Leicester City Council can offer you help or advice, if you are homeless, or are likely to become homeless, for example in one of the following circumstances:

  • You have received a notice from your landlord to leave your current home, or you have been illegally evicted by your landlord.
  • You are living with someone else who has asked you to leave their home.
  • It is not reasonable to carry on living in your present accommodation because of overcrowding, harassment from your landlord, or if we have declared it unfit to live in
  • You are living in fear of violence, including domestic violence, racial or homophobic harassment, or threats from your landlord.

The MyHOME app aims to provide you with the right help, advice and information if you’re at risk of homelessness or are having housing difficulties.

Referral Procedure

Please call 0116 454 1008 during office hours. If you are homeless in an emergency outside of these hours, please contact us on 0116 221 2770 for assistance.

Duty to refer

The duty to refer requires certain named public authorities in England to notify a local housing authority, such as Leicester City Council, of service users they think may be homeless or at risk of becoming homeless. Please use the Homelessness Reduction Act Referral Form to notify us of such cases, so we can provide the appropriate support to the household.
