Are you worried about losing your home?
Anyone can find themselves homeless and knowing you may not have somewhere to live can be a scary time.
The first step is to ask for help and Torbay Council’s website has lots of information and contact details of charities and organisations that can support you in working out the next best steps. 
If you are worried that you won’t be able to pay your rent or mortgage, or have found yourself living with family or friends, there is help out there.  
You may have found yourself in a situation where your relationship with your family has broken down and you have had to leave, or your Landlord has served you with an eviction notice, the sooner you ask for help the better.
To see what support there is and who can provide you with advice visit:
