They will be managing cases from start to finish, so you will have your own individual case officer that will help you find the best solution for your circumstances.

- Name of person requiring Housing help

Alternatively, you cancomplete our online Housing contact form.
What will happen next?
- We will offer you advice on housing-related matters, based on your personal circumstances.
- If your situation is not an emergency the Housing Solutions officer will book an appointment to see you, face-to-face, in one of our council offices.
- They will inform you of the date, time and location of your appointment and will provide you with a full list of documents required at your meeting.
What will happen at my appointment?
- The Housing officer will check your documents and discuss and outline your most appropriate housing options.
