay there at all costs so that the daily norm is not disrupted. However, this may not be a viable long term solution.If you need to move home, you can get advice and assistance from your local homelessness team or housing team. Depending on your personal circumstances the local authority may not have to provide you with a home, but they do have to give you practical advice and support to find a home.
