If you are homeless you may be able to stay in a hostel.

You'll need a referral to get into many hostels and nightshelters. This means an agency or Kirklees Council Housing Solutions Service will need to contact the hostel on your behalf.

Some hostels and nightshelters will let you call them yourself or turn up in person. This is called self-referral.

You can use the free courtesy phone at our Customer Service Centres to phone hostels.
