WHAT WE DO
Advice and guidance
All advice and guidance is delivered over the phone or email. You can also message us on Facebook.
We provide housing and support to young people under 25 years old who have a local connection to North East Lincolnshire and are homeless or at risk of homelessness.
Are you homeless tonight?
Doorstep does not provide emergency accommodation so you will need to let the Homeless Team know as soon as possible if you have nowhere to stay tonight. They will decide if you are in priority need for emergency housing. We can help you to make a Homeless application but we do not decide if you are eligible for emergency housing. If you are under 18 years old you will be referred to the Children’s Front Door.
This applies if you are 16 or 17, if you are pregnant or have children, if you are a care leaver, if you have recently left prison, or if you have a mental health diagnosis or a physical/learning disability.
If the Homeless Team or Social Services have decided that you are in priority need, and can pay for you to access emergency housing, you will have a bed on a night-by-night basis until something more long-term is found.
If you are rough sleeping you can call Harbour Place Day Centre on 01472 344118 (9am- 5pm) or the Home Options Team on 01472 326296.
