Housing Advice and Homelessness

Important: Issues with your home or homelessness should be dealt with as fast as possible.  Problems can often be resolved or prevented from getting worse with quick communications and intervention.  

What we can't do:

  • Instantly provide emergency accommodation or a property just based on you reporting as homeless.  The Council is governed by legislation regarding threatened or actual homelessness and has to follow the necessary laws.  
  • Instantly provide a council house to anyone who says they're homeless.  All applications to the housing register are assessed according to individual needs and offers are made according to priority.  
  • Provide free accommodation.  All accommodation has to be paid for; this may be through the payment of housing benefit which we can help you to organise a claim for.
