What we can help with

Our Early Intervention team can help you with any problems making it difficult to stay in your home, such as:

  • rent arrears or other debt worries
  • arguments at home or relationship breakdowns
  • problems with your tenancy
  • problems with repairs or adaptations
  • changes to your household
  • changes to your health

You can also ask your GP, support or social worker, or health visitor to refer you to our Homelessness Prevention service.

This service can:

  • give you debt advice through specialist agencies
  • tell you which benefits you may be entitled to and how to claim them
  • talk to other household members, neighbours and tenants or landlords to help resolve problems
  • tell you how to access private rented accommodation
  • put you in contact with other support services, such as East Sussex Credit Union
  • tell you how to access short term accommodation in volunteers' homes, such as Sussex Nightstop
  • give you advice on people moving into or out of your home, including growing families and overcrowding
