Homeless After Leaving Hospital

This page provides advice for people who will not have anywhere to live after they have been discharged from hospital.

If you believe you will not have anywhere to live after leaving hospital, either because you do not have a home or because your home is now unsuitable for you to live in, there is help available to you. 

Recommended Process

  1. Tell the hospital nursing staff as soon as possible. They will ask the hospital discharge team to help as much as they can
  2. The discharge team may refer you to our Housing Options Team, who will assess your situation
  3. If you are unable to stay with friends or family, you may be offered temporary accommodation while your situation is assessed
  4. If you have a home already but it needs to be adapted, the hospital will refer you to Nottinghamshire County Council who are responsible for adaptations and the Disabled Facilities Grant.
