LEicestershire Homelessness prevention coaching service

Supporting vulnerable people before crisis point to prevent homelessness

Important Notice

In response to the Covid-19 outbreak we are changing how you access support from P3 to ensure both your safety and the safety of our staff.

Services are now by APPOINTMENT ONLY.

To make an appointment contact LeicsHPC@p3charity.org or call us on
0116 255 3228.

Please note the Homelessness Prevention Coaching service will be closing on 30 April.

For urgent advice or further information, please contact the P3 Leicester team on 0116 255 3228. If you live in Leicester and your home is at risk, our Floating Support Service may be able to help.


This coaching and support service works with individuals, couples and families who are at risk of homelessness before things reach crisis point in order to prevent them from losing their home, or returning to a life on the streets.

We aim to enable people to access and/or sustain accommodation independently, and increase their chances of securing a long-term home. We can coach you to build on existing strengths, as well as identifying gaps where you may need extra support. 

We can help if you are:

  •  Age 16+
  • A resident of Leicester, Leicestershire or Rutland or with a local connection to the area
  • In need of support to prevent homelessness

What support is available?

We will work with you to create a housing-related action plan tailored to your needs. We can offer coaching with:

  • Developing daily living skills such as budgeting and meal-planning
  • Self-esteem and emotional wellbeing
  • Personal development, such as employment and training
  • Accessing community groups and social opportunities
  • Drug and alcohol misuse
  • Accessing other support agencies

How to get referred

You can contact us by telephone on 0116 255 3228, by email at LeicsHPC@p3charity.org or by dropping into our Navigator in Leicester (details below).
