End it Before it Begins
Join our campaign to prevent homelessness before it begins.
Last year BHT Advice prevented 927 households from becoming homeless.
The service has been providing free specialist advice for more than 25 years. Advice is given on a range housing, immigration and welfare benefits related issues.
BHT has advice centres in Brighton and Hove, Eastbourne, and Hastings. Appointments can be by email, telephone or through attending a drop-in session.
The best way to stop homelessness is to prevent it before it even happens. That's why we are asking people to back our campaign - #EndItBeforeItBegins.
By getting professional help as soon as they can, people can protect their homes and avoid falling into homelessness. If you are worried about your housing or know someone who is then get in touch now.
Mike was made redundant after working as a caretaker in the same job for 36 years. His flat was owned by his employers and when they went into liquidation, not only did he lose his job but he was told to leave his flat of 20 years.
BHT Advice become involved and helped him to settle the case with his landlord and get a new home with a housing association.
Without the support of BHT, Mike, whose wife had recently died, would have lost his home.
