York Housing Association

Homeless Prevention Scheme

York Homeless Prevention works to prevent homelessness by offering housing related support to individuals and families throughout the City of York.  We work with customers to retain their tenancies in private rented, social housing and even work with owner occupiers.

You may be struggling to pay your rent, bills, or mortgage or owe money and need to budget and negotiate with creditors. You may receive letters about your money or home, which you don't understand or neighbors  could be causing problems for you.

Support workers will help you with your accommodation problems, help you access benefits, look at any debt you may have and help you with this. Support workers will also look at what benefits you may be entitled to and talk to other agencies like your landlord on your behalf.


This scheme is for anyone over 18 living within the City of York boundary at risk of losing their home.

What Happens Next?

You can apply either by phoning our office on 01904 636061, or contacting the City of York Councils  Single Access Officer on 01904 553844

We will arrange to meet you to see how we are able to offer you help.

The service is confidential. We will only share information with agencies who require it, and with your agreement.
