Housing advice for younger people

Want to talk to someone in person about your options?

If you feel like you've nowhere to go or you're finding it hard to cope with your housing situation, you can talk to one of our housing advisers who will try their best to help you out. 

Living at home can be tough, especially if you aren't getting on with the people you live with. It's tempting to want to move out, but living on your own or with strangers has challenges too. Get help or advice if you aren't safe at home. 

The Housing Executive is responsible for helping people in Northern Ireland who are homeless. It is also a social landlord and manages and awards lots of social housing.

Having children or being pregnant means you have to think about your additional responsibilities when finding a home. It can be tough, however make sure you get your housing situation under control.

Money can get tight when you're living in your own home. You may be entitled to some financial assistance to help with rent and other costs.

Renting a home from a private landlord or through an agent could be an option, but there are potential problems which you should be aware of before taking on a tenancy. Know your rights and responsibilities.

There are lots of people out there you can talk to if something's bothering you. There are several organisations that help younger people.

Most students who aren’t living at home will either move into housing provided by their college or university or find somewhere to rent privately. Check the college’s website or prospectus for information on the housing options it provides.

Talk to someone if you haven't got anywhere safe to stay. Social Services can help you if you are under 18 and don't have anywhere safe to live. The Housing Executive may be able to help if you are over 18. 

Speak to our advisers if you have any questions or you're worried about talking to these services. We can explain your rights.
