Book an Appointment

The Housing Solutions team can provide advice and assistance around your housing situation. Our aim is to help prevent you from becoming homeless where possible.

  

During your appointment you are likely to be asked to provide information and documentation which will help us to decide whether you are eligible for assistance. It is important that you provide all of the requested information to your housing solutions officer promptly to enable them to fully assess your case. 

 

Please note: Due to the implementation of the Housing (Wales) Act 2014 we are now able to solve your housing challenges by securing accommodation in the private rented sector with an Assured Shorthold Tenancy that lasts no less than six months.
