Professionals only - refer homelessness

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

Make an online referral

You can also email dutytorefer@sevenoaks.gov.uk 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.
