Homelessness

The Housing Options and Homelessness Team can offer advice to people who are homeless or at risk of losing their home.

Please contact us if you are at risk of becoming homeless.  The earlier we can intervene, the better the opportunity of achieving a successful outcome.

One of our main aims is to prevent homelessness occurring and we work in close partnership with a number of external agencies and internal departments in order to achieve this.  External agencies include SASH - Safe and Sound Homes, YMCA, Foundation Housing, Citizen Advice Bureau and Social Services.  Internal agencies include Housing Benefits, Housing Management and Environmental Health departments.

You can contact a Housing Options Advisor on 01748 901150 to make an appointment to see an officer during office hours.
