We will refer anyone homeless or at risk of homelessness to our housing solutions officer who will assess you by phone.

Many housing associations have also closed their offices. Please contact them to check they are open before you visit them.

Complete the AdviceAid questionnaire to get advice about:

  • how to solve problems affecting your housing situation
  • what to do if you have been asked to leave your property
  • how you can find somewhere else to live
  • how we can help you.

You don’t need to give any personal details about who you are or where you live.
