If you are a care leaver with a local connection to Essex, you may be able to get help with housing from any council in Essex, though this will be dependent on your age and circumstances.
Most care leavers in Essex should not need to approach a homeless service as this will be prevented by a planned move to independence with your personal advisor from Essex Social Care.
You may be offered short term supported housing to gain the skills to live independently and then be moved on into independent accommodation. In some cases, if your personal advisor believes that you are already have the skills to manage your own home you may be assisted by the local council to move into your own independent accommodation.
If you are homeless or threatened with homelessness, you should complete the following Housing Options Assessment Form.
