Housing support and guidance for residents in the Vale of Glamorgan including Social Housing tenancy, private renting and homelessness 


Whether you are an owner occupier, living with family or friends, hold a Social Housing tenancy or are in private rented accommodation our Housing Solutions Team can offer advice and guidance. 


Together we will develop and agree a Personal Housing Plan (PHP) which will contain a set of reasonable steps, these steps when completed will assist you in resolving your housing difficulties. We can help by:

  • Registering for  Homes4u
  • Discussing alternative solutions such as the private sector rental market
