Prevention of Homelessness Service

Delivered by Govan Law Centre
  • Benefits advice
  • Housing and homelessness
  • Human rights advice

We have specialist solicitors, vulnerable person caseworkers, money advice and welfare rights workers. We intervene as early as we can to prevent some of the most vulnerable people being made homeless. We represent our clients in disputes with landlords and lenders, we prevent evictions and repossessions. We help people across all tenures who are threatened with homelessness: social rented, private rented and home owners. We prevent evictions and repossessions, help people access homelessness accommodation, and ensure statutory rights and general housing rights are enforced.
