The council's homelessness tests

Unfortunately the council cannot offer a permanent home to everyone who makes a homeless application. The council prioritises the help it gives to homeless applicants using three tests.

If you pass all three tests you should be offered permanent accommodation. If you do not pass all three tests you should be given advice and assistance to find a new home and, if required, be allowed to stay in temporary accommodation for a short spell.
