7. Homeless after dischonourable discharge

Regardless of whether you have been dishonourably discharged from the armed forces, you will still be subject to the prevention and relief duties under the homelessness legislation. You may not be owed a temporary accommodation or full homelessness duty, however you will still receive support and assistance to find accommodation.

You may also be deemed as not qualifying for additional priority banding on Devon Home Choice if you have been dishonourably discharged from the armed forces. However, other housing options such as support to obtain private rented or supported accommodation will still be offered where possible.
