Want to leave home?

In most cases you can leave home without the permission of your parent(s) or carer when you are 16.

Under 16 and homeless?

If you are not getting on with your parent(s) or carer, you may feel you are forced to leave home.

If you are under 16 and are forced to leave home, you can contact our Housing Advice Team.

Over 16 and homeless?

We have a duty to give you a home if you become homeless. You are homeless if:

  • no-one is looking after you
  • you are lost or abandoned
  • the person who has been caring for you is unable to look after you
  • you are aged 16 or 17 and we think your welfare could be seriously threatened if we do not give you a home

InComE Project could help you

If you are over the age of 18 and live in Haringey with:

  • your parents who rent their home from Haringey Council or a housing association, or
  • someone else who rents their home from Haringey Council or a housing association, and
  • you are overcrowded, then

The InComE Project can resolve your overcrowding by helping you secure employment or access to education and training to help you gain employment in the future, while also providing you with accommodation of your own.

If you are interested in finding out more about InComE or know anyone else who might benefit from the project please contact the InComE team:
