Temporary and Emergency Accommodation
The States of Guernsey do not provide emergency accommodation. If you find yourself about to be made homeless and you cannot move in with friends or family, you should look for temporary accommodation in a guest house or hotel or make contact with one of the statutory and charitable agencies who provide temporary, emergency or crisis accommodation:
Sarnia Housing provides temporary housing for the homeless with the object of keeping families together. For more information click here.
Maison St Pierre is a housing charity that provides accommodation to homeless women and their children. For more information click here.
St Julian's House accommodates single homeless local men and women aged 18 and over. For more information please contact them directly on 01481 720671 .
The Women's Refuge provides safe, emergency accommodation to women and their children fleeing abusive relationships, to enable them to take control of their lives and make choices about their future. For the official website click here.
The Guernsey Youth Housing Project, run by Action for Children, provides a drop-in advice centre and emergency accommodation to homeless young people. For more information click here and for the official website click here.
What do I do if I am about to be evicted?
If you are a tenant in a private rented property and your landlord is putting pressure on you to leave but you have nowhere to go, you should stay where you are. If your landlord takes you to court to evict you, the court will give you a stay of eviction. The length of that stay will take into account your chances of finding somewhere to live.
The Citizens Advice Bureau can give you more information about your rights as a tenant facing eviction.
