A lad that my daughter knows has just been evicted from his house and is currently camping as he is homeless. He’s been to the local authority but needless to say things take time to get sorted. He’s in North Hampshire and I wondered if anyone had any advice on where he might turn - unfortunately we’re not in a position to help much.
I 've not been involved with the homeless stuff now for 15 months, and don't know this area well, but a couple of suggestions:
Obviously,supposing he isn't working,he needs to contact the Job Centre and make a claim for UB.
Next, I would find the nearest Food bank,and, if it's Tressel, he stands a good chance of being pointed in helpful directions.There is,also, the CAB, and, not least, the local churches.
Most of all,the guy needs a friend.Overwhelmingly, the homeless I have met have not began, at least,as heavy drinkers,substance abusers etc,etc, their dire circumstances and ESPECIALLY the total lack of someone ,living an ordinary life,to communicate with, just sucks them into the vortex of despair that is homelessness.I
As a single person, the Council probably won't help him, I hope he can get something sorted this side of winter.
