Find emergency and homelessness support

If you are facing a crisis at home and can’t see a way forward, UCWB can help with emergency relief and services to put you and your family back on your feet.

If you are at risk of homelessness or having trouble putting food on the table for yourself, or for you and your family, we can provide emergency relief to eligible recipients. The friendly team at UCWB can also support you with referral to a range of  services designed to help you to organise your money and to keep you in your own home.
