Housing advice for Northern Ireland

Leaving home

As you grow up, there will be times when you won't always see eye to eye with your parents or guardians. However, if you're having problems living at home, moving out is not the only option.You may be able to resolve any issues you're having with your parents if you can set up ground rules and follow these.

Moving can be stressful, complicated and expensive. Whether you’re moving in, moving on or moving out careful planning can make the process easier.

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.
