Who is eligible to apply as homeless?

The council has to accept an application for help from anyone who appears to be homeless or is likely to become homeless within two months. However, some people, such as asylum seekers and certain EU nationals are not entitled to help from the council. This section explains who is eligible, and what you can do if you can't get help from the council.
