If you are homeless now, or are threatened with being made homeless we can provide help and assistance.  This can be done in person, by telephoning 01246 242424  or by emailing the Housing Needs Officers at your local Contact Centre.

You will be interviewed by an experienced officer who will conduct an initial assessment of your housing needs. This officer will be your point of contact throughout your application and will work with you and other agencies to try and resolve your housing situation.  The Homelessness Application document here will give you more information on the homelessness process and provide details of the necessary documents you will need to bring with you to an interview.

We may also be able to help with problems such as  harassment and illegal eviction eviction or domestic violence  and can put you in touch with other agencies that offer support and advice.

The Housing Needs team can also help people who are sleeping rough during the freezing weather.

Under normal circumstances the council has to assess if a person is deemed to be homeless under set criteria – but this is suspended when temperatures fall below zero for three consecutive nights and the council can offer emergency shelter, for help telephone 01246 242424 or contact the Out of Hours Service if the Council is closed.
