Some English public bodies have a duty to notify a council of people who may be homeless, or at risk of becoming homeless, within 56 days.
Before making the referral, you must:
- Allow the person concerned to identify the local council they would like the notification to be made to
- Have consent from the person concerned so their contact details can be shared with the council
You can also email firstname.lastname@example.org with details of the person, how consent has been obtained and their circumstances.
Further information is available on the Duty to refer page on the GOV.UK website.
