The Council's Housing Options Officers Team will offer advice and assistance to households threatened with homelessness and wherever possible we will aim to help people remain in their homes, if this is a suitable option. A range of services is available to help with prevention of homelessness, including mediation with families and landlords, Bond Guarantee Scheme, tenancy advice and referrals for floating support.

If you are homeless in the next 56 days or received a Notice to leave your accommodation, you must contact Housing Options Team as soon as possible on 0300 123 2442 (Option 2)

If you have concerns about someone rough sleeping please telephone Forfutures on 0300 123 2442, option four (24 hours).
