Homelessness

If you're homeless or threatened with homelessness you may need advice on what action you're able to take, what housing options you have and information about help that we can provide.

As a council, we have a responsibility for certain homeless people or people threatened with homelessness.

Please read through the questions and answers on our homelessness advice booklet to see if you or someone you know meets the criteria.

Additional informationa and advice can be found from the National Homeless Advice Service.
