Beware of scammers

We are aware of an online scam going around on social media.

It claims to be able to make your housing application a priority and give you the right to buy after 3 years.

We only ever allocate homes according to our policy. Every application goes through a series of checks to make sure it is valid and correctly prioritised.

You don't have to be on the streets to be considered homeless. Here are some situations we can help with:

  • You can't afford to stay where you are 

  • You can't live together as a family 

  • Your accommodation is very temporary

  • You are "sofa surfing" 

  • You are leaving the Armed Forces 

  • Your parents have asked you to leave 

  • Your relationship has broken down  

If you are worried about homelessness or think you are going to lose your home the earlier you get advice, the less likely you are to become homeless.  

Your options may be limited but we are here to guide you to a positive outcome. We have lots of resources to find the housing options relevant to you.
