Homelessness is a very stressful and traumatic time for anyone to go through.  Sophia works in partnership with Local Authorities and only accepts referrals for people who are registered as homeless and on a Local Authority list.  Sophia, unfortunately, does accept self-referrals. There are however other ways to get the help you need. 

Below are contact numbers and links to homeless services in your area.
