Homelessness: a guide to the duty to refer

This guide is primarily designed for professionals in public authorities subject to the duty to refer, although it will also be of interest to homelessness officials in local authorities.

The guide outlines what the purpose of the duty to refer is, some advice for identifying when someone is threatened with homelessness, and what the procedures are for referring someone to a local authority.

It also answers some frequently asked questions.
