You should normally go to the Housing Executive for help if you are worried about becoming homeless.  However, if you’re under 18 , Social Services may have to help you if you don’t have anywhere safe to live. 

If you have nowhere safe to live, go to your local Housing Executive office or to your local Health & Social Care Trust and ask for help.
