Making a Homeless Application

If you are homeless or at risk of becoming homeless, we may owe you some duties to help prevent or relieve your homelessness.

Visit our If you are homeless or at risk of becoming homeless pages for further advice or information on how to make a homeless application.

Finding a home to rent

The quickest solution to most housing issues is to secure accommodation in the Private Rented sector.

See Renting a home in the private sector.


If you need assistance with paying your rent either via Housing Benefit or Universal Credit, it is important to be aware of the Local Housing Allowance rates when looking for accommodation. The Local Housing Allowance is the amount of benefits you will receive towards your rent.

The rates for our area are available at Local Housing Allowance Rates.
