Advice and Homeless Prevention

Are you homeless or about to be made homeless and need help? Your local Housing Options Team can advise you about your rights and try to help prevent you from becoming homeless.

During a Housing Options appointment, the officer will explore all of your housing options, discussing your households requirements, the affordability and suitability of your existing accommodation and other housing alternatives. Please telephone your local council to make an appointment. In special circumstances a home visit can be arranged.

There can be many causes of homelessness. Our aim is to intervene at an early stage to prevent people from losing their accommodation; therefore we would urge you to contact the team as soon as possible so that we can give you personal advice.
