Duty to Refer
The Homelessness Reduction Act 2017 introduces a new duty on specified public bodies in England to refer consenting people, who they believe to be homeless or threatened with homelessness to the local authority; for example, if they are likely to become homeless within 56 days. It is important that these organisations make these referrals to us so that we can prevent and relieve homelessness effectively. For more information visit:Homes in the City - Duty to Refer
