A letter for housing advisors to send on a homeless person's behalf to social services where they:
Ideally the request for a Children Act assessment should be made in advance of the date on which the homeless applicant is to be excluded from their temporary accommodation by the housing authority.
Representations should also be sent to the housing authority, for example to request that they exercise their power to continue providing accommodation until the review is completed and the Children Act assessment is undertaken.
If you are not a specialist or solicitor you should consider referring the person to a legal aid provider who specialises in housing or community care.
