This guide has been developed to help frontline advisers working in local authorities and the advice sector in England, to advise ex-Service personnel and their families when dealing with housing enquiries & homelessness. The guide has been developed in the context of the government’s commitment to ensure Armed Forces personnel are not disadvantaged when accessing housing. This guide sets out current legislative obligations for local housing authorities and provides links to other useful sites. Links also provide details of practice developed to support service personnel in their transition to civilian life.
