Public authority Duty to Refer

By law certain public organisations must tell us about people who are:

  • currently homeless
  • at risk of becoming homeless in the next 56 days.

Before you can tell us about someone in either of these situations:

  • they must give their consent for you to tell us about them, including their contact details, and
  • they must have chosen Manchester City Council as the housing authority they want to be referred to, and
  • you must tell them they may still need to complete a homelessness application.
