Being kicked out of home means that you are being made to leave home by your parents or carers. This can happen for a number of reasons – maybe you don’t get on and they have lost their temper from too many arguments, maybe the family situation has changed and they think it’s no longer practical for you to be living there.
It really sucks to be treated like this and kicked out – it’s important to feel like you have safety and stability which would ideally be found at home, but sometimes this is sadly not the case.
If you do get kicked out of home, there are options for you, depending on your age. If you have a social worker already, you can contact them, or if you don’t have one or can’t get hold of them then you can call a helpline that can connect you with one.
There is housing and support for young people who are kicked out and have nowhere to go, especially if you are aged 16 or under.
Until you can get in contact with a social worker, try to make sure you are in a safe place – this could be a friend’s house, another relative’s house, or a public place with shelter like a hospital or shopping centre or library depending what time it is and what is open.
