Inviting homeless applicant to consent to referral to social services, because may be ineligible or not owed a housing duty (section 96 referral duty)
There is a duty to invite a homeless applicant to consent to details of their case being referred to social services where:
- there are children in their household, and
- they may be homeless, but a duty under section 68, 73 or 75 is unlikely to be owed, or
- they may be threatened with homelessness, but the section 66 prevention duty is unlikely to be owed.
This letter enables you to invite the applicant to consent to such a referral, explains why you have to have to do this, and briefly explains what help social services may offer if a referral is made.
