How to request a review/appeal a homelessness decision
After we have fully assessed a homelessness application, we will provide you with a decision letter. That letter will give you information about how you can request a review of the decision, if you disagree with it.
You have 21 days from receipt of the assessment letter to request a review of the decision, in effect to appeal the decision. You can verbally request a review but it is probably more effective if you can put your reasons in writing or get a housing advice agency to do so on your behalf.
Any review /appeal assessment will be carried out by a senior officer who has not previously been involved with your case.
